Unfortunately I had no internet access for the first 10 mins of the draft, which accounted for roughly the first two rounds. I had the #6 pick overall, and the autopick option picked Grady Sizemore first, then Alfonso Soriano in the second rd...So i finally get the internet to work, and I had less than one minute to make my pick...Since I already had two OF's, I was at a dilemma...couldn't figure out if I should take the last above avg 3B in Aramis Ramirez, or the best player available in Matt Holliday...due to having too many OF's already, I ended up taking Aramis, however, I am starting to regret it...the problem is the next best 3B would have been Mr drafted-way-too-early Chris Davis (taken in the 6th rd), then Ryan Zimmerman (taken in the 7th) (blah), none of which are worthy of their draft positions.
What would you have done if in my position?
PS this is a 12 team 6x6 roto which includes (OPS and QS)
This is how it went in the first 5 rounds: (My picks in bold)

Magglio Ordóñez 8. Joe Nathan 9. Roy Oswalt 10. Cliff Lee 11. Shane Victorino 12. Francisco Liriano
I probably would have taken Holliday but that doesn't mean it is the right thing. Your team looks just fine and if you are more comfortable with A-Ram then I'd say it was the right move. If I don't get Wright in the 1st round I've been ending up with Atkins a lot in my mocks.

Analysis: Definitely a reach on Uggla but since it's an OPS league, I felt comfortable taking him there. The next two 2B baseman to be drafted were Cano, who's not bad and Figgins, an OPS killer. Both of my utility spots are taken by below avg players, but definitely working on trades and keeping my eye on the WW for early picks, so that I can drop T-Hafner, Giambi, and Coco depending how hot/cold they start off the season.
