No way i trade Correa
You only keep 6, so getting 2 back, just clogs things up.

I keep Correa. If anything, I would look to trade Harper in a deal simply because having him at $45 and Kershaw at $43 is eating almost 40% of your salary. That said, you would have to get back a top player at a discount to even consider dealing Harper.

This is true about the salary but those players will be going for that in the draft and chances are hes going to want them on his team. The way I look at is bite the bullet now and then you don't have to worry about missing them at the draft. yes there will be bargains but the good players like harper and Kershaw are expensive because they help your team. You'll need at least one stud pitcher and a 2-3 stud hitters. You have them .
Yes they are pricey but you could miss either or by 1.00 at the draft. Its not always about having the most money . Others will have a boat load of money as well and looking to get the same players. You have good cheaper players to help offset Harper and Kershaw. Hoskins and Shaw are great values . So is Santana .
I keep
Harper
Kershaw
Correa
Shaw
Hoskins
Santana ( but wait to see how things play out with the Brewers.)

Thank you... that is sort of what I was considering... keeping Harper AND Kershaw for the reason you stated. They are going to go that high anyhow in auction. But, that would put me at $123 in keepers (harper, kershaw, correa, hoskins, shaw, Santana)... which has some risk with harper and kershaws injury history.

Was thinking that swapping sanchez 10 for correa 20 would save me $10 and still have a stud player at a shallow position. And Im high on Devers. But see now that he could be a wash with Shaw.

I also like David Price at $5 as I can see him going for $24 in our auction

OK...follow up on who I should keep... with the projected values from my draft software in parenthesis. Values are based on our league settings. Granted, final prices will ultimately be based on our league. Who would you keep?

OF Harper $45 ($36)
SP Kershaw $43 ($43)
SS Correa $20 ($25)
1B/OF Hoskins $5 ($18)
1B Bell $5 ($12)
3B Shaw $5 ($9)
OF Santana $5 ($4 - dropped considerably after trade, but could go back up if dealt)
2B Taylor $5 ($8)
SP Price $5 ($14)

For reference... the two guys I could have traded for:
C Sanchez $10 ($29)
3B Devers $5 ($12)
