In an AL-Only Auction league (a $ 260 salary cap, 2 C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 5 OF, DH / 9 P) . Over the next two weeks, I need to trim my roster down to 7 keepers.

S. Perez $ 2*
E. Hosmer $ 8*
B. Lawrie $ 8
S. Drew $ 4
M. Trout $ 8
D. Jennings $ 8*
D. Viciedo $ 8*
L. Cain $ 7*
N. McLouth $ 2
C. Tillman $ 8
E. Ramirez $ 2
A. Reed $ 3*
J. McGee $ 1

I have the option to resign the * players, all going into the final year of their contracts, at $ 5 per extra year. The remaining players would not need to be resigned until next year. Also, I also have Romine (NYY), Olt (TEX), Green (OAK), Hicks (MIN), Myers (TB), and Archer (TB) in the minors whom will be packaged in a trade and/or kept, and will not count against the 7.

I've been leaning towards keeping Perez (+1), Hosmer (+2), Lawrie, Drew, Trout, Cain (+1), and Reed (+1), and I would like to trade any remaing players to upgrade a keeper and/or upgrade a minor league draft pick. I'm wondering who should be untouchable (Lawrie? Trout? Myers?) and who may be hyped/overvalued and could be shopped.

Any advice?

I would keep Jennings over Cain but other than that I think you have the right group. I don't love keeping Reed but that is a solid price for a solid closer and you really don't have a better option.

As for trades, no one is untradeable although Trout is as close as you get to that. But if someone wants to over pay for certain player than take the deal. I think Myers might be over-valued right now and could be interesting to see what you can get for him. Might be able to move him with another guy to upgrade a keeper.
