I would take Harvey. Kid looks like he's in for a big season (I'm thinking similar to Dickey last year) and his numbers last year were good so it's not like he's a plug on a hot streak.

I like Samardzija but he's nothing special.

Wilhelmsen is off to a hot start but don't see it continuing all year (guess some people say that about Harvey too) but he's on pace for a 44 SV season, very doubtful that'll happen. The ERA and WHIP will come back down to Earth. He's a good candidate for a sell high scenario.

Help with mine if you can:

I like this trade too. Harvey is really good and you want him. I also agree about the saves and selling high (you can always get a closer on the wire as long as you keep up on things, i picked up mujica and Jim Henderson after the season started instead of drafting closers :)
I agree so much that i think he is trying to buy low on Samardzija and take your "stud" closer. I would try to get a mid level player with upside with this trade if you want. Otherwise accept and reap the benefit of having one of the best young studs throwing the ball this year racking up SOs for you.

Harvey - especially if you have the closers to spare. Samard is no slouch though.
