I would have to say it's a toss up.It depends on if you want to play it safe or if you want to take a small risk.Wade Miller has been hot-hot-hot but there is a chance he could slow down,or maybe even slow way down.Kerry Wood,to me,is certain to keep up his pace and will carry a lower ERA and WHIP along with more K's than Miller.If it was me I would go for Wood,but it's all up to you cause both carry high value as of right now.

I'd also go with Wood. True, Miller is hot, but if you look at the last month, Wood has both a significantly better whip and more k's. If your primary concern is wins, you can make an argument for Miller, but overall, Wood is the better choice.

As a bitter Cubs fan, I feel like Wood has never lived up to his potential, and he's unlikely to get many wins the rest of the year as the team self-destructs itself into last place. They seem determined to catch the Brewers for sole occupancy of the cellar, despite the obvious talent they have.

On the other hand, I've never been a big fan of Wade Miller, and he seems destined to end his current hot streak. Wood should give you better ERA, WHIP, and K totals. Miller may produce more Wins.
