His only other competition is Curt Schilling and Mark Mulder. But Santana has a sub 2.80 ERA and leads the AL in strikeouts. He has 18 wins and has been the only consistant pitcher on that staff other than Radke. Schilling has Lowe and Martinez and a super pumped line up. Mulder has Zito and Hudson to pick him up. Santana has Radke. Radke is a great pitcher but is no where near the talent of Pedro or Hudson.
