Salcedo was taken just before me, so I went with Matzek.

Last pick is coming up....thinking of the following...

Christian Colon
Josh Sale
Hak Ju Lee
Deck Mcguire
Delino DeShields

I like Colon best as a prospect but I'm not sure if he'll ever be better than a decent 2Bman in fantasy. And that doesn't really interest me in a 10 team league. So I'll go for the HR with Sale. He's got upside but also a lot of risk.

Yup, both Vitek and Santana are available. Doing some reading on them now. I think it would be between Sale and Santana at this point.

Santana has tools galore and major potential while even having some similarities to Giancarlo Cruz (aka Michael Stanton). Vitek is the heir apparent to the Red Sox 3B, is above average at everything, and reminds many of a bigger Michael Young offensively. While I like Sale, I think he lacks the ideal frame, 6'0/6'1 200/215 lbs, that you usually see in a star MLB outfielder unless he grows some, which is somewhat possible. Many compare Sale to Travis Snider, who we have yet to see at his peak.
