I would take Wright, in fact I was in a similar situation, ARod went first then someone took Santana. I went with Wright b/c I think he is the safer pick b/c of his lineup. I really think the departure of Cabrera is going to hurt Ramirez is a lot of categories. He is a very good player, but if you're the best player 1-9 then they are going to pitch around you. Again its only spring, but you have to think Ramirez is not going to live up to the hype.

Please explain this one. Don't you think it's a little to high for Santana?

I think the lesson is don't get the #2 hole. Unless.... nevermind.

I'm a little surprised there's not more love for Reyes at 2. Guess I'm a gambler, I'd have trouble passing on Pujols.

Yeah, its tough not to want Pujols here but the threat of him going down for the season is too much for me to gamble the 2nd pick with.

Bleh... Reyes burned me bad at #2 last year. Admittedly, a lot of my team was built wrong for the league I was in, but not getting power in the first round really held me back.

I'm taking Wright here about 60% of the time, and Hanley about 40% of the time.... and hating being in the #2 spot.

At #3 I'm taking the other one (Wright/Hanley).
At #4 I'm taking Pujols (can't imagine letting him slide too much further than this... I don't like the risk, but his numbers are just monsterous).

After that I'm getting a good spray of MCab, Holliday, Utley, Rollins, and Reyes.

Then there's a pretty good shelf for me before I get back into the Howards, Fielders, Sorianos, etc.

Well I just got 3rd pick... A-Rod and Hanley were off the board and I took Wright. Hopefully I don't regret passing on Pujols or Johan.
