A ton of names have already been thrown out there, so I won't post them again. If I am looking to rebuild, I have four priorities (which other posters have kindly already posted):

1) Secure some elite, established, young talent (preferably at shallow positions)

2) Hitters over Pitchers if all things are equal. They are less likely to get hurt and thus a better investment.

3) Account for age and look to acquire guys before their peak years

4) Try to acquire prospects who have had at least SOME success at the MLB level. Prospects, no matter how highly ranked, are always prospects until they prove otherwise.

This is the type of situation I am referring to. Moustakas has all the hype of being an elite player, but has yet to deliver anything. There is a world of difference between him and a guy like Hosmer. Even if though they were ranked about equal in most top prospect lists before the 2011 season. Guys like Hosmer you pay more for. Guys like Moustakas you try to acquire in bulk, but don't sell the team for.

Pitchers:
1. Kershaw
2. Bumgarner
3. Strasburg
4. Moore
5. Price
6. Pineda


forgot to include Latos. I would slot him in somewhere below Bumgarner and above Pineda. Possibly right after Bum.

I like

Ackley
Goldschmidt
Moustakas
Bumgarner
Starsburg
Harper
Trout
Heyward
J Upton
Price


I saw jesus Montero, but with the Yankees lineup I can't see him play unless he switched to 3B and can field, he is horrible at catcher so Martin wins out there and with A-Rod aging rapidly DH is all but his, so that leaves Montero decaying on the bench or AAA which may hurt his career, unless he gets traded

help with mine?

The yankees have never been much about defense so I would be surprised to see ARod off the hot corner and wouldn't be surprised if Montero plays C at least a couple times a week.

I wouldn't ever want to have to "overpay" for anything. If I can make someone think I am overpaying for talent, I would try and get more back. That being said, I do agree that I drool like the rest of you over most of the names listed.

I don't get the Ackley love, for fantasy purposes, though.
