No matter how many times it burns people over the years, they seem to be obsessed with hurting themselves again by committing to pitching. I would not even take Santana round 1. Not because I think lowly of either pitcher, but becuase it is just a dumba** thing to do. You take the best stick because sticks are more reliable. Simple as that. The last thing you need is another Prior...or RJ from 2 years ago..or Pedro from a few years back. There is NOTHING worse than a round 1 SP going into the cra**er. You will base your entire draft strategy on the dominant ace and when they go down they usually take your staff with them...not worth it.
Take the best 1st round stick not named Soriano. Tejada would be the first choice...then Helton or Manny. Look to get a SP in round 3.

Stud pitchers, no matter how good ... help you in only 4 categories. A hitter, can contribute in 5. Even Tejada, who doesn't run much may be able to get you 10 SBs and add to your total.
A stud pitcher will get you ZERO saves.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
