If it suits your style, I like the middle picks. Anything around 6 allows you to get a top tier guy and still have a good shot at some solid names on the way back (Tex, Carlos Lee, Peavy etc). Although, there is something to be said for the book-end picks. I always love to get back-to-back picks and take 2 catchers, 2 closers, 2 starters etc in one go. It can sometimes start a run and get other owners off their game. Otherwise, it's a nice way to do some "one stop shopping"
