    Madison Bumgarner or Matt Moore?

    Which 22 year old lefty has the most upside? who would you take now?

    I would take Matt Moore because of the contract but I think Bumgarner will have the better 2012 season.

    That's a good one, I would probably take Moore, but Bumgarner is going to be great too.

    I would probably take Bum in 12, and Moore after that. But it's too hard to say really.

    I agree with Jeffy. Bumgarner for this coming year and after that Moore all the way.

    Bumgarner for now. I think Moore has a very good chance of being better, but it's not like a pitching prospect has never flamed out before. Bumgarner has already been very solid in the majors.

    And Moore hasn't?

    He shut down the Rangers in his 2nd start in the postseason. Pretty damn good considering they were the second or third best offense in the majors.

    Thisclose but Bumgarner.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Moore is based on hype and non-performance. Moore did shutdown the Rangers, Bumgarner beat the Rangers in Texas in the World Series and shut them down as well.

    Bumgarner has already proven himself in the majors, last year he started 0-8 or something, and look where he ended up. 11th in the NL in ERA. 11th in the NL in K's.

    Bumgarner is poised for a breakout season. Let's see if Moore can pitch a season.

    Great question! I would take Bumgarner until Moore shows more of what exactly he can do. I am very disappointed that the Giants have not worked out an extension for Bumgarner yet.

    The difference between me and you is I don't need the internet to discuss baseball intelligently.

    Again, he's under the team's control for quite sometime. There is no need to pay him big money now, when you don't have to.

    See Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum.

    Just because he's under team control doesn't mean you can't cost control him. Look at Matt Cain! That's exactly what the Giants did with him, cost control. Giants would save money in the long run which is the name of the game for owners!

    I'm very quickly beginning to learn that you love spending other people's money. Are you a financial planner by chance?
