Me too, I'm keeping Bundy in our league.
I'd probably keep Bundy. Ace material is hard to come by.

So, I'm bumping this because I need opinions again. I made some trades, did some add/drops, and now my roster looks like this:
I can keep ten guys; they come off the front of the draft in rounds 1-10. If I keep less than 10, then I get those picks (so if I keep 8 I get to pick in rds 9 and 10).
To me, I have nine locks: Verlander, Felix, Latos, Rizzo, Zobrist, Tulo, Longo, Trumbo, Holliday. I can't decide if I should keep one of the prospect-y types that I picked up as soon as our commish unlocked add/drops, (which I did mainly so other people couldn't stash them) or leave it at nine and pick up that 10th round pick instead and see if the other owners didn't keep someone really good. VMart would be the other guy I'd maybe consider keeping, but I think I'll be able to draft him.
Taveras Bundy Miller would be my last three guys. That said, your team is so good that you can win now, easily, by keeping MLB'ers instead. Alos, usually those "early" picks you get by not keeping 10 aren't nearly as valuable as a guy you could've kept instead.
Long term view: Taveras, Bundy, Wheeler.
Second half help & long-term mix: Taveras Wheeler Miller (the choice between Wheeler/Bundy/Miller is really close to me, I don't think there's a whole lot of difference between them)
Win Now view: Parker Myers Miller. Miller has a really good shot at winning a starting role this year, and I cannot stress enough how much I think win-now is the right move. Your team is fucking stacked.
Also, I know you didn't ask about this, but if I were you I'd strongly consider keepingTrumbo, or pawning him off to someone else pre-draft. If you're in a roto league, Trumbo's power is a nice thing to have, but in a points league I don't think he's anything special. Last year's first half was likely a mirage, and he struggled mightily in the second half. He's a high-k, low walk, low avg dude who isn't all that great. I count a bunch of guys on your roster I'd rather have
