It's a no contest, IMO. Santana by far. Even with his struggles early on, he's been BY FAR the most dominant pitcher of the entire MLB this season.

I don't think Rivera should even be on the list personally. If he hadn't fallen apart recently, Mulder had my vote. Sure Kurt !+) Schilling has been the "consistent" guy, but he also has Pedro in the rotation and a great lineup. Therefore, by the same argument that Sheff nor Rolen can win the MVP, he is out IMO. I'll give you Santana sucked the first two months, but he's carried that rotation ever since. Therefore I think Santana should get the award.

And what he said. He's also a dominating lefty, which is pretty rare, so I'm not sure if that should be or is be factored in, but IMO it should be.

It's true Schilling has been more consistent over the season, but Santana still has the better stats overall for this season.

Santana:
2.76 ERA
0.92 WHIP
18 Wins
6 Losses
1 CG
1 SHO
240 K's
.193 BAA

Schlling:
3.35 ERA
1.09 WHIP
19 Wins
6 Losses
3 CG
0 SHO
177 K's
.248 BA

The stats show that Santana has been a much more dominating pitcher. The only thing Schilling has on Santana is the CGs, but Santana does have the CG Shutout going for him. Santana is just barely under Schilling's win total, while pitching for a team with a much weaker lineup.

Santana's the clear choice, there should be no argument about it. ;-D
