I'd drop Lynn and Guzman (I just don't see where he's going to get playing time). Definitely would draft Darvish first.

I would probably let Guzman and Allen go. I am intrigued at what Lynn could do as a starter.

I think I would draft Darvish although I might think about trading the pick. there are a lot of nice young prospects that could help your team in the future and if you could get a couple of those then I would try and do that.

I agree with this.

With guys like Arenado & Myers available, I'm not so sure that I would go with the arm. I'm kind of torn between these two, but I would probably lean toward Myers.

I think you guys are probably right about Allen and Guzman, but Can't drop them until after the draft. My options at first base were pretty limited last season because Swisher ineligble and didn't get Alonso until end of year. Should I be patient with Jacob Turner? I've seen speculation Myers up sometime this year. Anyone have a timetable on Arenado?

Be patient with Turner. He is only 20 and still has a lot of talent. Sometimes it takes a little while to start figuring it out.

All the prospects you mentioned are not likely to get many at bats this year which is why I said Darvish or trade out of the spot. I like a lot of those prospects but I think you could get a decent return on Darvish if you were to trade him.
