That's a question only you can answer. Do you need hitting or pitching. Both are great players with Bautitsta having a record, then the newbie coming in pitching his #$%$ off.
For keeper purposes I'd go with Sale simply for the potential for growth and improvement. He's already shown he can hang with the big guys. Unless that's a fluke, he'll just get better. JMOHO
Yeah, I could use pitching. Most of my keepers are hitters. it is an auction league and I have the cash to buy pitching if I need to. I am also keeping Trout (for $2!!) and Grandy (for around $23). Bautista is 16 bucks and Sale is 4. I agree with your read and would be receiving Sale. Just worried about Sale being a one season wonder.
