My strategy was to take the highest rated closer (Nathan) and get one of McCann, Mauer and Furcal in that order. Kazmir was the 2nd highest pitcher I had behind Bonderman available at the draft and wound up with my 3rd pick. I know Sheets/Kazmir come with a ton of risks but they are high K pitchers and combined should give me at least 300 quality innings. I was fortunate to back them up with Haren and Reyes whom I am very high on this year. I wanted Maddux but he was taken right before so I decided to go with a flier in Lincecum.

I wanted to take high K, closer in the wing so grabbed the best two guys in Zumaya and Soriano. I took Billingsley because we have a starts limit and wanted a reliever I can use in the SP slot who can give me quality innings (hopefully). If not, I am following the progress of Villanueva.

I went based on value for hitters, I thought McCann (stud extra keeper), Lugo (leading off for Bos), Weeks (potential #2 2B and a keeper), Taveras and Hunter were all pretty decent picks based on where I've seen them go. I took Chris Young as my rookie/lottery keeper since Gordon went 2 1/2 rounds prior to that pick. I needed an OF also.

I'm on the Corey Hart bandwagon this year as well as Upton. Upton should qualify at multiple positions this year and provide some speed and he was also a lottery pick if he breaks out. Wigginton is strictly a backup who can play multiple positions, in the middle of a lineup and provide some power.
