Take the @#$! pitcher when you see fit. It's called improvising.

If a stud pitcher falls further than he should, ie: Prior near the end of the 1st, I'll take him, but generally the first 3 rounds I get SS, 3B, 2B in no particular order, unless there is somebody who slips too far. Filling out the rest of the positions is much easier.

8-o


I've been having good luck with this strategy in mock drafts this year. I'm pretty sure i'll go with it this season.

Try it...you might like it ;-D

I don't pigeon hole myself into drafting any certain kind of player in any round. Whenever there is good value I will draft a player at that given position. It is impossible to predict beforehand, as drafts are dynamic events.
