    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.

    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.

    Would you trust a blind scout? Of course you wouldn't but that's what you do when you simply go by stats
    Splifftone, OptiskeptSF and Ciaban have a lot in common

    Why? It’s not the Giants MO to sign players early. Like ever.

    Posey, Lincecum, Fat Slob 3B, Wilson (maybe not young anymore, but they didn’t lock him down either) Cain, etc are all young players they have not locked down.

    They’ll probably loose them all too because of their piss poor management of players. Excellent talent scouts out in SFG, easily top 5 over the past few years imo, but terrible on contracts.

    Sounds like someone completely unfamiliar with the giants... the giants don't offer to lock down players that are under their control. You don't do that. Pablo finally got paid with a 3 year deal. Posey is still under the team's control for quite some time, so when its his time to get paid the Giants will do that.

    They locked up Tim, and now will do so with Cain. I can't name the last time the Giants lost one of their developed players to free agency... can you?

    The only problem the giants have, is that they have developed so much talent that are all still young, that they can't max out everyone when their time comes up.
