    First Pick

    I just found out that I got first pick in the draft of one of my fantasy leagues... who should I choose first? Or, at the least, what parameters should I use for investigating who I choose first?

    Can't go wrong with Albert or Dunn.

    Pitching Santana, Johnson would be my first 2.

    I'd take either Pujols or A-Rod. Bonds may miss up to 40 or 50 games, and hitters are generally a little more valuable than pitchers.

    ARod, Pujols or Vlad. Anything else and you've wasted your pick.

    Re: First Pick

    What are your scoring categories?

    I wouldn't take Johnson first because of his injury history and new surroundings. Pujols or Santana would both be good picks, as would Vlad or ARod.

    thanks for all the advice; looks like Pujols names comes up the most.

    The categores are extremely basic, more so than any league I've ever played in: Stat Categories: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

    Basic 5x5 league. I'd go with Pujols.
