If Jake Peavy leaves the NL West, expect his value to drop. I wouldn't have him that high on that list.

I think I'd have Kuroda somewhere. Maybe also some room for some injury guys with a bit of upside like Hudson and Marcum. If you got Bard on the list, you might as well consider Andrew Bailey. And I think I'd rather have a prospect like Brian Matusz than someone like Ian Kennedy.

It is way too early to have any kinda keeper ranking, cause it is greatly influenced by the first two month. For example Greinke is too high. He had a blazing start, but that was unreal. And he is Royals property 'til end of 2012.
BTW the whole list needs to be reworked. Buehrle over Vazquez blew my mind and stopped reading.
My first 4
Peavy, Sabathia, Gallardo, Felix, Greinke not necessarily in this order.

Agreed. Those 4 SPs are, IMO, the sure thing if I can keep any SPs ;-D
