What are your thoughts on who will have a better year. (wins ERA and h/w ratio considerations only)

I'd go with Burnett. He's in the National league which will help his ratios. Also, he's on a team with a potentially great offense. Can't really say the same for Harden. I like Harden, but Burnett's just in the better situation.

Burnett is in a far better situation, and I prefer him over Rich Hard-on.

Tough one. I'd go with Harden, simply out of injury concerns. They're extremely close though.

Both would make great #2s, but I wouldn't want either as my #1.

Burnett, but just barely. Hard to go wrong either way.

I'd take Harden, they both pitch in a pitchers park, but I think Oakland is more of one and he is less of an injury concern. Harden has more potential too. If Burnett can do what he is capable of its slightly better than what Harden did last year. If Harden improves at all I think he is better than Burnett.
