1B - Sandoval
2B - Kendrick
SS - Jeter (Keeper)
3B - Longoria (Keeper)
OF - Braun (Keeper)
OF - Choo

I like your hitting a lot, nice balance for your categories. Your front 3 SPs are totally fine, but then you might have to scramble. Bunch of question marks.

Grey, thanks a lot, I appreciate the input. I went for hitting instead of pitching a little too much in the middle rounds, I guess.

mtw02, thanks for looking. Here's a screenshot:

I am gonna guess/bet there are guys with higher upside on the next page of that. Namely Matt Latos (Who won't pitch until April 20th, FYI), Homer Bailey (Not a fan, but I'm also not a fan of that first page), & Anibal Sanchez (K's are there but the boy is wild, I tell you). You might want to dive and see if any of these three Blue Jays are still available: Romero, Morrow, Eveland (I'm sad I can't put Marc Rzepczynski up here right now). It's tough going in the AL East, but you've got QS as a stat which buffers the lack of W's.

I'd suggest a guy like Ryan Rowland-Smith or another like him if your league weren't so K-loving (K's and K/9). You might want to do a search by K/9 for starting pitching to see what you come up with that way. Good luck!

Both Bailey and Latos were picked in the draft. Sanchez and the Toronto three are available, but I feel like all of those options are question marks as well...

Yeah, at this point it's all about what you see as risky. I really don't like E-Jax this year and not much of a fan of Bucholz; Hughes might turn out nice. Guess it's more about what you'd rather gamble on at this point. What did you find with a K/9 search?
