Normally, I like to take one SP in round 3, 4, or 5 - to be the ace of my staff. The rest of my first 5 picks are always hitters. In the 6th round, I might take a closer, depending on who's left, and how I feel about the top closer available.
My last draft that I did about an hour ago, I wound up with SP's in the first 2 rounds - I couldn't help it. With the 6th pick, Santana was still available, I took Abreu in the 2nd, and then with my next pick, Peavy was the highest-ranked player left on my draft board. Incidentally, I think I've done a 180 on Peavy since I posted that I'd rather have Zambrano than him
. I got burned by Peavy like 2 or 3 years ago, and took a year off from Fantasy last year, and didn't realize just *how much* of a stud he is now.
Anyway, Santana, Peavy, Schilling isn't too bad for the top of a rotation... Too bad my hitting is mediocre, and I don't have a shortstop worth speaking of.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?
