Headley, Miller, Jones, Kennedy and Andrus.

I would cut Balentien and Patterson.

If this is only short run and you can't keep them past this year, then sub balentien for Andrus.

Here is a link to my major league roster in the league: http://forums.rotoworld.com/index.php?showtopic=29589

The league is a keeper league that eventually will turn into a dynasty league several years from now. So, I can keep them as long as I want too but we can only keep 5 minor leaguers going into next season.

Then I would say my original five. I dont see Balentien or Patterson having the upside of the other five.

I'd say Headley, Miller, Jones, and Kennedy all for sure. Balentien will have a much quicker impact than Andrus. Balentien might not start out with a starting gig next year but he should finish with one. Andrus is 2 - 3 years away, he's very young and very raw. Patterson is a tough cut too at 2B because he had such a good year at triple A. But he's got a lot of competition to beat out if he is going to play every day.

I would drop the two outfielders.

I think Wlad is a 20 to 25 HR guy with a ton of strikeouts and crappy batting average.

I am not high on Jones as his walk to strikeout ratio has always been terrible. He has struck out over 30% of his big league at bats and walked 4% of the time. He is the next Mike Kelly. Never heard of him. He was a bust with tools that couldn't make contact either. He also struck out 25% of the time in the minors and his stats were inflated because of the joke of the hitters league he was in.

I also think OF are much easier to get in most leagues. I think this is a no brainer.
