Don't look for Konerko, look for Sweeney instead in the 3-5 range.
As for your 8th pick, I've got a similar pick at 7th overall. You might know the owners in your league better than I, but I think it's Vlad, Soriano, ARod, Bonds, RJ gone with the first five. Then there's Giambi, Schilling, Pedro, Pujols, and Sosa as the guys to pick from.
You can get a pitcher and then a Mags/Beltran caliber hitter next pick.
Or you can get a hitter and a Zito/Oswalt caliber pitcher next pick.
Of the hitters I'd take Pujols then Giambi then Sosa.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
