I'm curious about the bottom group of hitters you would take before those top tier pitchers (Kershaw, Verlander, and Strasburg).
According to MDP, these players would be:
I'm assuming you would take Hamilton who represents the 13th hitter off the board. That means you would take 7 more. Personally, I would start considering those pitchers before Hamilton (at 13 overall), but I think you could make a good argument for Hamilton, Bautista, and Pedroia before them.
I'd take Pedroia and Bautista long before I took Kershaw. I think they're both borderline first rounders this year. I'd also take Beltre, Adam Jones, and Hamilton before them. I also have AGonz ranked ahead of them, but given his ADP I'd probably take Kershaw first and hope to get him in the 3rd round. I guess that puts him at 18th overall.
