Well Desmond Jennings is an obvious one for me, picking the 2nd is a bit harder. Conger is nice and I like him, but the attrition rate of catcher is pretty poor. Many things can happen and focusing more on defense can stall their offensive production in the future, also that injury makes me wonder as he is a switch hitter and throws with his right. If you want more of a sure thing from the offensive side, Beau Mills would be my recomendation as I'm not sold on Jackson's half season power from last year. If you would like to grab an arm, it's up to Anderson/Guerra. Guerra has more potential upside possibly a #2/3, while Anderson is more a safer bet due to his control and polish .... though I wonder how he will do at higher levels (ie Petit). I usually go more with upside and take risks, so I'd lean towards Guerra.

Thanks a ton guys. I took Mills with my second to last pick. I didn't love the pick, as I have Fielder on my major league roster for years to come, along with Marrero and Vitters on my minor league roster. But because the league is so strongly based in power and OPS, I pulled the trigger. With my last pick, I almost went with Conger just because I'd love to finally have a top catcher in the league, but his injury scared me away. So I went with Desmond Jennings. Had a brutal time with that pick, but now that it's done I am pretty happy with it. Thanks. ;-D
