          In the AL, Cliff Lee with his 4-0 record, 29 Ks, 0.28 ERA, 31.2 IP, and a 0.46 WHIP.
          I'm going to have to go with Edinson Volquez in the NL. He's 4-0, 33 Ks, 1.23 ERA, 29.1 IP, and 1.23 WHIP. What amazes me is he has 4 wins on a BAD team.
          Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

            The only problem is, I couldn't vote due to the fact that there isn't an option for Felix Hernandez.

              What has Hernandez done this year?

              There are five great pitchers in the NL (at least in April 2008) that deserve some consideration:
              Edinson Volquez (4-0, 1.23 ERA), Tim Lincecum (4-1, 1.73), Aaron Cook (4-1, 2.41), Ryan Dempster (4-0, 3.16), and Micah Owings (4-0, 3.48).

                    That's because we're voting on who have been the best pitchers in each league so far this season, not who the best pitcher is on your favorite team.

                      Well, to make my case more for Edinson Volquez, he has a 1.23 ERA compared to Webb's 1.98 ERA. Webb has 1 more K than Volquez but has pitched 11.2 IP more which isn't really Volquez's fault since he started the season as the #4 starter.

                      Felix Hernandez has had a pretty good year so far. 2-1 with a 2.22 ERA, leading the AL in Ks with 41 and a 1.23 WHIP.

                            Little update on Volquez, he now leads the NL in ERA and SO. 4-1, 1.27 ERA, 42 K, 35.1 IP, and a 1.19 WHIP.

                            Thank you Corey Patterson and the Reds offense for giving your all when this guy is pitching.

                              I keep waiting for the bubble to burst on Volquez, but man, he is looking fantastic lately.

                              Only problem is......he's managed by Dusty Baker. So the MLB should prepare itself for the young death of another pitching phenom i.e. Mark Prior.
