    Bumgarner vs Sale

    I know there was already a Bumgarner/Moore thread that seemed pretty lopsided ATM. I feel this is a better comparison to have at the moment since both are extremely young and already incredibly successful. Who would you rather have going forward?

    Sale is a big of a risk but has a huge upside, I'd take the sure thing though with Bum.

    Sale might be more of an injury risk, but guy is nasty.

    Bumgarner has the much better resume as he's pitched almost 500 innings. Sale has a little bit better k/9 rate but Bumgarner has better control. Bumgarner also seems more durable.

    I'd take Bumgarner.

    Yeah, right now I'd take Bum because of his track record. He pitched great in the post season too! Sale looks like he has better strikeout stuff tho.

    If Sale repeats this next year and he stays healthy you take him, since his numbers are just better. Health is the big question with him.

    Sale for sure. He pitches in the AL and does it extremely well even in a pretty hitting friendly ballpark. AT&T park is spacious, and the NL is not as potent offensively.

    Who's Older?

    I'll take the guy that's 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA going 15 IP against the powerful Rangers & Tigers lineups in the world series...


    Bumgarner is probably, no, scratch that, he IS the BEST young pitcher in the game under 24 years of age.

    BEST.

    LMAO at "track record" and "did it in the playoffs."

    A couple of games mean very little in judging a player. This is a game of huge sample sizes and long-term success. A couple of games in the playoffs is nice, and it's an accomplishment, but it says nothing as to who is better.

    Long-term the answer is obvious. If he's healthy, it is Sale hands down. He just has much better stuff, probably the best lefty stuff in baseball along with Kershaw. He also has extremely good command.

    So far he's been healthy, but health will be the concern. As a pitcher, though, as great as Bum is, Sale is the best young lefty in the game.

    Good comparison. I'd have to go with Sale though

    This sounds hypocritical. You say correct judgment involves long term success and that Sale is the obvious choice if healthy, yet Bumgarner has had more long term success.

    Sale may have had a better year, but this is his first year starting. Bumgarner was better than Sale his first year in the league and has been proven durable especially through the playoffs something Sale has yet to prove.

    Both of these guys are very good and very young. I don't think anyone can say definitively who'll be better but I'd rather have the guy who's more proven. Sale hasn't even had a 200 inning yet.
