Bad luck to lose Jeter in the first game
I always prefer to select hitting over pitching in early rounds becasue it seems more consistant, so our stragies are different. I would trade for a hitter, but only if a good one comes along. There is always a person in our league who gives up on a perenial superstar who is in a slump. I do not know if you have anyone like this, but you never know. You may be able to trade and get a good deal on a slumping superstar that you think will get hot.
