Keep Bumgarner over Hellickson, but keep Trout. When both scouting and statistics agree that a prospect is likely to be a future All-Star, he's worth the risk. Trout has the floor of a leadoff "offensive spark" with plenty of Runs and SB, and the ceiling of a better-hitting Grady Sizemore in his prime.

;-D This is what I would do. Hellickson will be a fine major league starting pitcher, but he is not in Bumgarner's class at this point.

Agreeing with everyone else on this one. Hellickson's lack of K's hurts his fantasy value, and you can probably get him again in the draft next year.

Keep Mike Trout. Hitters > Pitchers every time and he is more then worth the gamble.
