I would much rather draft a pitcher out of those 5 with my first pick of the draft, but should I pass up Votto, VMart or Hill if they slip past the first 4 picks? Also, is Figgins worth drafting above those pitchers since he's going to be playing 2b this year?
If Votto isn't picked, I'd definitely go with him in my UTIL spot. Then I can take my pick of the next tier of SP's amongst Baker, Nolasco, etc... though I have a feeling that Votto will be gone since #2 pick kept 4 SP's and no 1b.
But if comes down to Votto and Gallardo, I'd be hard pressed not to take Gallardo.
I know his sub 3.00 era was nice last year but those 8 wins are not too impressive. I know that you can't project wins and all that, but his inability to go deep into games does effect his win probability.
Gallardo wasn't that great last year either and his walk rate was quite high.
