8th and final Keeper - Bundy or Harvey?

Postby bayside » Fri Dec 14, 2012 12:54 am

H2H Keeper league. Start 1 hitter at each infield position, 4 OF, 1 C
I can keep up to 8 players. No more than 5 players from the first 10 rounds.
At least 1 must be a pitcher.

So far I have penciled in:
1st - MCab
3rd - Bautista
4th - J Upton
7th - Ellsbury
10th - Granderson
20th - Lawrie
23rd - Craig


For the final spot I can keep either Matt Harvey or Dylan Bundy in the 24th round. Im slightly leaning Harvey just because that would give me at least one SP who I know will be with an MLB team on opening day. Kinda hard to build a decent rotation without keeping any pitching. Also I think I would be able to re-draft Bundy in a later round than Harvey, given that hes probably going to start the year in AAA.

On the other hand, all signs point to Bundy becoming the next Clemens/Verlander/Felix/Greinke

If you are confident you will be in line to win or do well go harvey, any doubt or wonder at all go Bundy

Even with that being said I would still lean a lot towards Bundy, you might ahve to wait until he can help you physically but I have to imagine he would bring a lot in trade if you needed rental help to win.

Agreed. Harvey will likely impact 2013 more. Bundy more in the long term. I really like Harvey.

I think I would go with Harvey as well although you have a hell of a lineup so taking a chance on Bundy could really pay off. I am not sold that Bundy is the next coming of a HOF pitcher and the Orioles track record is pretty poor when it comes to pitching prospects. So that is why I would keep Harvey.

Bundy in the long-term, Harvey for 2013.

I don't know, young pitchers usually don't dominate right away. I wouldn't expect Harvey to give you especially strong numbers in 2013, more like strong starts and absolute bombs averaging out to your typical young power pitcher stats: an ERA you can live with, above-average strikeouts, and an inflated WHIP. It's (most likely) going to take a few years for either of these guys to realize their potential, so why not go for the guy with the higher upside? (Bundy)

You will be kicking yourself if you miss out on Bundy in the draft. You aren't risking much by keeping him in the 24th and he will provide great dividends come 2014 and beyond.

Couldn't have said it better. Literally no risk with a 24th round pick here.

Thanks guys, appreciate the replies. Some very good points made.
Leaning Bundy now. If he somehow makes the O's Opening Day roster itll be a no brainer I suppose

I'd trade one of your OF for a 2b or stud SS. Then
3b - MCab *unless using at 1b? but that will go away next season*, Lawrie
CI - Craig
OF - Bautista, J Upton. Ellsbury. Granderson

That's an insane OF and you are stacked at 3b/CI.
TRADE!
