Been in this league a long time. We finally decided to a complete redraft and the plan is for each team to designate 5 keepers at the end of each season and then redraft every 3 seasons.

It's a head to head league with 10 teams. Top 6 teams make the playoffs. I'm currently in 7th place and feel that even if I made the playoffs there's no chance to really make a run to the championship with this group. So I'm trying to lay the foundation for future years. Which I thought I would be in good shape but now Sizemore may be screwed, as well as Beltran. How do I pick 5 keepers from these guys. Any good idea for guys I could package in a trade to try and lure a good keeper away from another team? Any help is most appreciated!

Here's my team...

Mike Napoli
Joey Votto
Dan Uggla
Scott Rolen
J.J. Hardy
Grady Sizemore
Matt Kemp
Adam Lind
Russell Branyan
Ryan Franklin
Tim Lincecum
Roy Oswalt
Hiroki Kuroda
Randy Wolf
Francisco Rodriguez
Jonathan Broxton
Francisco Cordero
Javier Vazquez
Trevor Hoffman
Kevin Millwood
Brad Bergesen
Chad Gaudin
Carlos Beltran

Well first off who do you think you would keep right now? Lincecum and K-Rod i assume are 2 of your keepers.

I debated posting what I thought vs. allowing the forum members to attack it with a clean slate.

Lincecum is a no-brainer. So that's 1. I guess K-rod, although it's pretty rare that a closer gets kept in our league and I've done that in the past and not really been too happy about it. I feel it's kind of like paying $20 for a $12 salad.

So until the microfracture and elbow-itis news of the last couple of days Beltran and Sizemore were sure things to be kept men. Now I'm wondering though. Should I try and ship Sizemore to someone else in the league with another one of my decent players for a single solid keeper? Maybe someone that is struggling a little bit this year but should pull out of it and has a track record of success that would bode well for next season. I feel like it will be impossible to trade Beltran right now for value so I guess I'll hang on to his corpse.

After that all I've got left is Kemp, Hardy, Votto, maybe Lind, maybe Uggla if he cranks it up. This team's a mess but any help would be great. I guess I should plan on keeping K-Rod since I don't really have any better options... Let me know what you think...

You have decent options. I'd hold Sizemore, Lincecum, Votto, Uggla and Kemp.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
