it also depends if there are any runs on SP. if all the sudden they just start going in late 2nd- 3rd rounds, you have to start takin them.

as for zito, i would take a chance on him in the 2nd round, but late 2nd round. not early but late. unless there is still a stud hitter left like tejada or thome.

I'm also in agreement with not using early picks to get pitchers. I might be even a little extreme. I only picked 3 starting pitchers in the first 13 rounds, but my team is pretty damn solid:

Note: I traded Helton and Glavine for Vlad and Hoffman.
And as soon as Hoffman goes to the DL I can put him on it and pick up Brandon Duckworth.

Beckett - 9.50
Duckworth - 9.22
Mussina - 7.62
Millwood - 7.38
Sheets - 7.08

Mussina- 3.79 (182/48)
Millwood - 2.74 (178/65)
Beckett - 2.57 (113/44)
Sheets - 2.43 (170/70)
Duckworth - 2.42 (167/69)

Musinna Millwood and Duckworth are good pitchers on teams with superstar offenses and Beckett and Sheets are aces waiting to happen. Russ Ortiz is no slouch either and who knows which is the real Contreras. Plus it's a lot easier to use the wire and play the hot hand as well as choosing good matchups with pitchers than it is with hitters. And just another example of how high Zito is going, Zito went 14th in my league and Helton went 18th.
