Well it depends how much the value of pitchers are in your league. In mine, wins and saves are worth 10 points and 3 points every inning pitched, so pitching is very important in my league. I actually got Gagne, Schilling, and Pedro as my first 3 pick and I'm in first place right now. Only 7 out of the first 24 picks in the first 3 rounds of my league's draft (8 team league) were pitchers and 3 were mine.

I never take a closer before the 4th round.

That's a good point. ;-D

If it's a points league, then check your rules to see who's the most valuable with your pick.

Regular 5x5, then I'd stick with one of the 4 guys I listed. :-)

I wouldn't have grabbed a pitcher in the first round this year, except for Prior....sure glad that pick didn't fall into my lap at this point! ;-D

Arod
Pujols

Toss up: Beltran and Vlad
All about personal feeling, vlad could be better if he's healthy the whole season but he is an injury risk whereas for the most part beltran isn't plus beltran will get like 35hr 40st vlad will get at best 40hr, 35st.

so its all about draft strategy in regular roto or head to head i would take one of these five

IMO, there are no pitchers worth taking in the 1st round.
