my league starts 15 players
I have my SS and 1 of 3 outfielders.
Do I chose a SP next?
SP's are thinning out quick...
other options would be Sexson, Kent, V.Wells, Giambi,B.Giles

I think I need Vasquez's K's but I don't know if 3rd round could still be early to pick SP?

thanks

Depends on your league format. It's certainly not too early to grab an ace starter, but the hitters available are also very tempting in round 3...

I myself usually build my team around pitching. So if it were me I would look for the ace....Wood looks good there ;-D

i'd say definitely get some SP. It's like the 5th round. you need to round up some aces.

Just off the list of hitters you provided, I'd be looking at hitters. Too many of them have slipped.

Out of the players you listed I would get Kent "solid player at a very shallow posistion" or Wells who should put up very solid numbers again this year.

Thanks for all the advice, guys.

1 Nomar SS
2 Sheff OF
3.Vasquez SP
4.Kent 2B
5.Pierre OF
6.?

Is Mariano Rivera a good next pick do you think?

Hard to say without seeing your other options. He is a very solid closer but there might be better available.
