    Price for me best season of his career and has been extreamly extreamly dominant this year.

        I'm leaning toward King Felix, my theory being that it's easier to win a lot of games and put up impressive numbers if your teammates score a lot of runs and play good defense behind you. Felix Hernandez, and R.A. Dickey in the NL don't have that luxury.

          The Mariner's have turned a much better than average % of balls in play into outs. The Tigers are the team with awful defense.

            Price doesn't tend to get that great of run support but when he does he just wins.

              Yet Dickey still managed to win 18 games, which I why I feel it should never go to anyone with less than 15-17 wins.

                I gave the nod to Price as well.

                  Price! He's been pitching extremely well this year, and he absolutely OWNS my Jays... I think he's undefeated against Toronto in his career. Nice to see him beating up on other teams as well.

                    I'm an M's fan, but I'm picking Price here.

                      Verlander.
                      Had Kuroda gotten some run support, he would easily be in the discussion as well.

                      Oops I misread the question as "who should" whereas the question was "who will"...
                      In that case, I think it should be Verlander, but not sure if he will...

                        Things might change with 4 to 5 outings left, but as of right now...Price, barely.

                          price, verlander and hernandez could all still win it.
                          It depends on who finishes the strongest. in a tight race a strong finish will often decide even if the overall stats are equal since the voters remember the "clutch time" at the end the most. if anyone struggles at the end he will be out.

                            I wonder if price gets to 20 wins or even 19 like in 2010 if he will still be snubbed.

                              I fail to see how Felix figures in this scenario. I can see Price (Rays are 5.5 games back in the WC) or Verlander (Tigers are 5 games back) having the potential for some "clutch" wins down the stretch, but I can't see that for Hernandez, with his team in last place and 15 games out of the Wild Card. The only "clutch" wins he could muster now are to pad his own W-L record, not do anything for his team.
