Ok, I'm just going to first list ALL players that I would like to keep...then I'll cut down to 4 by thinking out loud to myself.
I think those are essentially your 7 most valuable players and keepers. Someone might want to argue David Price, and while I do certainly think he is good, I don't think he'll ever be a fantasy ace (although he is a solid fantasy #2), while the three that I listed all have the potential to be a fantasy ace.
You have some intriguing hitters too like Morse and Ackley, but with only 4 keepers, you can't take a flier on someone like that when you have guys like Tulo/Miggy.
In my mind, Miguel, Tulo, and Justin Upton are the three guaranteed keepers (which I'm sure you've already figured out yourself). It's pretty clear in my mind.
What you have left as realistic and smart options then is a top 5 3B or a stud starting pitcher.
SINCE you already kept 3 bats, I would personally be more inclined to pick a pitcher.
Matt Cain-- 2.91 9-6 117 1.09 .222 (ERA, W/L, Ks, WHIP, BAA)
Ian Kennedy-- 3.22 12-3 127 1.12 .230
Tommy Hanson--3.20 11-6 137 1.12 .210
As you can see, they're very similar in their statistics. I think I might lean towards Hanson the most, because down the line, he'll have the best offense around him. It's your call though.
