I went Lester due to his post AS numbers. Can't argue against Greinke or Lee but just decided to go with Lester.

I went with Lee. I think he'll have another good year.

Greinke. I think Lester gets the Boston bump and Greinke the KC drop, but I'll take Greinke's better dominance and more experience any day.

Plus, Lester had a 70 inning increase last year. I say too much, too soon for someone with his medical history.

As for Lee, I still don't believe last season's numbers :-B

I've got Greinke with Lester close behind and Nolasco following them.

I went Gallardo here. In 134 big league innings, he's gone 9-5 with a 3.35/1.27 line, with a 8.11 K/9. He did that as a 21 and 22 year old. He just knows how to pitch, and is ready to breakout. His injury last year was non-arm related (fluky leg injury due to a head-first slide into 1st by Reed Johnson), and he came back and looked very solid in the postseason despite missing just about all year. I have him down for ~14-15 wins, a 3.61/1.28 line with 194 K. Now, that's assuming he can take on 200 innings or so, which might be a bit too big a jump for him this year. That's really the only risk that concerns me.

I like Harden more here in terms of his per-game production, but who knows how many games that'll be. Zach Greinke is also very close behind.
