Wow, the splitter is his best pitch.

The guy has been insane. I could see an argument for either Haren or Beckett starting the ASG. At this pace, there isn't anyone else really in the conversation for the AL Cy Young, though we all know Johan is going to go nuts soon.

Yes, I said they should hang on to HARDEN and I'm serious about that too....If you have ever watched him pitch you would know that he is probably the best talent outside of Liriano(now hurt) and Felix hernandez.....Guy has a 100 mph fastball that he maintains throughout the game, devasting change, split and slider and he has command of all of his pitches..I know he hasn't been healthy the past couple of years but that doesn't change the fact that when he is healthy, he could be that shut down ace that every good team has.

Harden is the Mark Prior of the AL. Electric, dominant, nasty, filthy, etc, etc, when he's healthy. But he will spend more time on the DL than on the mound. Hopefully he can rebound though and not end up like Prior has.
