Liriano, Lee, and Lester are my narrowed choices and they are all fairly even. I'm giving the edge to Lester because he is just a little safer than Liriano. Both of those guys were still developing last year, but run support and bullpen push Lester ahead of Liriano. A lot went right for Lee last year and it's unlikely everything will go right again.

I went Gallardo but Liriano is a tossup with him for me.

Greinke! Although I do love the upside of Liriano and YoGa here, as well...

looks like we've found a new tier. some injury history guys, some upside guys, some 2008 breakouts, and one crappy pitcher.

i went with cliff lee, but i'd be just about as happy with gallardo or liriano. and i'd feel ok with lester, greinke, or dice-k here too. i don't totally trust burnett, but as a yankee, he'll be right there.

volquez is outside this tier to me...he has A LOT to prove, and obviously zambrano is too.

when are derek lowe and javier vazquez getting on this list?

EDIT: Top 20 SP only? We should go to 30 with this big group.

And here I thought the crappy pitcher you were refering to was Cliff Lee. !+)

BTW just don't get the Liriano love, he has had 2 or 3 very serious injuries to his arm, yet your trusting him this high? He also has yet to prove anything over a full season.
