BUY/SELL Analysis

Madison, Alderson, Lincecum...OH MY!

Is there a pitcher having a better season right now than Madison Bumgarner?  Less than a month removed from his 19th birthday, Bumgarner is putting up Playstation-like numbers in the South Atlantic League going 15-3 with a 1.46 ERA and a sterling 21BB/164K ratio.  Hitters have managed to hit an anemic .216 against the big southpaw.  Bumgarner brings heat, regularly hitting 93-95 MPH with a lively fastball that saws off right-handed batters.  Bumgarner has a sharp breaking slurve and is improving his changeup.  Bumgarner has cards in the 2007 Bowman Draft and Chrome set as well as autos (#’ed to 794) in the ’07 Donruss Elite Extra set and Bowman Sterling set.  His Donruss Elite and Bowman Sterling autos sell for $25-30 each while his chrome cards regularly can be found in bulk at $1.50-2.00 a card. 

Market Advice: Normally, I have a hard time paying premium prices for pitchers, albiet young ones.  However, Bumgarner is special.  His exceptional athleticism, powerful frame and firm grasp of the strike zone has placed him on the fast track to San Francisco.  He has the ability to dominate at ever level he pitches.  The thought of a rotation that features Bumgarner, fellow ’07 1st rounder Tim Alderson (who is also having a stellar season), and future Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum must have Giants fans drooling.  His autos are a good BUY at these prices, but I would opt for the Bowman Draft and Chrome cards in copious quantities.
