But he already has A-Rod, so he could draft the best available player without having to worry about position scarcity.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

True but I forgot to expand on that. He can always either wait the 15 games or get someone later like Cabrera, play him at 3B for a while, and then put him in the OF when A-Rod is eligible at 3B.

I'd grab Renteria and Posada if both of them make it to you. :-)

Do you have big money riding on this or something?

Not necessarily big money, just ultra-competitve. What's the use of playing if you don't want to win?

I just like getting as much advice as possible, never hurts to get different opinions.

I don't think there's one obvious solution here; several options seem pretty equal here. I'd most likely take the Renteria route rather than picking Chavez, but both are great options. The tricky part is the second player. Ordinarily, I'd go with a catcher here, but since you're going into the season with an edge on the competition, the safer outfielders are somewhat tempting... Nah, I'd probably still pick up a backstop. But with these options, it's all good. :-)

I'd really want Santana in this situation-he'd be a great keeper. But you shouldn't get him with a 10th or 11th pick, and he's not getting to you at 30. Maybe attempt to trade some draft picks?

Just figured I'd update y'all on how things went. Renteria got snagged at #3 so that changed my strategy but overall I'm pleased. Didn't really reach for anyone and I think I'm pretty steady across the board.

C- Pierzynski
1B- D. Lee
2B- Soriano
SS- A-Rod
3B- D. Young
OF- Beltran
OF- Berkman
OF- Huff
Util.- Kearns
B- Walker
B- Gibbons
B- Dunn
B- Lugo

SP- Prior
SP- Schilling
SP- Wolf
SP- W. Miller
SP- Clement
RP- Dotel
RP- Isringhausen
B- Peavy
B- E. Jackson
B- Sheets
B- F. Cordero

We're only allowed to start 2 RP. Personally the only change I'm thinking of making is picking up another catcher (R. Hernandez, Phillips available) to start over Pierzynski? Walker and Dunn I figure are good high reward guys. They're not going to start over any of my regular OF's and if they perform up to their capabilities they'll be good tradebait. Lugo's getting dropped for D. Jimeniz, wanted a decent middle-infield backup and forgot about Jimeniz.

Overall I think I did pretty well and barring injuries, should have a nice chance of defending my title.
