Typical 5x5 with C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, 3 OF, 2 UTIL, 3 SP, 2RP and 2 P...The following are my possible keepers out of my players, the *** are the ones I'm thinking but I also like Hill and possibly Wiley just to keep a 3rd SP

Bautista ****
M. Cabrera ****
Cano ****
A. Gonzalez ****
Aaron Hill
Mccann
Reddick ****
Reyes ****
Trumbo ****
J. Upton ****
G. Gonzalez ****
Haren ****
Wiley SP Arizona

I'd keep the ones you have marked with the exception of Reddick, I'd keep Hill in his place.

these are my 10; i could see keeping either McCann or Papelbon instead of Reddick before Wiley and I definitely aint keeping Haren; Hill is a keeper at 2B, you wanna hang there

Keep your 9 minus Haren
Hill or Papelbon
I might even keep both, and drop Reddick

I concur with most of what has been said. Definitely keep Aaron Hill, probably over Reddick.

Haren on the other hand, is another question. One factor is that he's back in the NL and won't have to face the DH, on the other hand though, his fast ball velocity was down (fangraphs). Wade Miley seems like a promising pitcher, but with Upton gone, I'm sure some of those wins he had, may be losses (hard to predict). Papelbon would make a solid keeper, as you'd at least have a closer already to start out your draft.

I'm assuming this is a roto league, since you said "Typical 5x5." If it's roto, keep the players you marked down, but substitute Hill and Papelbon in for Reddick and Haren. If H2H, same thing, but just sub Hill for Reddick.

So here are the ones we all agree on

Bautista, Cano, Gonzalez, Hill, Reyes, Trumbo, Upton, Gonzalez (SP)

So I need to pick from the rest for the last 2

Melky Cabrera, Dan Haren, Matt Moore, Reddick, Mccann, Miley

Should I lean on Cabrera and Reddick since I have 2 UTIL spots and 3 OF spots, or go with a OF and P like Haren or Moore

This is the right direction. Haren is almost worthless.

I like Papelbon, but could go Reddick
