207th Pick - A.J. Pierzynski - 12th
212th Pick - Jacque Jones - 12th

Some of the guys available are
Javier Vazquez
Derek Lowe
Greg Maddux
Jim Edmonds
Tom Glavine
Nate Robertson
Cliff Lee
Akinori Iwamura
Wes Helms
David DeJesus
Reed Johnson
Craig Monroe
Chris Burke
Johnny Peralta
Daniel Cabrera
Tim Hudson
Reed Johnson
Salamon Toress
Scott Linebrink
Dan Wheeler
Justin Duchscherer
Juan Rincon
Pat Neshek

I really just have to idea where to go with the pick, Taylor Tankersley, who I was aiming for, was just picked so I really don't know what position I should aim for

I am pretty high on Akinori and Wes Helms but I could also secure Hlds with a guy like Justin Duchscherer or maybe get a good utility player like Chris Burke, but I really just don't know

Help is appreciated, thanks

I would go with Cliff Lee. I think this is the year he breaks out.

Those were the 3 guys I was looking at

I like Vazquez slot but I know Cliff Lee is poised to break out but then I don't want to be left with a huge gap at 3rd

I know I probably could get someone like Helms in the 14th but I don't want to take the chance though it would be nice to get another good SP before their talent drops off

I agree, get a 3rd baseman. Also, I don't think Edmonds is done yet. And, if Torres sits around much longer, I'd grab him.
