I think top 5 hitters is pretty self explanatory. I'd give the edge to M-Cab over Reyes for the reason that it's a tantalizing prospect to see how M-Cab does a full year in Detroit, fully adjusted.
As for Sabathia, I think he's a top 5 pitcher but you look at his prior workload over the past few years and there's reason to believe he'll eventually tire out. If that's not the case, then I see CC's ERA inflating with the move back to the AL, in a more unfriendly division than the Central. I'd give Hamels the slight edge even though he has workload/injury concerns too but Philly tends to take good care of his arm.

Halladay's close in my rankings, but Webb's division gives him a slight edge. I suppose fatigue muddled Webb's line in the end (that sinker didn't have much sink in the second half), but I'd give the slight edge to Webb still. Understandably, Halladay carries a better K rate and he still approaches the game to get more groundballs in order to keep him going strong into the later innings.
