Well, there is the link at the top left marked "Cheat Sheet." However, fantasy baseball is different than fantasy football. Most people draft the best player available for their first 10 picks or so, and then start filling out their positions. There is no position like Running Back that you have to take first in a draft. The infield positions (2b, SS, 3b, C) have the smallest talent pool, so those are the ones I'd make sure were filled by round 15. Otherwise, you're going to have to do some serious trading to fill those holes. Most stud relief pitchers start to go around the 4th round in a mixed league draft, (excluding Gagne or Wagner, who will probably go earlier). If you want to grab a stud at that position, do it by round 6 or the pickings will be slim.
