I'd give the edge to Oswalt - pitches in an easier league and division, and I think Halladay is dealing with an injury

I give the slight edge to Oswalt because he K's more. Really close IMO.

Oswalt. Halladay's declining K's make him less valuable.

Oswalt's K's haven't been what I'd call steady, either. Other than steadily declining over the past half decade.
K/9:
6.7689 - 2006
6.8517 - 2005
7.7508 - 2004
7.6355 - 2003
8.0343 - 2002

Looks like Halladay's K/9 has been more steady over the years (albeit lower), except for taking a pretty good sized dip in 06. Neither are anything to scream about.

The funny thing is the K/BB graph. Just look at Halladay's... makes me dizzy lol. At least Oswalt seems to be on a steady increase in the category lately.

oswalt, mostly because he is in the NL and isn't as injury prone.

I prefer Oswalt by a slight margin. I'm not quite sure what's alarming: Oswalt's steady K/9 decline or Halladay's K setback in '06. At any rate, I'd lean with Oswalt in the more pitching-friendly NL.
