That's how I would rank them too but honestly none of them excite me.

I might be a little biased but I like Hochevar. He had a very solid second half and could breakout next year. Nova is nice but I don't think he is this good next year.

I was looking at Hochevar's 2nd half also. Luke was a #1 pick a couple years ago.

Nova is like Wang-the-2nd.
Eh. I'd have to keep him I guess.
Don't like his peripherals though too much, lack of ks.

I'd go with Hochevar. In the second half, his K's picked up and WHIP declined, which could be a sign for further improvement.

Hochevar barely over Nova for me. Neimann further away. I like Hochevar's K potential much more than Nova's. Plus the Royals could be improving so the W's may go! O:-)
