Johan is WAYYYYYYY better than Kip. I'm sure Cafe people will see Kip's era and think it's close, but i'm not a Kip fan. Besides the fact the Pirates have a horrid offense and so Kip won't win many, his K/BB ratio isn't even 2, his HR/9 is over 1, his walk rate is over 3, and he was lucky on hits per balls in play. That all adds up to a disappointing year for Kip this year, and compared with Johan, it isn't even close.

In our league, the difference between the two is somebody whom was drafted in the 8th round and somebody whom was picked up as a FA (10 team league).

The difference is Santana is a No. 2 or 3 starter on a fantasy staff (and might out-produce some No. 1s), depending on league size. Wells is a No. 4 at best, and probably a 5 or 6 on a good staff or in smaller leagues. I think Santana will put up a better ERA and WHIP than Wells, as well as significantly better wins and Ks.

Santana should be the better guy this year, but other than wins and Ks it'll probably be closer than most people project at this point. Santana will become a really good starter but I'm not so sure that he'll really kill it in his first full year, while Wells has been at it for a while now.
