The better guy for this year will be Lester in my opinion...But for the long term, I feel Billingsey will top Lester, although not by much, but simply because Bill is in the easier league to pitch in.

to answer you question in a 8 team h2h a midseason rookie probably has no place. I like Billingsley to have the better career. Lester might have better K numbers but Billingsley appears to be the better around guy though.

We may soon see how good Lester is. I read he is suppose to pitch one game of a doubleheader this weekend.I have him on my minor reserve squad and have been thinking of moving him for a fulltime hitter.
