Better dynasty prospect: Taillon or Starling?

Between Jameson Taillon and Bubba Starling, who has the greater future star potential, and why? Thanks.

Have a chance to get one of these guys, and I'm really struggling with deciding which one. Any thoughts on comparing these two prospects and their future outlook would be most appreciated.

Before I dig too deeply into this one, are you sure you only have to choose one? What do your MiLB rosters/rules look like, as well as league format, MLB roster and any other pertinent details? These are always tough questions, but they can certainly be made easier with more info, so hit us up and I'll do my best to share my thoughts ;-D

Hey, thanks for the reply. I was basically trying to decide on two trade offers which were very even, and the tie-breaker for me was which prospect I wanted more. I ended up taking the Bubba side, even though he's several years away (unless he pulls a Longoria and fast-tracks from short-season A to the majors in 2 years). Your advice is well-taken though... I will include more details next time around. Thanks again! ;-D

These guys are pretty even in my book. Both have a lot of risk and a lot of upside. Did you want a pitcher or hitter?

Personally, I'm higher on Taillon but it really was a close call so you did well by going with your gut.

Taillon is generally rated a top ten prospect on 100 lists where i have seen Bubba range anywhere from 25-55 if that accounts for anything.
