Yovani Gallardo Does Everything
Gallardo went 14-7 in 2010, setting a new personal high for wins in a single season. He finished the year with 185 innings pitched and notched 200 strikeouts for the second consecutive season (204 K in 2009). He also batted .254/.329/.508 with 10 RBI and 4 HR. He was selected for the All-star game and won the Silver Slugger award for NL pitchers. He was also the first pitcher ever to homer off of Randy Johnson. Basically, the guy is just awesome. The way he's looked so far tells me he might be primed for a truly special year.
