ANDY BEHRENS: Eighth pick, OK, this could be worse. It could be better, but it could be worse. We can build on this. Eighth pick is pretty good in an average Yahoo draft. You're getting Shane Bieber here.

He was an ace starter last year. High K's, low ratios. That is exactly the sort of pitcher you want to build around.

I will caution you, you want to get speed near the top of your draft. You want to get your speed from somebody who's not a zero in the other hitting categories. If you do that, you start with Bieber, oh, my goodness, that is an incredible way to start a fantasy roster.
