Vazquez is a step above the rest. Myers and Pedro not all that far behind, but at least 20 picks.

Surprised Penny is so low on everyone's list. He keeps pitching well and never gets noticed.

Penny was the guy I was thinking was above this group. Even with the 2nd half slide.

Vazquez

Myers
McGowan
Billingsley
Hudson
Penny
Perez
Wainwright
Lilly
Pedro
Buchholz

Javi is the obvious standout IMO. He's very inconsistent I know but when he's on his 200 K potential puts him above the rest of these guys. The rest are very close, I could be biased on Myers but he's a very good pitcher who can rack up the K's. If he ever gets his head on straight he could be a standout as well.

Pennys not close to the top imo. He was extremely lucky the 1st half. A 81% strand rate, and a 2% hr/f ratio. His xERA was 4.20.

If Buchholz gets an early chance at the rotation(via the Schilling drama), then I would bump him up a few. I like Pedro more than most this year apparently...I'm okay with that! O:-)

This is pretty close to how I have it. Vazquez and Myers are a step above the group followed by Billingsly, Wainwright and Pedro. I would take Buchholz before Lilly just due to pure upside.
