10 team points league. We auction 17 players, and pick 8 by draft (I pick 4th). After the auction, I have concerns at 3B, OF, and SP. Which position should I shore up with my first pick? (roster below)
Best options at OF: Gardner, Swisher, Bourn, Adam Jones
Best options at 3B: Alvarez, Reynolds
Best options at SP: G. Gonzalez, Vasquez, Volquez, Hellickson
Part of me wants to go with OF and pick Gardner, as Sizemore is such an injury risk. But it seems that every season there is an OF that puts up unexpected numbers. 3B is always thin, but I think that in this league Alvarez may slip to my second pick. I really like Gonzalez, plays in a pitchers park and was very consistent all year last year, but I already have two very young starters. Thoughts?

3B: A. Ramirez
OF: Crawford, Ethier, Bay, Sizemore (start 4)
