I agree with your pitching choices. Verlander and Greinke are obviously the guys to keep out of that group.

There are up to 4 others that I want to at least bring attention to.

Carlos Marmol
Stephen Drew
Rickie Weeks
Delmon Young

You can add one more, AND I think you should disregard Bourn, because a steal specialist is not worth keeping (unless he hits for average, or scores a lot of runs, or does anything else basically--which Bourn doesn't do).

So that means you can add 2 more out of the 4 I listed.

It's up to you. I would add Marmol and either Weeks or Young. Weeks had a breakout year last year and got an extension--will he settle now? Delmon Young has been hyped forever, and we finally started seeing it last year--he's still very young, and I think what he did last year is his floor for this year. I think 30 HR is completely achievable for Delmon, and we might see a few more steals--not to mention his AVG is not a liability like Weeks. I'd go Young personally. But this is your decision.
