1) Mike Cameron, OF, Boston Red Sox

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

Another new Red Sox player who should benefit from a lineup loaded with run producers. Cameron will play a nice supporting role for my team. Expecting 20-plus homers, 80 runs, 75 RBI, and 10-15 steals

2) Josh Willingham, OF, Washington Nationals

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

Willingham is a decent source of late-round power. He has averaged close to 22 HR the past four seasons.

3) Neftali Feliz, P, Texas Rangers

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

I'm not sure what his role will be (are the Rangers sure?) but if he is handed a rotation spot the strikeouts will follow. There may be a few bumps in the road, but he is an elite talent. At worst he's a great middle reliever.

4) Ervin Santana, SP, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

Santana seemed to deal with the accumulation of innings from 2007-08 with an injury plagued '09. All signs point to better health this year, and he is just two years removed from a 200-strikeout season.

5) John Baker, C, Florida Marlins

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Wow, this pick hurts. I thought about waiting a little longer to draft my second catcher, but after Baker, I really didn't like any of the options. Baker won't play every day, but will get most of the work behind the dish and post a respectable average with some occasional home runs.

6) Alex Gordon, 3B, Kansas City Royals

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Healthy hip, healthy attitude, healthy approach. Expectations were too high for kid with barely a year of pro experience before becoming full-time major leaguer. He's about ready.

Kansas City Royals 3B Alex Gordon
Is '09 the year for Gordon?

7) Phil Hughes, P, New York Yankees

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

I'm giving Hughes the nod as the Yanks' fifth starter. If he can come close to his 10.0 K/9 rate last season, the extra innings will make his value skyrocket.

8) Erick Aybar, SS, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Pumped up his OB in second half last year which means more SB opportunities. He's 26 years old with experience and might top 30 SB.

9) Matt Thornton, RP, Chicago White Sox

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

I may not have saves in abundance, but Thornton and my last pick Ryan Madson give me, arguably, two of the most talented setup men in the game.

10) Carlos Santana, C, Cleveland Indians

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Oye como va! Hands off my stash! Ace in the hole. I'll fill in C with someone else in the meantime. I don't think he'll be in Triple-A for long.

11) Rick Porcello, SP, Detroit Tigers

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

There is plenty of upside with this young pitcher. Detroit will give him wins. Will he have a sophomore slump? I am going to take the risk.

12) Joba Chamberlain, P, New York Yankees

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

I have no idea if he'll wind up as a starter or reliever this year, but frankly, I don't care. He'll either be a strikeout machine and hopefully a win machine in the rotation or one of the more valuable middle relievers.
