  • Could a Reliever when the Cy this year?

    Rodney entered Monday with 43 saves and an absurd 0.66 ERA and 0.779 WHIP in 68 innings over 68 appearances. Rodney is having a special season and i know its a long shot for a reliever to win one. But could a Reliever win it this year?

    He also has a 582era+. He has a pretty good chance but I doubt he'll win.

      What you are really asking is if a "closer" can win the CYA this year. A "set up man" or a "long man" will never ever win the CYA because they don't get high save totals.

        Not when the starters are having as good a season as they have been.

          Right -too many high profile starters in the AL having big years (Verlander, Hernandez, Price).

            rodney is having a monster season but to beat the starters his name is just not big enough.
            I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

                You may think he should win, but I highly doubt he will win.

                  He's having a great season, but I'll bet he only gets a handful of votes, if that.
                  They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                    I wish the Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award got more recognition. Relievers are such a big part of the game now that they should also deserve an award that gets recognized as much as the Cy Young does.

                      I never thought relievers should win the CyYoung due to the fact they have the Rolaids Relief Award. It's not as fancy as the Cy Young Award but relievers aren't as special as a starter either.

                        actually MLB has specific awards, including the FAN of the year award
                        that includes the setup man award, the starter and the closer award,
                        the best DH,best batter,best fielder at each position,etc
                        they are call the GIBBY awards
                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Ye...aseball_Awards
                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...aseball_awards

                        Your argument is a valid one that is bought up almost every year
                        for the CYA also the MVP argument is one that is always bought up every year

                        that is the one thing that I hate the most that MLB has yet to change
                        the rules or be more specific on the these two awards

                        I think the CYA should be for most valuable starting pitchers like its namesake (cy young)
                        and the MVP should be the most valuable everyday player that both bats and take the field

                          If Mariano can't get the CY, Rodney won't either.
