I dont know of a bias in general, but many prefer nl pitchers for a very good reason. Nl has no dh, and the league era and whips are lower then al. Every edge helps.
Giambi might be a hair better, although their ops are pretty close. But i prefer Helton in a keeper, 3 years younger, and home field.
