    But, yeah, dude - Wins rule! Everybody knows they'd rather have Aaron Cook than Johan Santana...
    There is a good chance if Santana spent his career with the Rockies that he wouldn't even be in this poll.

    Volquez won again! It's a total surprise!
    Like Josh Hamilton in the Rangers lineup. Excellent beginning in the major.
    Code:
    CYP
    8.4	Cliff Lee	Indians	6	0	0.81
    4.3	Ervin Santana	Angels	6	0	2.02
    2.8	Zack Greinke	Royals	4	1	1.8
    1.7	Shaun Marcum	Blu J	4	2	2.59
    1.3	Joe Saunders	Angels	6	0	2.61
    
    5.2	Edinson Volquez	Reds	5	1	1.06
    3.4	Brandon Webb	Diam	7	0	2.49
    3.4	Carlos Zambrano	Cubs	5	1	1.8
    2.5	Jake Peavy	Padres	4	1	2.22
    2.2	Tim Lincecum	Giants	3	1	1.41
    It's too early for the predicting Cy winner, but it's interesting to see who are candidates now.
    Obviously, E.Santana, Greinke, Marcum, Saunders can't be on this pace later.

    It's certainly possible if you have a catcher who calls a great game and that is Paul Bako. He is by far the best game-caller I have seen on the Reds in it seems like forever. Even Aaron Harang has improved greatly with Bako behind the plate. I always expected Harang's ERA to be around 3.50 (at least in Cincy) but before yesterday, he was below 3.00. Plus, Mario Soto has been working exclusively with Volquez and Cueto and Soto had some pretty nasty stuff.

    Greg Maddux went from 6-14 with a 5.61 ERA to 18-8 with 3.18. It's certainly possible.

    Today was the first game where I've watched Volquez for an entire game. His stuff is so freakish nasty.

    But, being a ranger fan as well, I watched him pitch in the minors a lot. And, when he was on his game, he was, hands down, one of the most dominant pitchers I had ever seen pitch.

    When his stuff was on, it was nasty. I predict that when all is said and done, he will be a Cy Young Award Winner before his career is over.

    He's a write-in. With so many options this early players do get forgotten. Making a poll this large is easy until you do one.

    If the thread creator would like anyone added, just let me know.

    Wow, it's pretty amazing that Peavy still doesn't have any votes. I think that says how tough the competition is in the NL Cy Young race, and also tells you how highly people think of Webb.

    I voted for Bedard & Haren...but it was really close between Haren/Peavy.
