not to mention pedro last year, who went in the first round last year in many drafts, and burned owners with his inconsistency. and rj two years ago. i disagree with shockandawe, in general, hitters are much more predictable and less susceptible to injury then pitchers (unless your name is ken griffey jr.).
if you take two stud pitchers in your first two picks, say you get lucky and land both randy and santana, you basically should have 3-4 pitching categories won, provided rj and santana pitch well. but you had better have alot of sleeper ideas for hitters because you will be fighting for decent position players in the middle and late rounds, not to mention you have to grab some closers along the way. you basically give yourself an uneven team right away. i don't like this strategy myself, but that's just my opinion.
oh and also, i don't see how the top position players are any more unpredictable this year than in years past. so we had a few breakout candidates last year, but you get those every year. and as far as top 50 position players who broke out last year, there are only a few (beltre, jd drew, dunn...?) i don't understand why you see the hitters this year as unpredictable.
