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!

I was thinking about that, but the only reasonable SS to trade for is Tulo who is also a 1st rounder, and our rules only allow us to keep 1 player per round so I couldnt keep both him and MCab (unless I also manage to acquire an additonal 1st round pick but thats nearly impossible to do).
Cano is the same situation.

Hanley, Reyes, Pedroia, Kipnis, Kinsler will all be available in the draft

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.


This. At least we have seen Harvey perform a little bit on the Major league level. While Bundy is supposed to be the "real deal", he is just another one of the many "can't miss" pitchers the Orioles were supposed to be developing the last 5 years or so. So far none of them have come even close to their hype. I am not sold on a pitcher coming to the AL East and putting up ace numbers out of the box. Your team is built to win right now, and for those purposes I think Harvey will help you win now much more than Bundy.

90% of my keeper valuation is based on the next season in keepers so I would easily pick Harvey. Bundy looks like something special but this is true of so many pitching prospects (Bauer last year). Harvey at least has some big league experience and looks like he could be pretty good himself.

Disclosure - I traded for Harvey last season and I might be biased...

I'm taking Harvey. Play to win next year, not two or three seasons from now.

This.

I also don't like Bundy being in the AL East vs Harvey in the NL East. I think Harvey turns into a legitimate ace with good K numbers.

Same here. I'd go with Harvey cause he helps you more this season. I might be a little biased too about seeing SP prospect after SP prospect fail to live up to the hype in Baltimore.

fixed.

there are exceptions of course but typically SP'ers start out rough. At least harvey has done something in the majors but he could be another disappointment.

I would go Bundy. I doubt Harvey is going to put your team over the edge to a title. Bundy is not far away and 24th round is zero risk IMO
