Always check the injury record of any player before you pick him up but also take note of the length of time that a pitcher will stay on the DL compared to a position player. Last year I had Gagne and you couldn't give me that bum in the final round ever again.

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.
