I'm currently sitting comfortably in 1st place in my keeper league with a stupidly good team (everything's just sort of fallen into place this season). It's a points league on a pretty standard format: Total bases worth 1-4 points, BB 1 point, K -1 point (reverse the previous two for pitchers), etc. We only carry 7 keepers forward into 2010 and right now I'm sitting on:

Hanley
Morneau
Kinsler
A Gon
Votto
Holliday
Josh Johnson
Wainwright
Broxton
Bell
Choo
Beckham

The top 5 are pretty much set (through Votto), but I'm really not sure what to make of the rest of that group. My best bet is probably to offer 2 or 3 for 1 deals with the remaining seven players (all of whom are legitimately keepable) to the weaker teams in the league and try to land a couple more real stud keepers to take into 2010. If that doesn't work out, however, who do you like here? Holliday and Wainwright? I dunno. Stupid 7 keeper rule.

I wouldn't deal 2 or 3 guys, I'd make sure I won this season.

Holliday over Wainwright

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.

Sorry, I meant to preface that statement with "in the offseason...". I have no intention of hurting myself this year, and in fact my team is so young, it's basically impossible for me to deal youth for veterans because all of my young players are already producing. I guess somebody could blow me away with an offer for Gordon Beckham, but fuck, even he's hitting for a .900+ OPS this month and in our points league his doubles and control of the strike zone are money.

This is strictly offseason planning.

Ok, Holliday over Wainwright...but what about that 7th slot? That's kind of a bitch. All of Wainwright, Johnson, Broxton and Choo seem like good candidates. Yeah, I really need to just trade them all for a stud hitter in the offseason.

I'd take Wainwright from that group.

At this point, I'm not entirely sure that my 7th keeper shouldn't be Gordon Beckham.

I would keep Choo over Beckham. I'd also keep Holliday over Beckham.
With that said, you have almost NO pitching, so its upto you to decide whether there are enough freeagent pitchers out there once the draft starts for you to build a championship caliber team.
