Hitters reign supreme. 9 times out of 10 my first 4-5 selections will be hitters, unless Santana falls below 8th overall or Carpenter, Oswalt or Zambrano fall into the late 4th round that how I will draft. I will select a top tier closer in 5 or 6 than start filling out my rotation in rounds 7-12. Personally I would be thrilled to have a staff consisting of any four of the following: Felix Hernandez, Brett Myers, Dan Haren, Jered, Weaver, Cole Hamels, Chris Young, Matt Cain, John Lackey or Rich Hill. This is a definite possibility if you use this drafting philosophy.
But than again drafts can have some serious kinks thrown in so as the previous post stated you must be prepared to change on the fly.
that's pretty much the strategy I use, except I never draft a SP in the first round.
