Your team is sick. You need a 2b and a top shelf badly.
2B Dan Uggla or Ben Zobrist
RP Craig Kimbrel

Tough to pass on some of those options though, but you have enough OF and SP is damn loaded also. If you want to have an illegal pitching staff select Darvish and don't think about pitching until the very end of your draft (last round upside flier to complete your staff)

But with your insane team and seeing as how there are several top flight arms I would pass on taking a pitcher here. You have two glaring holes closer and RP. Lucky for you there are two quality 2b (uggla and zobrist available)

Me personally if Zobrist is available take him you need some speed nad he'll provide pop and speed in a combo for you. You can't afford to have ANY holes on your team in such a shallow league. You can find some cheap speed later in the draft for sure.

Also don't like relying solely on Minor and you might also need a SS too but you can worry about that later.
