If you go by early returns in mock drafts, I think that owners are failing to realize the depth at this position. We are seeing guys that are either unproven or clearly on the decline (Rickie Weeks/Brandon Phillips) regularly drafted in the first five rounds. I would not go that rout with my team. I think that once Kinsler goes off the board, if I don’t have a second basemen yet, I am going to fill other holes until it gets down to the Roberts, Beckham, Hill level and take my chances that way. If I use this strategy, I will also plan to take a flier on Kendrick or Walker as well, just in case. So, that is my 2011 strategy, what is yours?
