    I will say that it is Roy Oswalt just because if anything goes up with him then the whole team is bound to go up with him.

    I chose Wandy over Roy, for this year, just because he has been so consistent - even back to Spring Training.

    Roy will surely have a great year, I'm just guessing this could be Wandy's breakout year.

    Same here. Wandy is a great player and possibly a bit underrated. Strikeouts happen pretty often with him, however, i think he has some control issues and sometimes throws down the middle which is what could kill his game. Wandy should be a future great pitcher but even now is still a fun pitcher to watch. He is always doing either outstanding or is kinda off.

    Oswalt has been consistently good for 8 straight years. I'll just say he is off to a bad start and will rally from there.

    Well, again, that is why I started this thread specifically for 2009.

    I really believe it is going to be Wandy. He's having a super year, with no signs of fading.
