    WHEN DRAFTING WHATS MOST IMPORTANT!??

    Do research......

    Stay away from one-year guys. Sure, they may succeed again, but why gamble?..... Also, no need to get pitchers early. In my experience, drafting a top SP rounds 3-5 is ok. If you get 7 hitters and 1 SP in the first 8 rounds you're doing ok. Since the top 10 SPs usually go around the first 8 rounds, there is no point going after multiple of them. But, when drafting your hitters, make sure you don't get players of the same position...... Don't draft closers early either. You can grap 20-30 save guys late (rounds +12). Thats really all you need from them. There will always be guys taking over the closer jobs, just pay attention......NEVER draft a C until at least pick 100. Most C (excluding Mauer) are overrated and will hold little value throughout the season.....Don't overpay for big names......Try to get the 20-20 guys. Having a team full of them is best way to go.....
