General Keeper League Strategy Question

Hey y'all, we're thinking about switching a league over from re-draft to keeper this offseason, so I was wondering what kind of things I needed to think about.  It looks like we'll keep just 3-4 guys, and redraft the rest.  No minor league rosters yet, although maybe that's coming down the road.

I remember reading somewhere not to overvalue closers in a keeper league, but do people have any other advice?  Should I load up on speed, power, tricky positions like SS, C, etc., or is it just best player available?  What about starting pitching?  Do people generally look 1-2 years out for their keepers (so you'd be OK with a 30/31-yr old) or is it better to focus on 25/27-yr olds to get their full peaks for 5-7 years?

I'm sure there's a lot of factors that go into this, and people probably will have different opinions on a lot of it, but hopefully this thread can begin a discussion on general keeper strategy.

Appreciate any insight!

P.S.  Normal 5x5, all MLB.
