I've always found it easier to find an ace pitcher after round 5 than it is to find a stud hitter after round 5.
I think in general terms I agree but there's just too much risk after the top 7 or 8 hitters to not consider a top arm. I want my round one pick to be as reliable as possible, and I always personally do better when I have a stud or two to anchor my rotation. My original plan was to get a bat then hope a pitcher was available in round two, but after Verlander went before me I didn't feel I had a choice with Kershaw. The other hitters I also debated picking in the 11 spot I feel one of them had a better shot to be there at my turn than Kershaw did. Now if I'm wrong I may start second guessing my pick a little. We'll see!
