I'll go with Strasburg and not expect anyone else on the list to even come close to him career wise.

Agreed. I'm not trying to hate on MadBum. He has certainly exceeded my expectations. He is however no Kershaw. It's not that close. Clayton's numbers year over year are jaw dropping. He is an elite class. As I did mention earlier, I could see MadBum putting together more than a decade of top 15 starter seasons. That will accumulate some really impressive overall totals. He barely missed my vote because I want to have Harvey's children.

Somehow I completely missed Moore in my post.
I agree with HighHeater that he is just as likely as Harvey to have the best career of the bunch.

Also Bum is awesome (which is why I picked him) but he is not really in the same league as Kershaw.

Honestly it's really difficult to pick any of these pitchers. They are all pretty awesome and they all have their own downsides.

Strasburg and Sale - Dr Andrews haunts both of them in the future :-o
Bumgarner - everyone's safe pick throws sliders 36% of the time - he's still the safest but some claim that sliders destroy elbows
Harvey - he's a Met and he's pretty awesome so something tragic has to happen. :~(
Miller - He is almost exclusively a 2 pitch pitcher throwing his FB 75% of the time
Moore - effectively wild but those control problems could prevent him from ever moving into the 1st tier of starters
Fernandez - has an impressive fastball but he didn't really make anyone look foolish with his secondary pitches (during one game that he was awesome). I NEED TO SEE MORE OF HIM!

I'm happy though because I have 3 pitchers on this list in a 24 tm league in addition to the 'New Derek Holland' and hopefully the 'Old Matt Garza'. ;-D

I picked Harvey. :-o
