    Eric Karabell and Tristan Cockcroft react to some pitcher trades, argue how to define overrated and talk to Mark Simon about trusting the numbers.

    POSITIONAL PREVIEWS

    • Joe Mauer

      Catchers
      If you're unable to draft Joe Mauer early, you might as well wait until the end of the draft to fill the position.

    • Albert Pujols

      First Basemen
      Once again, Albert Pujols leads the way at a very deep position that features plenty of top-notch talent.

    • Chase Utley

      Second Basemen
      Chase Utley is still the top dog here, but there are many near-elite options lurking in the next tier.

    • Alex Rodriguez

      Third Basemen
      Power is at a premium at the hot corner, which is why you need to get guys like Alex Rodriguez early on.

    • Hanley Ramirez

      Shortstops
      After Hanley Ramirez and four other elite options, the pickings at this position get very slim in a hurry.

    • Ryan Braun

      Outfielders
      There are plenty of solid options to fill the outfield spots this year, starting with Ryan Braun.

    • Tim Lincecum

      Starting Pitchers
      Tim Lincecum may be our top starter, but strategy goes a long way in building the rest of your staff.

    • Jonathan Broxton

      Relief Pitchers
      Jonathan Broxton is our best bet at a position with few sure things and lots of volatility and uncertainty.
