Fan Vs. Fantasy Dilemma

I know this post isn't strictly Cardinals related but it's my fandom that is giving me pause about the whole thing so please see it through. If it's inappropriate for a FanPost let me know and I'll happily delete it.

I thought I'd come here with this scenario since there are some of the more educated fans here as well as Cardinals' fanatics who I hope will understand my conundrum.

I need help determining keepers for Gashouse Gang league this year.

Hitters:

Pedro Alvarez
Adrian Beltre
Everth Cabrera
Allen Craig
Alex Gordon
Garrett Jones
Matt Kemp
Ian Kinsler
Yadier Molina
Kendrys Morales
Wilin Rosario
Nick Swisher
Mike Trout

PItchers:


Homer Bailey
Gavin Floyd
A.J. Griffin
Cole Hamels
Kenley Jansen
Craig Kimbrel
Kyle Lohse
Kris Medlen
Jonathan Papelbon
David Price
Junichi Tazawa
Barry Zito

Mike Trout and Matt Kemp are givens. We keep five total. It's certainly a case of too many good players unfortunately.

My gut says to keep Craig Kimbrel, David Price, and Yadier Molina as my other three.

Kris Medlen is tempting as are Cole Hamels, Allen Craig, Adrian Beltre, and Ian Kinsler.

Never been in a keeper league where my problem was too much talent but it's a horrible place for a fan to be.

Any thoughts?
