Hampton - I really like him this year, he had a great second half last year, seems to be very undervalued from what I've seen.

I'd take Penny

While both he and Hampton had very good 2nd halves, Penny is younger and seems like less of a risk to me...although apparently I'm in the minority.

I would probably advocate a choice of Escobar or Penny. Also, keep in mind Bartolo's k rate has steadily been dropping over the last 3 years, so you may not be getting the K pitcher you've envisioned. Wouldn't be surprised to see him less than 7 Ks/9 innings pitched this year.

What round and your roster would help. You might be able to shore up another position and then get a pitcher later.

Penny here too....as safest pick. Don't forget that Ben Sheets actually has talent on that Brewers team. He could win 16 if everything falls right....pretty sure to get you 12-15 for sure.....w/ decent K's, a sub 4.00 era and good peripherals.

IF penny is healthy go with him. Otherwise it has to be Hampton.

Penny is my top choice.

Escobar and Leiter are a notch down.
