Yeah he's way too overvalued, and I think it's because several mock draft sites took a look at his #s last year and placed him among and ahead of some much, much better pitchers. I'd bet a couple bits that he finishes as the third best White Sox starter this year.
As for the original question, yeah 6 is a good spot. You can almost certainly do something like 6. C. Zambrano / 7. Roy Oswalt 8. Felix/DiceK, etc. Those players could even go later in fact.
Value's certainly the most important component of drafting, but claiming it's pretty much the
way to draft may be ignoring some points. Depending on how often and easily people trade in your league, for instance, can make a big difference. I like to grab great values because I know that they will probably turn me an overall profit in a trade (i.e., I'll draft a guy that I probably DON'T want on my team, knowing I'll trade him for someone I missed but DO want on my team). But, if trading is not too frequent in your league, using strategies like "avoid pitching until round 6" could be more important.
