I would go with Cantu or Russ Martin, both young guys that can build off of last year's numbers.

Cantu over Kinsler? I am struggling with that one a bit. Cantu put up great #s in 2005, but I don't know if he can do it again.

SD,
Being that I'm in your league I would strongly suggest that you add a veteran presence to your hitter in Julio Lugo. He will provide a steadying influence on your youngsters.
Having fun? I'm looking forward to my next pick but haven't narrowed it down much. Hawpe, Burrell, Gagne, Valverde, Millwood, Snell... it's pretty much a roll of the dice at this point.

I am having a blast so far! Unfortunately, Lugo went with pick #120 to Haggis. I agree about things being a "roll of the dice" right now, too. Sadly, someone rolled their dice the same way I was planning to and took Kinsler. Oh well.

If I were you I would just take the best player available regardless of position. Concentrate less on filling positions and more on snatching up talent. Maybe there is a 1B, SS or 3B available you can always use a Util.

That is good advice Cow; I looked at a couple players that I may have used to plug into a UTIL spot, but I wasn't real excited about any of them at this point in the draft. As you can see below, I went with Eric Gagne. It is a huge risk, but something feels right about this guy to me this year. He WANTS to succeed, and I believe that he will. Where should I go next?

So you took Gagne? Where should you go next you say? Well seeing as how you took Gagne I would say you should go to church and say your prayers.

What do you mean about Erik Bedard? I don't understand that comment. Please clarify. Also, here is my updated team through Round 11. I just added Pierzynski. Last round I took Chuck James.
