I'm completely on board with this. If you don't get Pujols, MCab, Votto, A-Gon, Tex, Howard or Fielder in the first two rounds I think you are at a disadvantage. I'm OK with Morneau, Dunn and Morales too but I would hate to be looking to fill my 1B spot after they are gone.
Yep, I think you must get at least 30 homers from first base to be competitive. There are a couple of decent young sleeper types like Ike Davis, Mitch Moreland, Brandon Belt, etc. but I don't see anyone in the 8-13 round range, guys who played well last year and could easily explode to a top 3 round value in 2012. 1B is pretty static, most of the top guys were already top guys, no new faces.
