Ok this is my 2nd year playing yahoo baseball, my 1st year i did decent, but i kinda rushed my draft. So i have a question for all u Vets...
During a draft which do u pick 1st? Pitcher or Batter?? or does it not matter..?
I think last year i picked Pitching..

depends on the overall value in the future rounds. last year, there was a lot of pitching depth available in rounds 8-12. i didn't take a pitcher til rd 9 and still ended up with a solid staff. 5x5 roto, my batters almost swept and my pitching was above average. good for a championship.

Personally i always go with a batter. With your first 2-3 picks you want to draft guarantees. These are guys that have produced solid #s year in and year, guys like Wright, Pujols, Howard, Rodriguez. With these guys you know what you are gonna get and with pitchers, you just quite never know. Two years ago i drafted Jake peavy to lead my staff, that year he finished wiht an ERA over 4 and was a complete bust. Thats just an example Im not syaing thats gonna happen again to every pitcher but a similar example is Beckett. Pitchers seem to come out of no where more then hitter, like Johnny Cueto from Cincy last year. Its up to you really and really the draft sets your stage for the season but if you manage your team well during the season you can beat people who had better drafts. Best of luck

if this is a H2H league, and no rules on adding players, don;t take a pitcher until at least round 7. Absolutely no question about that.
