I want advice on which players to cut from the team below before our auction draft. I want to go into auction with about $110-120 out of $260 to buy more SP, a 3B, and hopefully another big bat.

Texiera ($29): I think I have too much money invested in him and I want to free it up. I was able to trade for Goldschmidt so my 1b is taken care of at a low price. I've been shopping Tex around and no one is interested in him at his current salary.

Reyes ($41): This is the last year I can keep Reyes(without extending him) and he's too expensive, but shortstop looks like a wasteland this year. The two best free agent shortstops to bid on will be Han Ram and Andrus. It would free up a lot of money but Reyes isn't really replaceable.

Corey Hart ($10): Same contract situation as Reyes. I've been happy with him at this price but if he's going to miss a month or more, I think I'd rather have the money to reinvest. This is the one I'm really on the fence about.

Tim Hudson ($7): a reliable source of wins and non K ratios but I think I overpaid for him. If I tossed him back this year I can probably resign him for $3-4.

Others I'm cutting that might still have value: Alfonso Soriano, Kendrick, Chris Perez.

Minor Leaguers I'm cutting: Banuelos, Gary Brown

Simplified explanation of our keeper rules: We can keep any player we want at auction price for two years, then extend them for one year at the same salary, two more years at salary +$10, or three years at salary +$15. No one can keep a player for more than five years in a row.

We also have a separate snake draft to fill five minor league spots. Minor leaguers cost zero. When you promote them, their salary is $3 and the clock starts ticking.

Cut Tex, Hudson and Hart. I don't see a reason to keep any of these guys. You can get them back at similar or better values than what they would cost to keep.

Reyes seems expensive but you know your league so if you think he will command this kind of money at auction and there isn't a better/cheaper option at auction then keep him. Personally I would probably roll the dice and cut him. $41 is a lot of money for a guy who has a spotty health history.

I started sending out Reyes trade feelers and got offered a $19 Aramis Ramirez who I could keep for another year after this one. The guy also has a $21 Price in his last season. Do you think I can get them both?

BTW, the Reyes contract is left over from my predecessor. The three most expensive guys in last year's auction were Kemp for $49, Pujols for $48, and Halladay for $46. I'm willing to spend up to $50 for Kershaw, since pitching is important in my league and rules have been instituted to drastically curb streaming.
