Who to keep?
Hey guys im in a auction keeper league. Each year we are ablte to keep 6 players, price goes up 5 dollars each season for each player. Looking at my team what players do you think i should keep?
Category:Runs, HR, RBI, Steals, Avg., OPS, and Strikeouts for hitters and Wins, Strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, Saves, Complete Games, and K:BB ratio for pitchers
Miguel Cabrera $45
Troy Tulowitzki $41
Yovani Gallardo $29
James Shields $21
David Price $20
Brandon Morrow $15
Nick Markakis $11
Trevor Cahill $11
Josh Rutledge $10
Todd Frazier $10
Lorenzo Cain $10
Brett Wallace $10
Carlos Ruiz $10
Vinnie Pestano $10
Wilton Lopez $10
Matt Capps $5
Trevor Bauer $1
I was thinking Miggy/Price/Shields/Morrow/Fraizer/Bauer. Also i get to keep Middlebrooks for free next season since he was my minor leaguer. Im not sure about if i should keep tulo or not because from last couple seasons rentry drafts people spend a ton of there auction money. For example pujols was $61 on the free market. It looks like most of my keepers are pitchers i dont no if thats a good thing or not.
I like your choices, but I would spend a little extra and keep Gallardo rather than Morrow.
I agree with my esteemed colleague. Gallardo is about as dependable as they come. Morrow has a huge upside, but he's going to have to produce consistently for a few years before I hop on board.

I could see keeping less than 6 if thats an option; build around your MVP & Cy Young contender and have more $ to spend and keep fewer players.
morrow at $20 is a stretch. if he wasn't so injury prone, sure. but the guy is peanut brittle. how much more will he cost at auction? i'm guessing not much more. and if he does go for lots of $$, then that will give you the opportunity to buy someone else.

or..., somebody in your league must be salivating at the chance to roster Rutledge ( a player you correctly identify as expendable ). perhaps look to package Ruts and one of your 3b ( middlebrooks/ I think Frazier and Wallace are both better bets, going forward ), for a premium , inexpensive, talent.
and yes, drop tulo. you can buy him back for similar $$.
What's your budget?
To be honest, the only one I'd consider keeping is Miggy. The rest I throw back in.
