I agree. He should be back to a sub 2.50 era in that pitcher's park on his way to the NL Cy Young.

I'd go with Oswalt. I dont think Pedro will be under 3.00 ERA. And I would be surprised if he gets much more than 200IPs

I have Oswalt projected at 18w 3.21ERA 1.19WHIP 193k 216IP 8.04k/9

Pedro at 15w 3.20ERA 1.12WHIP 214k 200IP 9.66k/9.

Both are close, but the Astors are a better team in my opinion which should lead to more wins for Oswalt

It's close, but I like Pedro as well. I believe last year was somewhat of a fluke, and the return to the NL and a more pitcher oriented park should help his numbers ;-D

I like Pedro better...but only by a slight margin...I would be happy with either one on my pitching staff though... :-)

I'd take Pedro. I believe he is going to have a dominant year, and next year will be going at the end of the first/beginning of the second instead of in the third and fourth rounds.

I agree Pedro easily. Oswalts win totals could easily be really low this year without the offense of previous years. I think Pedro will have this one last great year before he falls apart.
