hey grey i ended up getting the first overall in my 12 team league, with C, 1B, 2B, 3B, OF, OF, OF, UTIL...so where i'm struggling is when it snakes back to me in the 2/3 rounds...if i start with pujols, then i'll go with zimmerman for one of my picks, but then i was wondering if you thought taking votto as my other would be a bad call depending on who's there? i feel like i would love to stash away votto on my utility, and i was thinking that if reyes were there that would probably be the only player who could change my mind...even if a good OF is there i think i could pass on him, take votto, then come back in the 4/5/6/7 rounds and get guys like granderson, b.j. upton, adam jones, quentin, cruz, etc...i'm also going to sneak beckham into one of those rounds, or perhaps the 8th, and then i think that's looking pretty solid...before you second guess my strategy on my pitching, just know that last year with your help in the top pitchers posts and who to stay away from and target i killed all pitching by not taking one until the 8th (my first 4 pitchers were josh johnson, wainwright, vazquez, and cain...so i'm still confident i'll find those good arms later...so what are your thoughts on that votto situation, do i have to take sizemore or a top OF is he is there or can i stick with votto? thanks a lot

Don't draft Votto if you have Pujols.
