I wouldn't say he's better than Billingsley keeper-wise. You can't go solely off one good start. Billingsley was great in a hitter's park and league. I don't think Lester is quite up to the same status.

Baseballamerica.com does their own ranking of baseball prospects and here are a few I pulled out that are pertinant to this topic:

#6 Francisco Liriano
#7 Chad Billingsley
#8 Justin Verlander

#10 Matt Cain

#22 Jon Lester

#37 John Papelbon

So my point with this is Papelbon, so far, has been more valuable fantasywise then many of the prospects ranked higher then him, so who knows....for this season, maybe Jon Lester can too.
But everyone seems to think Billingsley is the way to go in Keepers.

Even with Billingsley's 4 BB and only 1K last night he did fairly well containing runs from scoring even though he lasted 5.0 IP and gave up 2 ER. Only a good prospect who would do well can hold the other team to two runs esp. when they were in scoring position. Right now, based on starts, I'd rank Billingsley the same as Lester. Keep an eye on both of them and see how they do.
