Below is my current team. I'm not sure what to draft. I am not up for 4 more picks but then have back to back picks. The value in the guys remaining are definitely hitters. But I would be drafting bench guys so I am contemplating taking 2 pitchers even though I don't know if that is the smart thing to do.

Here are guys currently available (I will keep the list updated as picks are made).

Youk
Gardner
Werth
Lind
Butler
LoMo
Rasmus
Hart
Ethier

Axford
Madson
B. Wilson
Hanrahan
Valverde
Ethier
Morrow
Marmol


10 team, H2H, 5x5 Mixed League
OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
2 UTIL spots, 3 SP, 2 RP and 2 P
Keep 10 MLB and 8 prospects. Lose round that player was drafted in previous draft.
Round drafted x years remaining is in parenthesis. N/A=contract expires after this year
My current projected 10 keepers are in red

C-
1B Fielder (rd 1 x 2 yrs)
2B Phillips (rd 4 x 3 yrs)
3B Lawrie (rd 16 x 3 yrs)
SS Tulowitzki N/A
OF Upton N/A
OF Bautista (rd 17 x 1 yrs)
OF Braun N/A
UT Stubbs (rd 3 x 2 yrs)
UT Reynolds N/A
BN Belt (rd 13 x 4 yrs)

SP Shields (rd 7 x 1 yrs), Sanchez (rd 15 x 2 yrs), Gallardo N/A, Lincecum N/A, Chacin (rd 18 x 2 yrs), F. Hernandez(rd 2 x 3 yrs),
RP

Prospects--Alonso

Youk Axford & Gardner all look great that deep into the draft. Someone will come calling for Youk sooner than later

Thanks for helping me. I'd go Youkilis, too, even though that gives you 4 3B's on your roster. If they all get off to good starts you can probably cash one in for whatever you need. Regardless, he is probably an upgrade on Reynolds or Stubbs in an OBP league. Gardner might be the second choice since you have need for SB's and he helps in OBP, too. If either of those are gone I'd take Butler as a fallback.

There are a lot of RP's you listed so that is why I'd wait and grab two of them the next time your turn comes around.

You need RP and there are few solid ones left. Take them before there is a run and you are left picking through the rubble...Axford, Madson, Hanrahan, Wilson and Valverde are all quality closers. It's tempting to take Youk and Gardy and butler are their too, but when 20 more picks come around there will likely be more quality bats available than closers.
