I would actually go Guthrie. I know he's not the sexiest name in the book. But here's the deal:

2.17 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over his final 11 starts from last year after the trade. Has looked great in Spring Training. The Royals offense is no joke.

I have a feeling that Dave Eiland has figured out something with Guthrie and it has catapaulted him into the next tier of pitchers.

Its strange given his meager k/9 ratios throughout his career, but I think what he's shown recently has really made me a believer out of him.

I would go Guthrie in a redraft, Maurer in a keeper.

Happ is just a blow up from being demoted out of the rotation, believe me it will come. Bedard, he had a couple good years with the O's but he's nothing of what he used to be and he has a higher position in the rotation umm no thanks.

Good luck.
