The Power Cocks 2011 Rookie Draft

I am the owner of a very fine Fantasy Baseball Team called The Power Cocks. Cats are as followed. AVG, BB, HR, RBI, R, DT (Doubles + Triples), SB ERA, WHIP, K, W, HLD, SV, QS 20 Team League. I have the picks 6, 8, 18, 35. I was debating as to what I should do with these said picks.

With the picks that I have I was thinking of going with Stetson Allie with either my 6th or 8th picks. I know not too many people are that high on him but I personally feel his upside matches almost anyone in the draft outside of Harper and I am a sucker for guys with a lot of upside. If Drew Pomeranz does fall to me at 6 I do plan on taking him. I have seen Chris Sale going pretty high in drafts but honestly just looking at his arm action makes me think that his chances to stay healthy aren't exactly that high. I was also thinking of taking Nick Castellanos as well since it looks like a lock that Pedro will be moving to first with him gaining 15-20 pounds in the offseason. Not to mention Anthony Rendon looming right around the corner. The one concern I do have about Castellanos is his power ceiling I think his bat tool is around a 60 so I do feel he is going to hit either way but obviously you are going to want power out of a 3B.  If Castellanos is picked by those picks I was thinking of snagging Zach Lee there. I know I am already stacked at SP but I don't really like any of the bats in the draft this high. With my 18th pick I am looking at AJ Cole I love how projectable he is at this point. I really think he is going to develop into a number 2. As for my last pick I am looking at either Matt Lipka or Brett Eibner. I'd preferably want Lipka just because I think Hamilton is going to end up at 2B and I'm not completely sold on Escobar right now. Just wanted to get everyone's thoughts on my draft plans and what you guys would do in this situation. Also I should clear up that basically we can only draft guys from the 2010 draft class since everyone worth anything was picked up mid season.
