Watching both of them pitch, I am extremely impressed with Webb. He reminds me of Kevin Brown, which is an extreme compliment. I would take him over Willis in keepers hands down. As for who will win ROY, probably Willis, since Webb don't receive the proper recognition.

I have to be honest I probably couldn't pick Webb out in a crowd.

Willis did make it to the All-star team and ESPN interviewed him during that home run derby.

Baseball awards are often unfair.

Miguel Tejada really the MVP last year?

No. And I'm a fan of him.

Ichiro in 2001? Probably not.

Hype and publicity have a lot to do w/ it, like the Heisman.

Willis will probably get it...but those of us who watch the game day in and day out know who the true winner should be... ;-D

I think Webb will have the better career too... :-)

Well, heres the numbers...

Willis 9-2 90.1 IP 2.59 ERA 1.23 WHIP 85 K
2 CG SHO's (yes one was only 5 innings)

Webb 7-3 111.0 IP 2.43 ERA 1.03 WHIP 97 K
1 CG SHO

The case could be made for either of them, just remember the season is nowhere near done, so don't jump to conclusions yet. Both taken in the 8th round of the 2000 draft. Willis is 21 while Webb is 24. The most important factor I believe is the impact Willis made on the Marlins. Without him I highly doubt they'd be over .500 at this point in the season and I know for a fact they wouldn't be anywhere near the wildcard. Webb has done a nice job and been extremely solid during Schilling and Johnsons downtime, but it was other players that stepped up that really made the difference for Arizona. I think i'd have to buck the trend here and go with Willis, but who knows, it could go either way down the stretch.

If Webb played on a team that could score him some runs he would have at least 11-12 wins as of now. I think he is one of the top pitchers in all of baseball this year and in my opinion is leading in the ROY.
