You already have a ton of speed in Ellsbury/Castro so go with Gordon. I also prefer Gordon straight up in terms of value.

I'd keep Bourn. With Ellsbury your speed will be set.

I think I will go with Bourne as well. I think both are likely to see some regression but Bourne's speed would be great for your team and you wouldn't have to worry about it at draft.

Much thanks for the input guys.

I have to decide tonight, and as of now I'm leaning towards Bourn as well.

IMO, while both players are likely to regress, each is still worth the gamble for the price I'll be paying (since I got both for pretty cheap last year). Bourn seems more of a sure thing to give me the stats I want from him though, and I can go into draft targeting power while not worrying much about speed.

Another minor reason is that I already have Hosmer and I try to avoid having too many players on the same team in H2H. Just in case the Royals as a team go into a slump, or have a tough week against good pitching...etc.

Too much speed is something you can settle later... I do not see as a huge issue. Bourn has best value.
