    I drafted Edinson Volquez (CIN-SP)with my second round pick. What should I look for in Third round?

    Personally, I'd go for the best outfield bat unless there's an upper-tier second baseman still available.

    you're also going to need to pick up SB's at some point
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I drafted Robinson Cano (NYY-2B) with my Third round pick. What should I look for in Fourth round? I am thinking maybe getting my 3rd Outfielder.

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    who is available at OF? Crisp, Milledge, Damon, Gomez, are some SB options if they are still available. I'm assuming Ellsbury is gone

    Maybe Victorino if everyone else is gone?

    any other power bats available? You may want to go power bat for Utility and then SB for your OF spot

    I drafted Jhonny Peralta (CLE-SS) with my Fourth round pick. What should I look for in Fifth round? I am thinking maybe getting my 3rd Outfielder. Milledge,young are still available and Ryan Doumit PIT.

    I like Milledge to break out this year. May not reach 20 HR, but a great source of speed.

    Milledge would be a nice pickup if available

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    I drafted Lastings Milledge (OF-WAS) with my Fifth Round pick. What should I look for in Sixth ? I am thinking maybe getting my RP or a Starting Pitcher? Or should I look for bench help? Young and EE and a few good Pitchers are left.

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    With your starters, I would look at another closer. Chasing saves is no fun. What RP are out there?
