Many have questioned it, but I know there are others who still take SPs early and often. I have never drafted a starter before the fifth round. My mock a couple of days back had the choice of Dunn or Halladay, while I gave Halladay a very long look my 5-day-to-1-day strategy still convinced me to take Dunn (Third Round).
Please enlighten/convince me as to why the strategy of taking pitchers early is backed by some FBB players. I would love to debate it, thanks.

funny thing is I don't ver go into a draft saying that I am not going to do something. I just grab value and MAKE MYSELF bump up starters a few slots because I know I am inheirantly biased against them. It just so happens that they always go higher than I am willing to take them so I stick with the mid-round Carpenters, Sabathias, Capuanos, and such.
I really can see the value of having a 250k pitcher and may end up with Randy if he falls this year, but when you draft for value, as I believe everyone should, it's difficult to go early on starters when others tend to go after them with aggression.
