ROTO DRAFT 5 X 5 FIRST 10 PICKS OFFENSE

Decided to draft hitters the first 10 positions to see what would happen. I think I ended up with a pretty good staff. I punted on closers a bit which was my intention and was going to wait a little longer on catcher but Ianetta was there in the 20th so I grabbed him. Any opinions welcome. I like how it turned out. It may influence my draft strategy when playing for real becuase pitching depth and value is there late in the draft. Also, did not intend to take Ramirez first but it turned out OK in the end. Any recommendations of what I could have done differently? Post your opinions.

I like your outfield a lot, but after that... it's pretty hit or miss. I think you did okay considering you took Aramis in the 1st (huh?) and didn't draft a pitcher until into the 10th. I don't necessarily like the pitchers you did grab first. Big Z's been going the wrong way for about 2 years now and Dempster wasn't the pitcher he showed in 2008. I don't like Pedroia in the 2nd and I'm not a huge fan of Morneau. Peralta and Johnson were good value though.
