Thoughts on Ian Kennedy? He doesn't have the stuff that many of these guys have, but he has great control and is always calm and cool out there. Seems mature for his age.

Probably doesn't have the potential as a lot of other names mentioned, but I don't think he will hurt you.

And he's also got a spot in the rotation and no apparent innings limit (like Hughes and Joba.) I wouldn't mind taking a flier on him during one of the final rounds of a draft.

I can't remember if Justin Duchscherer was mentioned in this thread or not, but I would be happy to take a flier on him if it appears that his hip is ok coming out of spring training. Stamina might also be a concern to start. Excellent control, career 7.4 k/9. He was a pretty good SP when he was drafted. He'll apparently be the #3 in Oakland behind Blanton and Harden. (Which means that he'll soon be the #2 when Harden goes on the DL... or the #1 if Blanton is dealt.)

Two guys that I like are Ian Kennedy and Jon Lester. Not great upside but they play on good teams and should be solid.

Has Edinson Volquez been mentioned at all here? He's tearing up ST and it looks like Dusty is probably going to give him the 3rd or 4th spot. He was very highly regarded coming through the Rangers' system and had an amazing 2nd half last year.

Got Cueto on two keepers teams. Hopefully he starts off hot at least so I can use him as trade bait.
