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...

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.
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?
