I say Dickey + Santana... You would have 3 solid stud SP's.

Also I say santana because it may be difficult to find a stud Catcher in the draft. You know the top 3-5 catchers will likely be kept.

for me it would be carlos and paps.That is one hell of an offence, especially in a 12 teamer, and those 2 starters u have wow...good luck to the rest of your league mates....lol... ;-D
And I say paps only because u HAVE to start 3 RP'S in your active lineup.

I would actually go Santana and Scherzer. You have a solid foundation at SP already, and Scherzer offers more upside than Dickey. Take a look at Scherzer as the year progressed, and the K's you would get from Verlander, Stras and Scherzer combined? Good luck rest of league.

Also for reference, I think Adrian Gonzalez is better suited for you in the IF position than OF, but that's just me :) Semantics for now.

I believe its too difficult to take Scherzer over DIckey just because of what he did last year and the team he is on now. He will have another good year. Scherzer is always ranked high begin of the season but never gets to where people thing he shuld be.

And in simulated action so far he's looking very tough again so that helps.

I'd go with Dickey and Santana.

Draft closers early and often. I'd probably take 2 closers with your top 3 picks. And the other pick I'd probably spend on the best available SP. Then with the next pick I'd take a value OF with speed like a Gardner/Aoki or someone like that.
