I mean, what you do in general is probably not take relievers so early (though I wasn't at your draft, so I can't say for sure). Since it's too late to fix that, I recommend hoping that Beltre has a big year again and trade A Ramirez for one of those decent shortstops: Reyes, Jeter, Furcal, or Rollins. If you can't swing that deal, then switch to hoping Giambi has a big year and trade Ortiz for Michael Young or Miguel Tejada (you might even be able to get a little bit more).

Took Gagne 7th round, Turnbow 11th, and Gonzalez 17th. Maybe a bit early but last year I did autodraft and had crap RP's and it seemed to really hamper me.

I know I have alot of OF but it I took Dye, Wilkerson, and Guillen all in the rounds 17-21 where it just seemed to me they were so much better than anyone else available I had to pick them. Maybe some team will get hid bad by injuries and I can trade some of them to upgrade my infield. I think you are right, will try to shop Ortiz. He can get me the best value, and Giambi might be alright at 1st.
