Are you sure Santana will stay healthy all year?
Right, you can't be sure either way. You could look at their ages....or you could look at is as RJ has had many seasons of high innings, and Santana is coming off of his first season with a large amount of IP. Arm troubles? RJ's health doesn't really bother me, and I only own him in one league (not my money league, either). I did advocate taking RJ over Santana though, and I still think he'll turn out to be the more valuable of the two.
I will admit that the groin injury is a little scary though, hopefully he comes back healthy, as he's one of the greatest pitchers we'll ever have a priviledge to see.
