The owners in my league that are in favor of a lower number of keepers, their main gripe is "If we keep too many players, the best teams (my team without them saying as much) will have an unfair advantage because they have more to choose from and so their team will be an All-Star team."
I politely remind them that ALL fantasy teams are All-Star teams (more or less) and if it's sustained success they want and longevity, the answer is simple---draft better.
I can, however, see their point and the one thing that does concern me about a large number of keepers is that year in and year out, teams will largely look the same without many changes. I'm in Year 4 right now and to be honest, there are times when I wouldn't mind throwing some guys back and having a different cast of characters each year.

If you have two studs (say Guerrero and Pujols like I do) and are only allowed 3 or 4 keepers. You might have to end up dropping a Jason Bay if you don't want to get rid of your starting pitching of Halladay and Peavy... 6 gives managers to keep their breakout players of which otherwise would be dropped in a league that allows teams to only keep 2-4.
