Close, but I like Starling's potential more long term.

I would also take Starling in this case. If Starling is able to reach his potential you are talking about a 30-30 CF which is pretty special and with power becoming more scarce each year with the absence of PED's it's even more important. Starling does carry a good deal of risk as toolsy players like him have failed in the past (Donavon Tate) but some have panned out (Mike Trout). I typically favor hitters as I feel their risk of injury is lesser than that of a pitcher (rotator cuff, tj surgery, shoulder issues, etc.).

I also like Bradley who has a very high ceiling as a pitcher and could understand why some may prefer him. I still go for Starling. Good luck! ;-D

Bubba for sure. Unless it's a Moore or Strasburg I always go with the potential 30-30 player over a pitcher.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Really like Bradley's delivery and scouting report. Hultzen is probably safer because he's closer but I hate that cross the body delivery. I actually like the 2 HS arm better than all the college pitchers not named Bauer.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

The answer is now ABradley. I always want to swing for upside in prospects and ABradley has a ton of it. Superstars win leagues and Bradley has #1 SP potential. :-)

I assume Lindor's gone? I'd prefer him over a HS pitcher.

If Bauer Cole and Bundy are gone I'd take Bradley.
