The three I bolded are guys you could probably sleep on who I like to have solid years. I would take Beltran, because it looks like you need a RF if you are going to take a batter--and he is head and shoulders above the others IMO--but you should look to taking pitching the next round if not now.

help?

No Hunter, he will do nothing close to last yr, it was a fluke.

You need to go SP and should have before the 2nd and 3rd closer. So, I do like Estrada, but wait a round, find the best SP you can at this point and go SP's in the next 2 rounds.

A little help

I like Estrada/McCarthy, but I think you could grab them in the following two rounds. I would take BJ Upton this round. He has good speed/power and is moving into a great lineup.

Estrada has a good shot at big K's, but he may not have great numbers otherwise. McCarthy isn't big on K's and carries injury risk but he's going to do well in other categories. I'd roll the dice with McCarthy and hope he stays healthy.
