I personally think it's too early for Lopez.
You've got some great SP already, but you could look to Peavy, Beckett, Kershaw, Cain, Vazquez OFs I can think of include Abreu, N.Cruz, Span, Victorino, Choo. Might not be a bad time to think about Beltran (if you have a DL spot).
I agree that you've got to start looking at your MI and 3B, but I'd still be picking the best player available right now. Although his average hurts a bit, I'd take Uggla over Lopez and hope to balance with a high AVG OF. You could also wait a few rounds and try to pick up Asrubal Cabrera.
Since you could use some speed, I'd look to one of the speedy OF.

Quentin and Bartlett were the two guys I was most considering. It's too early for Bartlett (esp since I know most of these guys don't think he's for real). I didn't think I needed that #3 OF this early, esp one with risk attached. I think he'll bounce back. He is not a .240 hitter, I can see him returning back to .285 for and gaining his power stroke back. I went ahead and drafted Quentin. Kershaw went just before my pick, I actually thought he's fall another round.
I owned Bartlet the season before he broke out in a 20 teamer. He did alright for me as a back up and I actually predicted his big breakout season and kept him on my roster the next year. I just don't think he's a fluke. I missed him in the draft. My pick's coming up again soon. I've updated the first post and was just about to start going through my rankings to find my next pick. Feel free to make suggestions again.
