I really see it as a firm 8. The first 8 picks were the exact 8 I would have thought, and I wouldn't have changed any of them. There are simply too many issues with guys like Bautista, Cargo, and the next few guys to be safe enough as the top 8. Kemp/Trout are really the only two with any real risk, and they are also the two guys that could be far and away the no. 1 player, as they both have proven, thus making them worth the risk. The other six guys all are so solid, even in down times like Pujols, that they are perfect for early round 1 picks.
Goldy is King.
