I would target those 2 for sure, but not knowing what SP's are available it's tough to answer your question. You only have Price, Santana and Shields, so I would guess you need quite few more SP's in order to compete. Perhaps you can wait a round or two to grab Guerra and Reed?

I have PRice, Santana, Shields, BEachy so far. I could pick a guy in a Scott Baker range or go with Reed or Guerra. What do you think?

Addison Reed, Javy Guerra, or a SP for my next pick? My last two picks have been Ventere and Johnson. Any help is appreciated.

Guerra then Reed over a Baker type SP given you pretty fair depth thus far. Also, I wouldn't make a trade for Thornton b/c his job isn't that stable. I would think about trading for Soria after the draft.
