Nice list. Few minor quibbles (Cain a bit low, Kershaw is a bit high though i do like him, and Bills should prob be with Oswalt/Beckett) but solid overall ;-D

Yea, Kershaw was a spot higher before the adjustment.

I think Scherzer spot is right; it's Bonderman thats the problem, he should be in the 5th tier since he's regressed (lower ks, higher whip) since 2006 and is DL ridden.

I dropped Bonderman below Jesse Litsch

I've been a big Lowe supporter (and owner in most leagues) for the last few years but with him switching teams I'd probably drop him down to that Cain/Wang area. Even if his ERA moves up just slightly with the move I can't justify him where he's been the last couple years.

I'd also vote to move Chris Young up into that group. He has potential to exceed those guys, but like Joba he still has some risk attached to him. However, I don't think I'd put him below the Cain/Wang/Lowe group.

But nice list.

Not saying anything is wrong with it but man that Tier 2 list has a ton of risk in it. Almost everyone on that list has been hurt in the past 2 years or has some sort of question mark around them.
