In the first round i would go with the best possible player that u can get, after that i would work on the infield, and pitchers, u can get OF's anywhere

I personally feel that 1B isn't as deep as people think it is. I don't want Konerko or Olerud as my 1B.......

I would go Best Available in the first round then start targeting thin positions, mostly 2B and SS. C is obviously the slimmest pickin's of all, but after the top 3-4 it's straight downhill, so no need to reach; just wait till the final rounds.....should be able to snag Mauer, Martinez, Lecroy, AJ, LoDuca. You don't need Pudge bad enough to draft him in the 3rd round, which is about where he'll go in a lot of drafts.

I actually think SS is no where near as thin as it was even just a couple years ago. Even after the top 4, you have Rentaria, Furcal, O-Cab, Matsui, Aurilia, Valentin, Cintron, Reyes, Rollins, Eckstein, etc.......It's not that hard to get a productive SS!

2B is where the real talent shortage lies. After Soriano, Boone, Kent and maybe Giles, you have a vast wasteland of unproven youth, aging former stars, injury-prone veterans and defensive specialists. It's quite the gamble, any way you choose

Hope my ramblings help........ :-)

I'm just a bit concerned that he might not be as good as last year. The year before last he put up about 20 less RBI, 20 less runs, 10 less SBs, and his average was .025 lower. Still good, but not top tier. I'd much rather have Tejada who'll give me a sure 100 RBI, 100 run, 25 homer season.

Renteria has consantly gotten better I wouldnt be too suprised if he came close to his numbers or did better than last year

I think Tejada is more valuable than Renteria. He plays every day. Will bat 3 in a much improved lineup compared to Renteria who bats down at 6 and still gets put in cotton wool.
