Marcum is head and shoulders above the rest in this group. His offense is going to get him wins, he has solid K numbers, and his ERA/WHIP are solid. All around he is the best.

Jurrjens has to be number 2. He is similar to Marcum except he does not get the K's. They were talking about him on the radio here in St. Louis and Bobby Valentine mentioned how Jair said he doesn't try to throw the ball as hard as he can, he simply tries to hit spots and make the ball move. While that doesn't lead to many K's, it sure helps the ERA/WHIP. He's a little over his head now but he knows how to pitch and should be very solid from here on in.

Kennedy makes the 3rd spot on the list for me, with many of the same reasons as Jurrjens. Kennedy seems to be good at hitting spots, and his stuff is a little better than Jair so he gets a nice amount of K's to go along with the control. He is inconsistent, however, and Arizona is a tough place to pitch, so he sits at number 3.

Garza is 4th despite having the most raw talent of the group. He gets the K's and can pitch deep into games, but he is wild and inconsistent at times, and has struggled with injuries this season. He could easily end up being number 1 on a list, but until he locks down a full healthy season and doesn't blow up so much, he just isn't at the level of the other 3.

EDIT: I like to do the rankings without looking at what others put and saw Kapluie had the exact same as me. Looks like we may be on the same track here, hopefully this helps you out guy. ;-D
