Then RP maybe Francisco for some Saves

A quick inventory of your team and your hitters look good. Nice mix of speed and power. (I'd target Mayberry, but you might be able to pick him later.

You've got some strong strikeout pitchers, with Haren as a strong WHIP anchor.

Your glaring hole is saves and holds. 15 rounds in (approx. 300 players in, and you have Farnsworth. I see. A big red flag and posibbly 1s under your saves and holds if you don't act now. Target mid-relievers who could unseat the closer.
Jesse Crain pops out. Melancon is another. It just looks ugly, and you might have better options not shown (I hope so for your sake).

SP is deep deep deep. Look at the players still available:
Liriano
Lewis
Bucholtz
Wandy

These players are two years removed from top 40 production. You'll have plenty of options later.
Go RP...

FYI, I retread my post. I don't mean to suggest Melancon would unseat Papelbon, but from a skill set and roster spot, he could get a good number of holds.

Papelbon is on the Phillies now :-)

I agree with Giantsfan. Baker has some good upside if he can stay healthy. Francisco is the closer with no real competition behind him, and Melky is a decent OF. Though in place of Melky, I could see an argument for Quentin and the upside in Bourgeious.

Francisco isn't the closer, Santos is.

I still like Quentin some.
Garcia for SP.
Drew for MI.

Well Francisco just got taken ahead of me. The other RP available are:

Crain
Capps
Perkins
Pestano
Uhehar
Gregg
Peralta
Alburquerqe
Melancon
Parnell
lyon
Salas
David Hernandez
Batardo

Should I defintitely go with a RP with my next pick and who should I take? Maybe I should start focusing on Holds now since all the saves guys are pretty much gone? And still go SP, Melky or OF, or MI with next two picks?

Thanks

He must have not realized he went to the Mets...I know I forgot or missed it. I also wonder if Parnell will get another chance or not, but it would probably take a Francisco screwup to manage that.
