    Wang should at least be a choice. He has the most wins in the majors since 2005. He's usually in the top five in voting aswell. At the very least he should be a choice.

    I'd take 17-20 wins and a 125 ERA+ from anybody.

    After Apr,22nd the best current starters /CYP/

    Code:
    AL

    Cliff Lee	7.83    3	 0	0.40
    Zack Greinke	0.21 	3	0	1.24
    Fel Hernandez  -0.62	2	0	1.47

    Ben Sheets	4.25	3	0	0.96
    John Smoltz	3.37	3	0	0.56

    CYP = (10*W-2*L + SO + IP - 30*(ERA+WHIP)) / GS/2

    No, predicting who will win the Cy Young award shouldn't be based on the first couple starts of the season. There are some homers as yourself on the site, but most of the guys in the Yankee forum aren't dense -- as opposed to the people I was talking about.
    agreed
    predicting is about the future

So I guess in your eyes, the people who are posting stats of pitchers, and predicting how much wins they will total, or if their earlier prediction were right or wrong is "pretty ignorant". Also, I could've sworn that this website were populated by homer Yankee fans. I guess next time, I won't base my opinions on just 2 or 3 Yankee fans because that would be pretty ignorant.

    edit: Verlander has now pitched 19&1/3 innings for that 6.52 ERA. Rough start but he should come around. Even with a complete game shutout his ERA would be 4.61
    I'm not saying that he is going to go out and throw a shutout, but with a few good starts, his ERA will plummet.

    .... just a guess though.
