How you draft or rank depends a bit on you. Some of us lean towards safety, some towards upside. You’ll see those different philosophies reflected here, but hopefully the final product is something that’s actually useful.

Please note, ranking this many players is a bear. If a ranker omitted a player, that’s something we’ll clean up as the week moves on. Maybe it was by design, or maybe you’ll read about some hard fades when we do our staff avoids post.

For now, let’s focus on the average of each guy, and see what’s crackin’ in our first pass at starting pitcher rankings.
