Kinsler for sure. I hate to keep a catcher in a 10 team that only has one catcher spot. And with your other hitters being so strong, I would keep Haren. Haren is in the 2nd SP tier (after Verlander, Halladay, and Kershaw), but he never seems to be drafted as high as the others (CC, Felix, Lince, Weaver, Greinke, etc) even though Haren as been one of the most consistent guys over the past 5 years. Definitely an undervalued guy IMO.

Thanks for all the advice. Seems like Kinsler for certain, and then a choice between Santana, Jennings and Haren.

reason why Haren, seemed undervalued was that he would be dominate in the first half and fall completly off in the second half, which skew his splits and degrades his numbers. Though now he has seemed to figure it out.

I think you still have to go with Santana (and Kinsler). He's an elite talent and the pool of pitching should be deep in your draft.
