As with Verlander in the AL, you wouldn't go wrong giving the nod to the Phillies' Roy Halladay. He's pitching almost exactly as well as he did a year ago, when he won his second Cy Young Award. But Jurrjens leads the NL in wins (12) and ERA (1.87), and that's a hard combination to win an argument against. Jurrjens acknowledges "everybody knows what happened to Ubaldo (Jimenez) last year," suggesting he won't be able to maintain his first-half performance. But he's the real thing.
