I'm building for next year and am looking for some insight into how to value keepers. Here's my list of top 20 keepers for 2010. Curious to see what others are thinking.

1. Pujols
2. Hanley
3. Braun
4. Miggy
5. Kinsler
6. Utley
7. Reyes
8. Lincecum
9. Justin Upton
10. Wright
11. Sizemore
12. Tex
13. Longoria
14. Howard
15. Arod
16. Crawford
17. Fielder
18. Kemp
19. BJ Upton
20. Bay

Looks pretty good, I don't think Bay's a top 20 keeper though.

What about BJ Upton? is he really a top 20 keeper?

Pretty close to it, he's still getting better and capable of 20/40 next year.

maybe there's room for growth, but his walks and power are down from his 2008 #'s which weren't that good to begin with, so it's tough to say he's actually growing. is there really much difference between bossman and chris b. young?

i'd probably go with morneau and reynolds over upton and bay. holliday and adam jones might be in the mix too.

About fifty points in average and 25 steals difference between Krispie and Upton. Morneau's a good call though, he'd be up there probably.

obviously an exaggeration, but not that bad when you consider upton is being considered for the top 20 and young might not crack the top 200. i'd put bj in the 30-40 range.

kinsler is a little high in that list too. top 5 is a stretch.

Maybe a little high now that we see it's absolutely impossible for him to stay healthy.

Grey, you ignored suggestion of mini-donkey as an add (approved morneau). Shouldn't he be top twenty?

Reynolds isn't a top 20 keeper in my mind. Top 30-40 maybe.
