I truly think he will. He has settles down nicely after a rough first few starts.

He will be a contender for sure if he remains on this pace.

the other question is can he make the allstar team. believe it or not it is a pretty legit arguement.

say he wins his next starts and goes either 7-1 or 8-1 he can be an all star and still missing half of the season

I think the AS game is pushing it...

But possible...

he wont make the all star team, but ROY is certainly attainable

I don't think he'll have enough IP to make the All-Star Game.

If he keeps this up, he should be a lock for ROY though.

its not really out of the question

a starter that is 8-1 with an era under 3.00 and more k's than innings

is a pretty much lock at the all-star game

it may be a lock...

but Pudge will start...that's 1 marlin

Lowell will be a reserve...thats 2 marlins

it's unlikely to have 3 players from a (now)4th place team in the AS game....

now if we make a run, then definitely

I think Alex has to be a lock at this point...

Renteria and Furcal would most likely be voted over him(by the coaches)

If he keeps giving performances like tonight he'll run away with rookie of the year. It's still early though.

Yeah I have noticed a certain "Marlins4lyf" absent from the boards lately. I made the half-joking suggestion that the Marlins bring up Willis a couple months ago and he had a pretty good laugh about it.

I won't pretend I predicted anything like this, but my argument was how the hell does anyone on this board know whether a kid is "ready" or not? Some people can handle it at different ages, and sometimes age doesn't even matter, talent just takes over. I don't know whether the kid can keep this up, but it sure will be fun to watch.

That describes Willis...

This kid really does have the velocity that Randy Johnson shows on his pitches... And that's no joke...

And don't sit here and tell me he doesn't...

This kid threw a change-up today that even on TV looked 90 MPH, and I was completely shocked when it turned out to be an 84 MPH change...This kid has some great velocity, and will be something special.

If he wins NL ROY, we better lock his @ss up relitively cheap while we still can...

Yea i think he will win it but There are some competition out there but the way Willis is pitching he may take the Award this year. He has a very low ERA. and his record is 4-1! He has to win it...
