How much was the option for? I know I said the incorrect thing in my post before, but how much different is declining an option compared to being non-tendered.
I agree that Brackman could surprise, but like you said he is a reliever and he is coming off a 7.0 BB/9. Right now, if you want to go with a reliever, I think you have to go with Judy over Brackman. Judy did struggle a little with his AAA control at 4.3 BB/9, but that's not nearly as bad as Brackman and Judy did have a 10.4 K/9 last year.
I would rather have the starter too, which is why I am going Crabbe, Garrett, Judy then Brackman.
