    do I wait to take a pitcher or should I grab at least one stud pitcher right away say Kershaw, Darvish, Sale or Wainwright, with one of my first two picks

    • Depends on the rules of your league. If you reset your lineup daily and there is no innings limit, you can use your bench for pitching and if you are allowed a lot of moves, you can stream pitching during the season. Pitching is deeper than it's ever been right now. You don't need to draft an ace at all, IMO. I would fill at least 7 of your offensive positions before you start taking pitchers.

    • I don't know where you're drafting, but if you hold Sale in the same breath as those other 3, he is averaging around a 3rd round pick. Many people think taking an ace in the first few rounds, but there are plenty of people who win every year drafting a stud. If you like Sale, grab bats in the first two rounds and if he's there in the 3rd you can take him, if not you can hold off. It all depends on how well you work the wire during the season.

    • go with bats first 3 or 4 picks plenty of good pitching
