fantasy baseball type question

Hey,
First of all let me start off by thanking you for reading this post.
I'm in my first year in a deep keepers salary-cap league where you can keep players up to 5years (or more if they are farm players). I'm taking over a team that is balanced in hitting and pitching, and has a decent farm system, but would like suggestions as to which top prospect I should build my team on.
I hold the 3rd pick in the upcoming farm draft and the two guys ahead of me are set on picking Price and Moustakas.

That leaves me with players like Porcello, Vitters, Heyward, Wieters, Parker, Dewilters, Laporta to select from.
My question is should I build my farm around a top notch pitcher like Porcello or stick to a top hitter?
Normally in fantasy baseball leagues I build around the hitter, but there appears to be a sizeable gap between the talent levels of Porcello and the top hitters.

Other things you might need to know about my league is that the scoring format tends to favor hitters, unless the pitcher can rack up crazy strikeout totals (high 200s or more), but there is a bigger drop off between good pitchers to avg pitcher than there is to good hitters to avg hitters.
