It's tough to bank on players without track record, but I'd go with Weaver and Kershaw as your pitchers. I would still want to know where Grienke lands before committing to him.

Morse, Hosmer, Jennings, and Heyward, Starlin, Mauer are all tremendous values, I would lock them up as well.

If LaRoche resigns with Washington, I could see Morse getting moved to the AL, where is glove won't factor into much, and he can become a DH. More AB's mean more production.

Hosmer and Jennings will see their value skyrocket after next season, while you know what you're getting from the other five.

Thanks for reply. I really want to keep Hosmer as well - he just had a really bad season so makes me a bit nervous, but if he does what a lot of people expect him to do, he can be a great value for the next 5 years.

I've included my converted projection to auction dollar values for 12 team OBP leagues (assuming CI MI 5 OF 1 UTIL) next to each player.

Matt Wieters: 17 - 10
Paul Konerko: 28 - 19
Robinson Cano: 47 - 41
Hanley Ramirez: 44 - 23
Starlin Castro: 16*** - 13
Ben Zobrist: 16* - 32
Joe Mauer: 10*** - 17
Michael Morse: 7* - 1
Desmond Jennings: 6*** - 11
Alex Gordon: 9* - 12
Shane Victorino: 24 - 11
Jason Heyward: 17*** - 20
J.J. Hardy: 17 - 0
Eric Hosmer: 15* - 9
Todd Frazier: 0 - 5

Jered Weaver: 18*** - 27
Zach Grienke: 16*** - 5
Kenley Jensen: 3 - 11
Ryan Dempster: 2 - (5)
Casey Janssen: 6 - 5
Tyler Clippard: 6 - 2
Matt Harrison: 0 - (4)
CC Sabathia: 31 - 18
Clayton Kershaw: 31*** - 38
Anibal Sanchez: 0 - 0

Based on this, I would keep the following

1. Zobrist
2. Mauer
3. Jennings
4. Gordon
5. Heyward
6. Weaver
7. Kershaw
8. Jansen

This would give you position flexibility with Zobrist, but also give you a solid SS option. If you take a flier on a young SS at MI, and he pans out, you have options of players to move and shift Zobrist into that vacancy. You have a stud catcher locked up with great value. Your OF is full of value and provides a nice mix of stats between Jennings, Gordon and Heyward. This will allow you to use the remaining spots to fill in with specific stats to get you to your targets. Then throw in two aces and a power relief arm, all at a nice value, and you're on your way to building a winner in 2013. ;-D ;-D ;-D

This is what I would keep or who you should keep based on some of your thoughts. There are couple of guys who have pretty good value that you would be losing out on but this group has a lot of value and a lot of growth as well. Hosmer is the biggest question mark but if you want him then keep him. While his value will take a hit, I don't think it takes much of one and you could end up missing out on him.
