Pitchers that available are Cliff Lee, Roy Hallady, Johnny Cueto, Josh Johnson, Kris Medlan, Max Scherzer, CC Sabbathia, Jonathan Papelbon, Dylan Bundy, Tim Lincecum, Aroldis Chapman, Jason Motte, Ian Kennedy, Jon Lester.

I have 9th pick in the draft.

Value wise I like Jones and Goldschmidt. You may not need Goldy but I think he can be top twenty player by years end. You don't need a SS so cut them from list. Berkman is out. If based on needs then perhaps Jones and maybe Phillips or Zobrist. Of the pitchers I would conside Scherzer, Medlen and Lee but probably would go for a offense.

In a nutshell:
Jones fIrst and Goldschmidt second.

I agree with Singles..you should take Adam Jones first if you can. If he is not available, then Heyward. I also like Goldschmidt. Depending on how many OF slots u have, you can target Upton or Ellsbury 2nd round if Goldie is gone. Or Phillips is someone worth looking at.
