Radke by a long shot. His ERA won't be as low as last year obviously but it will be lower than whatever Freddy can muster up in US Cellular. WHIP is no contest, Radke always has a great WHIP. W will be even and Freddy will get more K's. Not even a contest in my mind though. The difference in WHIP is huge and Freddy can't come close to compensating for it with his K's.
The bonus about getting a guy like Radke is that you can go out and get somebody who is strong in ERA but might have a bad WHIP. ie: Brandon Webb. Between those two you have a 1.28 WHIP and 3.80 ERA over 400+ IP and you didn't have to spend a high pick to get it.
Whenever it comes down to comparing a KO pitcher and a finesse pitcher, the KO pitcher is probably over-rated. Same goes for comparing HR hitters to other hitters. K's and HR's are glamourized and over-valued in most drafts. Chicks dig the long ball and strikeouts; don't be a chick.
