Zach,

When thinking about keepers how much do speed specialists play into your decision?

For example : would you keep both Dee Gordon and Billy Hamilton to ensure that category next year or would you go for these guys?

Troy Tulowitzki
Buster Posey
Miguel Cabrerra
Nolan Arenado
Andrew McCutchen
Mike Trout
Carlos Gonzalez
Jose Abreu

My best Pitchers are Kluber and Carrasco so I think my best bet is keep all hitters. We keep 5. Which 5 would you keep at this point?

I also have lorenzo Cain if that makes a difference

That’s such a dominant keeper list that I’d forget about the speed specialists. Choosing five is extremely tough. I’d go Trout, McCutchen, Abreu, Arenado and Posey. Seems crazy that I’m leaving out Tulo and Miggy!
