    The trend the last few years has been to ignore closers for in CY voting for the most part.
    In 2009, not a single closer received a vote.

    But it wasn't too many years ago that Francisco Rodriguez could draw some heavy votes.
    Trevor Hoffman was the last serious challenger, in 2006, coming in 2nd, getting 48% of the Share.
    Eric Gagne was the last to win in 2003.

    I don't know if you put any stock in WAR, but Rivera has TEN seasons with a higher WAR than Rodney has now.

    When I saw the title of this thread my initial thought was that either Craig Kimbrel or Aroldis Chapman's name would be mentioned. But when I found out that the person in question is some guy named "Rodney," I have to admit that I was a bit surprised. I have no idea who he is. But admittedly I'm impressed with those numbers. That being said, to answer the question I don't think he'll win the Cy Young. As great of a year as Rodney's having, the best AL pitchers of this year are doing too well to allow it to slip in to a reliever's hands.

    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

    He's having a great season, but I'll bet he only gets a handful of votes, if that.

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

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