    --Dennis Lamp ends his season by claiming his 20th win. He finishes 20-6, 2.45. Lamp gives up some innings to the other CYA contenders, but he is almost half a run ahead in ERA and did that calling Tiger Stadium home.

    The Cy Young award is much tougher to grade than the MVP award with different pitchers staking their claim in different stat categories. Here;s my vote:

    1 - Blyleven
    2 - Reuss
    3 - Lamp
    Dan
    CKL - Maloy Boys
    P2PKL - Detroit Tigers

    1) Dennis Lamp: ERA champ by almost half a run (with half his games at Tiger Stadium). He held together a shaky rotation (20 wins for a team with nobody else in double figures) to lead the Knights to the division title.
    2) Bill Gullickson: 2nd in ERA (also in a tough park, the Kingdome). Pitched alot more innings than Lamp and would have claimed the top slot if he could have gotten one more win.
    3) Bert Blyleven: had virtually identical season to Gullickson and might have ranked ahead if Gullickson didn't have a the hometown advantage
    --Larry Gura was the closest miss. Jerry Ruess might have made the ballot if he hadn't returned from his sabbatical to pick up a late loss. Jack Morris lead the league in IP and won his 20th in the final series to nail down the Legends division title. Rick Langford tied for the wins title and provided 250 more than solid innings for the Gamblers. Fernando Valenzula was really surging in the 2nd half and was on the verge of making my ballot before getting knocked around in his last start.

    1. Dennis Lamp, Knights – Led all pitchers with 20+ starts in ERA (2.45) and was fifth in WHIP (1.14) while posting a sparkling 20-6 record.
    2. Bert Blyleven, Boys – Another fine season helped keep the Boys in contention to the end.
    3. Jerry Reuss, Lumberjaxx – A homer vote for the Jaxx best starter. 20-4 record, 3.13 ERA.
    You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton
