In that case, I'd probably wait until there are no other tier 1 players left, then consider taking a catcher. The original article says always take the highest tier available. I only sometimes follow that advice. If there's only one 2nd tier 2B available but 3 1st tier C, I'll probably take the 2B, but it depends.

I agree 100%. I'm all about cheat sheets... having a solid top200 list and a top15 or so at each position.

And when it comes to bats vs arms, I usually end up with bats my first couple rounds, and stud arms somewhere in rounds 3,4, or 5. All depends on the flow of the draft....

I try to draft a balanced team, but I try to be very flexible when need be. I usually favor hitting slightly over pitrching. I also usually wait to draft a catcher. I figure I can nab a guy like Lecroy or Phillips in rounds 15 and on.
