Yu Darvish as well. I've seen the kid pitch, he's got potential.

I think it would be easier if this question would be rephrased as: "Which pitcher and batter will have the best season.." Because I would go with Darvish as the pitcher and Aoki as the hitter

Then that would have been too easy , it's like the MVP topic, all players are included in the discussion.
