Brandon McCarthy & Kyle Drabek

I can't figure these pitchers out. I can trade for them in an AL only, auction-style keeper league I'm in but just can't figure out if they're middle-of-the-pack starting pitchers or if they still have a high ceiling. Thoughts?

McCarthy is the safer pick although he's underwhelmed this year. Drabek has great stuff but he's immature and lacks focus at times. If he becomes more confident and can repeat his mechanics every time he could be ace. For the long haul I'd take a shot at Drabek, without expecting much this season. McCarthy is the better short-term solution and on the surface seems like he benefits from a weak division, but he never gets to face the A's unfortunately and has a lot of games against the Rangers and Angels.
