Miguel Cabrera
Carlos Gonzalez
Jose Bautista
Ben Zobrist
Jason Kipnis

Top 3 are locks, other options for the last two spots are Wieters, Rizzo, Kipnis. I'm not keeping a pitcher with only 5 keepers unless it's Stras/Kershaw/Felix/Verlander/Price. In a 12 team 1 catcher league I'm probably not keeping a non-Posey catcher, as well. Zobrist with SS eligibility is huge, so for me it's between Jennings/Rizzo/Kipnis for the last spot. Pretty close, and you could make an argument for any of the three. I chose Kipnis because you're already keeping 2 OF and 2B is shallow.

I agree also. 2b and SS are both hard to fill and you have quality guys you can keep so you don't have to draft for them positions so taking Zobrist and Kipnis as you last 2 seem like a very wise decision.
