Line of the Day: July 21st, 2011

C.J. Wilson allowed just two hits, a walk and a hit by pitch but ended up on the losing end of a 1-0 game against Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels. It was the fifth complete game of  Wilson's career. Four have come in a losing effort. (video recap)

Line: 8 IP | 2 H | 1 R | 0 ER | 1 BB | 8 K; CG | L

My fantasy perspective: Wilson continues to improve on what was a break-out season as a starter in 2010. This season, he's on pace for 200+ strikeouts due to a 8.08 K/9 ratio and a 22.0 K%. He's also establishing career-best numbers when it comes to limiting walks, allowing 2.82 BB/9 for a 7.7 BB%, leading to a career-best 1.16 WHIP.

Question: Is C.J. Wilson the ace of the Texas Rangers' pitching staff and a legitimate American League Cy Young candidate?
