  • Who are your Cy young award front runners right now?

    AL- Price,Weaver, Verlander

    *I would say Sale but isn't he on a innings pitched limit this year?

    NL- Cain, Dicky, Gio

    How about you all?

    I can't ignore Sale, he's leading the league in ERA (2.11) and ERA+ (203!). I hadn't heard he's on an innings limit, but as long as he meets the criteria to qualify, he's a force to be reckoned with.

    In the NL, Dickey and Gio matched up last night in Washington. Dickey is now 13-1, and Gio's ERA took a hit. He gave up six earned runs in 3.1 innings. His ERA ballooned from 2.93 to .332. I think the CYA is Dickey's to lose at this point.

              I hope RA Dickey keeps it up and wins the NL Cy Young. If not him then Gio G.

              AL is a bit tougher, but im gonna take Jered Weaver.

              Edit: Justin Verlander and Jered Weaver are so close in the numbers its crazy. Chris Sale as well. Ill list some of the stats that jump out at me.

              ................H/9 BB/9 So/9 HR/9 ERA+ WHIP
              Verlander: 6.3 2.0 8.7 0.7 170 .931

              Weaver 6.5 2.0 6.7 0.7 167 .945

              Sale 6.8 2.0 8.3 0.4 203 1.03

              Personally, I think its one of these three, at this point in time.

                In the American League Felix Hernandez might be the "dark horse" quickly making up ground on the perceived leaders in this category. Like in a horse race where the third place horse all of a sudden takes over the lead, and everyone is like "whoah where'd he come from?" In his last seven starts, Felix is 4-0 with a 1.36 e.r.a. In his last three starts, he is 2-1 with a 0.70 e.r.a. Also, he is up to eight games this season with eight or more innings pitched and one or zero earned runs. And he is leading the MLB in strike outs on the season. We'll see how it all plays out and if he can keep up his torrid pace.

                  I would probably go with Matt Cain and Jared Weaver. Chris Sale would be a close 2nd in the AL.

                    Cain and Verlander, IMO. Weaver and Sale have too few innings, and Dickey is a little unproven for my taste to pick at this point.

                      Why is Gio getting mentioned so much? He is clearly behind 1.Dickey 2.Cain IMO

                      In the AL, Sale Weaver Verlander Felix and Price are all contenders

                        In the NL, Dickey deserves it so far, but I'd love to see him falter and get passed by The Horse, Matt Cain.

                            I know who I'm voting for.

                            The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                              Barring injury, I wouldn't count on it.
                              Put it in the books.
