I don't see a thread for this yet and I am in a dilemma.

I have the 2nd pick in my draft and I fully expect to get Miggy with that pick. It is a 10 man league. My friends are notorious for freaking out and having 2nd round pitcher runs. For argument's sake let's say I draft Cabrera then the top 6 pitchers go in round 2. When the pick comes back to me I want Josh Hamilton (he's ranked around there). I've been doing mocks and can land David Price in round 3 but that won't happen with my friends. So do I reach for a pitcher in round 3 like Greinke or Wainwright? Or should I jump on the 2nd round hitter that falls due to the pitching run?

I would love a draft like Cabrera, Hamilton, Hanley (I think he has a huge year) but then waiting until 4th and 5th rounds for pitching I'd probably have something like Latos and Sale/Cueto. Not that they are bad guys, I just think it's important to have one ace on your team. Plus those #2 guys are no guarantees.

Take the hitter that falls.

Pitchers rarely provide second round value anyway. I'd stock up on top hitters, and settle for mid-tier pitchers later on.

Agreed. You can have an elite lineup, or at least 5 hitters and then load up on the middle tier pitchers while other scramble and reach for mediocre SS's.

You realize that Braun or Trout will be on the board when you're picking, right?

I have the number one pick in my draft.

Braun or Trout? Can't decide as of right now.

I don't draft a pitcher ever until rounds 6-8.

I'd take Braun, but you really can't go wrong with either.

I'd go with the hitter.

I'm in a bit of a dilemma as well. I need to pick seven keepers out of the following hitters/pitchers:

Giancarlo Stanton
Adrian Beltre
Yoenis Cespedes
Mark Teixeira
Jimmy Rollins
Alex Gordon
David Freese
Mark Trumbo

Felix
Jered Weaver
Johnny Cueto
Aroldis Chapman

I have five of those seven locked in: Stanton, Beltre, Cespedes, Felix and Weaver.

Of the guys remaining (Teix/Rollins/Gordon/Freese/Trumbo/Cueto/Chapman), who should I take? I was leaning Cueto/Chapman but now I'm thinking Rollins/Gordon for a more win-now approach.

You should probably keep Juan Pierre and Pedro Ciriaco.
