I have no problem with Gio Gonzalez being on the list and no Romero, but not a fan of LeBlanc. Romero's season really kind of came out of nowhere. Obviously he was a first round pick so he has some pedigree, but his minor league numbers were pretty unimpressive. Not sure how much is truth and how much is sensationalism, but I believe I've read in the past that sinkerballers often have a tougher time navigating the minors in a timely fashion and often struggle to control their sinkerball. If that's the case, maybe that's Romero's problem. That said, I'm not buying into him in the rough and tumble AL-East given his track record and surprising emergence last year.
