I like to draft starters when I do not like any of the bats available. Round 5-6 are like this in my opinion this year. When my best bat options are Pena, Young, Mauer, Kinsler, Sheffield, Chipper, etc, I like to take a ace like Lackey. I'm not saying these bats are bad, but I just think the team will benefit more from the ace at that point than taking, for instance, Peavy over Sizemore in the second.
