Teixeira and hope to get one of the other guys on the wrap around. I've seen Howard/Kinsler/Utley/Santana/Rollins all go in the 2nd round but have yet to see Teixeira fall that far.

I'm going Rollins, back to full health I don't see any reason he can't put up numbers just as good as Sizemore at a shallower position.

If Lincecum or Santana are gone by my 2nd pick I'm looking for Utley, Kinsler, or Pedroia.

Just to add additional feedback, that list pretty much defines my 2nd of 2nd round selections so any of them except the pitchers are viable, I just prefer Utley.

Pitching is for suckers though so I would never touch a pitcher before the end of the 2nd round at the absolute earliest.

Good point. With Utley rated 21 on Yahoo there's a half decent chance he'll fall to the 2nd. :-?
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I agree. There tends to be a bunch of studs available in the 4th round to anchor your ERA/WHIP. My first 3 picks are always hitters unless Timmy somehow slips to the 3rd.

Somebody actually picked Rollins?

Yeah, that's pretty surprising. To each his own, I guess...

Utley's gone in the later part of the 2nd round in 2 of my Yahoo drafts :-X

I think it's Utley and it's not even close. He will probably outperform all those guys not even taking into account the position he plays
