In a 10 team yahoo head to head league.

I have the 9th and 11th picks of the draft.

nomar can go from 4 to 14 i really couldn't tell you but on my sheet he should go at 9 10 or 11 so you should take him at 9 then take a solid pitcher at 11.

Personally I stay away from pitchers until later due to increasd injury risk. Recently read an article backing this up.

Here's the exerpt from the article:

"At least 80 percent of your budget goes to hitting
You've probably already heard the old adages that go something like: "Pitching is riskier, so spend more on hitting." How about some numbers instead: Studies have shown that as much as 30 percent or more of the eventual pitching value in a league, is not available on draft day (meaning on Opening Day rosters). Hitting tends to run around 10%. You have a much better chance of finding quality pitching than hitting in the free-agent pool. Thus, spend a lot on hitting on draft day."

So what round should I start drafting pitchers?

its a 10 team league, so more good pitchers will be available later.

22 round draft.

I always like getting the best possible players in the early rounds. Don't upgrade guys too much just because they play SS/2B/3B. If I could get Sheff, Manny, or Bonds and Pedro with 9 and 11 I'd be happy. 9 is a great pick to get in a ten team league.

If Tejada/Renteria/Jeter are still around at the end of the 3rd and beginning of the 4th I'd pick 'em up. For 2B I'd only use a pick here on Boone or Kent. Personally I wouldn't use my 3 or 4 pick on any 3B because there are so many guys who are statistically aren't that far behind the elite guys that you can grab in the later rounds. Lowell and Blalock should be around in the 6th or 7th, Aramis, Glaus and Young can be had later than that. And I picked up Shea Hillenbrand who I think is a pretty solid player in the 12!
