Kuroda was surprisingly very effective in his move from the NL West to AL East. Pettitte was good when he was healthy, although he came late and suffered an injury during the year. Nova was effected with gopherballitis more than anything, which I think will regress to his first two year totals of under 9% HR rate. Hughes I'm not a big fan of, but as a #5, he's > Romero, should his injury issues not be too serious. The Jays may have bigger names, but Buehrle is pitching a spot too high (more of a 4 than 3), Johnson and Dickey are moving into much tougher hitting divisions, Romero was a mess last year and Morrow was hurt.
If Dickey keeps up his massive K rate that will be a good sign for them, Johnson should be a good number 2, but I'll take the Yankees back end over the Jays, especially when the Yankees have Pineda, Baunellos, and Campos sitting in rehab/minors.
