Considering my draft position I may go this route....may end up last...but I don't think so.
Appreciate all reponses pro and con.
I'd definitely want solid pitching, but I wouldn't draft pitching in the 1st and 2nd rounds. If Lincecum falls to the 10th pick, I could see taking him. Or if F-Her or Halladay or Greinke falls to your 2nd pick. But hitting is more predictable and you want to make sure you can win that.
