Santana is a notoriously slow starter. His ERA last year before the All Star break was almost 4.00 and in April / May 2004 it was over 5.50. His numbers from June onwards the last two seasons are why he is worthy of a 1st round draft pick.
Pettitte on the other hand is only average. He was way over rated in drafts this season based on a career year in 2005. No way he goes close to repeating those numbers and if you can trade him now for around the value you drafted him at (which I doubt) I would recommend doing so.
