Last keeper spot.
Trying to figure out if I should stay put with Kris Medlen.
Rank the top 5 to target in your opinion.
Have a few options to try for an upgrade:
Jered Weaver LAA SP 28 81.6 9 4
9 Cliff Lee PHI SP 33 74.3 5 -4
10 Gio Gonzalez WAS SP 25 86.1 19 9
11 CC Sabathia NYY SP 30 91.4 11 0
13 Matt Moore TB SP 22 64.5 17 4
15 Adam Wainwright STL SP 29 69.4 12 -3
16 James Shields TB SP 29 78.8 18 2
17 Tim Lincecum SF SP 27 57.3 13 -4
18 Dan Haren LAA SP 31 57.4 16 -2
19 Tommy Hanson ATL SP 24 55.5 15 -4
20 Madison Bumgarner SF SP 21 85.5 20 0
21 Jordan Zimmerman WAS SP 25 84.2 22 1
22 Matt Garza CHC SP 27 82.9 24 2
23 Ian Kennedy ARI SP 26 82.8 26 3
24 Jeremy Hellickson TB SP 24 81.7 27 3
26 C.J. Wilson LAA SP 30 80.8 29 3
28 Chris Sale CHW SP 23 80.6 28 0
30 Jon Lester BOS SP 27 80.3 30 0
31 Mat Latos
Wait, so we're only ranking the top 5 to target from that list instead of Medlen? Who else were you thinking of keeping instead of Medlen? I love his RP eligibility for next year.
The top 5 to target is tough. That's a big list of awesome names lol Uhhh.....
Well...is there names on that list you'd rather keep over medlen?

clearly better, lee, GioG, bumgarner,
similar: zimmerman, sabathia, moore
Lee: his stats are amazing last year, the only down thing was wins, and if you watched him pitch it was partly the team, and mostly freakish bad luck. He could win 30 this year just to make up for all of the 1 and 2 run games he lost from bad luck last year (run support is a mix of the hitters and the luck they score on the days you start)
Gio- there will be regression, but he was great last year, and the Nats are a real team (i know i just pointed out that run support is partly luck, but it is still partly team)
Bumgarner- He has all of the tools, and has been making the right steps the last few years. He is basically a fantasy ace that only gets knocked down a little since he seems to have 1 or 2 blow up starts each season.
Zimmerman- i go back to run support again here, at some point bad luck just becomes the norm, and he just does not win as many as his team and periferals should suggest. His K numbers are also starting to see a little decline (still good, but no longer elite).
Sabathia- the oppsosite of the rest of these guys, a great bet to win 20 games (the yankees hitters are just that good)
moore- at some point you make a move for upside, and he has kershaw level upside
I feel that Matt Moore will put it all together soon and become an ace, his stuff is filthy. I would be inclined to take a flier on him. I also like Bumgarner, Zimmerman and Sale.
My top three are as follows.
1. Madison Bumgarner
2. Chris Sale
3. Gio Gonzalez
