Ogando. He has had good stuff for a couple years now.

Seems you do not have any closers. I would take Reed unless you think he will be there next round? Also if you want to stick with grabbing a SP I would take Hellickson over any of them. He is young will likely keep his ERA below 3.50 although his k/9 last year was only 6.31 he is probably the safest bet to be in the rotation all year unless he gets hurt.

I would look to Buchholz, Hellickson, Minor, Romero, Rosenthal in that order over the next few rounds.

Seems I'm always against the norm in these posts, but I really like Hellickson. He's not a blow you away type, but he gets quality starts and is a very effective pitcher. But between your two, I like Minor over Ogando.

I personally like what I saw from Minor in the 2nd half of last year and would make him my pick.

Seems like we got some for Ogando, Minor and Hellickson. The questions seem to be will Ogando be as good going back to SP as he was the first time. Some rankings seem to question it. Minor was good at the end but really bad other times. Being a fly ball pitcher is can go bad quickly. Hellickson is solid but won't put you over the top. Have to deal with the AL East. But I guess anyone this deep in the draft will have some warts.

I had Reed and Romero on my team last year. Neither really make me want to run out and get them again. Romero I had as a keeper for awhile. But totally imploded last year. Reed I thought would be my closer of the future. But he didn't seem to take the role and run with it like we all hoped he would.
