As the calendar turns to March on Friday, baseball season is that much closer to starting.
For most fans, the upcoming season is always something to look forward to and to mark down on the calendar.
And for a lot of other fans, it means their fantasy baseball season is just around the corner.
Unlike the leagues in fantasy football where owners usually just pay attention for one or two days during the week, fantasy baseball has to be watched on a daily basis.
This is especially true for owners who are competing in big-money leagues. The team you draft and select in late March or early April likely won't be the same one you have at the end of September.
Leading up to everyone's draft, owners will break out the guide books, draft boards and every other source of material on how to build their team.
For every owner, it all starts with their first pick, setting the tone of your team.
Do you go with an ace pitcher? A lead-off hitter who steals a ton of bases? Or the power slugger that gets 40/100?
Lets look at the best options for who you could use with your first pick in your upcoming fantasy drafts.
