obviously you have no 2b or ss. there's no reliable ss available. roberts is a very good 2b. your choice is to pursue roberts or keep what you have. the question is whether roberts will be available or not at your turn to draft.
I would dump Bay and target Granderson...you already have 2 solid 1B's...Its a shame you can't target a middle infielder, Roberts may be on the decline and I'm not too sure about Bartlett...If Roberts or Bartlett were a sure lock to produce then I would Target them...
Sry took a bit to plow through that giant wall of text. I'd probably cut Bay to go in the 7th round. I'd take Cliff Lee with your first pick, and Roberts if he's still there with your second. Josh Johnson wouldn't be bad if one of those two are gone. Looks like a ton of good OF's are going to be there so don't fret over Bay too much.
Hard to say who will be there for you for sure but those are my thoughts anyway. Basically you need a 2B and another stud starter ASAP.
