royals are no pushover with berroa, sweeney, beltran, and juangon. id go with beckett....he just has much better pitches than santana, ive always been a fan of a curve over a slider and therein lies the difference between santana and beckett.

Is he really more durable? There are concerns that he can't handle 200+ innings.

I prefer Beckett. His stuff is as good as almost anyone's. I think his blisters are over with, with his new cream.

how would Webb fit in here ?

i think i'd rank it:

Webb
Beckett
Santana

not sure, but i think these are the best 3 "sleeper" sp's right now (if you can call them that)

I say Santana first, Webb second, and Beckett 3rd.

Sure Josh had a great post-season, but don't overlook the lefthanded Pedro (Santana) and Brandon Webb, who some say has the best sinker in baseball. With more run support, Webb should be great like last year but with more wins. Santana won't have as many wins but probably more K's.

I'd go with Beckett over Santana. I just think he's got a higher ceiling.

I wouldn't call Santana a sleeper. He busted way out last year. If Twins' management doesn't do something stupid as they did the entire first half of last year, then he's my guy out of the three.
