That Barry Zito thread got me thinking, which active pitchers do you think have the best chances at the HOF?

Excluding guys like Randy Johnson finishing their careers.

I was thinking the front runners were Johan and Roy Halladay. What do you guys think their chances are?

Just looking at the guys in the early 30s I would think the best bets would be Santana, Halladay, Sabathia and Oswalt. They all have a decent shot to get over 250+ Wins (depending on health and durability could push 275-300), at least one Cy young award (except for Oswalt who is constantly top 5) and should be the among the career active leaders in basically every major category remaining after the current class of older pitchers retire.

Oswalt will be an interesting case since I don't think he'll reach stats historically considered HOF worthy but is good enough in comparison to the other pitchers of this era that he might set new standards for making it.
