Zambrano is better by a bunch. Wilis is a good pitcher but Zambrano is an ace.

go to baseballprospectus.com, Joel Sheehan's Prospectus today from a couple days ago puts forth a good argument why he isn't. If you don't have BP Premium I'll PM you the article because I'm pretty sure I can't post it. (Though you should have BP Premium, a must have for any baseball fan)

I hate Zambrano. Hate him with a passion. But you're a damn fool if you take Willis over a horse like Carlos.

Not really. Everyone in shaker heights thought they were great because their parents were rich.

how about zumaya pitch in the WS, win a RoY, win 22 games to lead the majors, pitch for more then 2 years without an injury (prone problems he has), then lets talk?

Zambrano has been worlds more consistent than Willis while being a total workhorse. I love Willis, but his mechanics have a tendency of unraveling on their own and I'm not quite sure he can survive on his fastball forever.

I take Zambrano by a small margin.

How about Dontrelle start a game in the WS or pitch at least 4 innings before we bring up the WS argument?

They are both awesome, and would love either one on the Mets, but I would take Carlos Zambrano, he is averaging a K per inning and averages about 6 2/3 innings per start. He also has deadly stuff, if he could just get it under control, he would definately be the top pitcher in baseball.

Willis took that team to the world series more then any other player on the team. If he didnt come up and have the spark he did, the marlins dont make the playoffs at all. Or even start their incredible run.

I would take zambrano or willis over verlander or zumaya.
