Im back and forth on this. Some second opinions would be greatly appreciated. Was offered Brandon Morrow for Trevor Bauer. I love Bauer's upside, but concerned about his obvious makeup issues. Also like Morrow, but concerned about durability, k/9 drop, etc. Any thoughts suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Tough one. Pitchers grow on trees. Take the talent now. I'd take Morrow.

I think I would also lean to Morrow. Just less risk in the pick.

Morrow here as well. You know what you are getting with Morrow, solid when he pitches but you know he will get hurt at some point. Bauer has a lot more risk and still needs to prove that he can pitch in the majors.

Personally I'd take Morrow without a second thought.

The D-Backs were obviously not high on Bauer and now he has to pitch in the tougher league.

Got to go with Morrow hear. Much more of a proven track record. Plus he won't have to be the ace on the team now with Josh Johnson and Dickey ahead of him.

Bauer has got a ton of talent, but was not terribly impressive in his brief stint last year and will now be playing for what appears to be an awful indians team. I am not totally down on Bauer, its just more that there is no way he is in the same league as Morrow.

Yes you need a proven arm in your rotation from the looks of it, Morrow's your guy.
