While one of these pitchers should win the award, I do not expect them to.

In order to figure out who will win, just sort pitchers by the column Wins. Right now, the Cy Youngs this year would be Kenny Rogers and Tom Glavine.

Kenny Rogers will never win the Cy Young after last years idiot moves

Yep, well, now people who are talking about how he is lacking the wins, he has 9 now. He's one behind Halladay, and his other stats are so much better than Halladay's that if a vote were held today it wouldn't even be close. The late start factor is basically nullified now, so now its just a question of whether he can keep it up or not.

It sucks that the Cy Young is influenced so much by win totals. They are the one stat that has no baring on a pitchers ability. Totally reliant on teammates performance.

Three months from now I am gonna look like the Amazing Crescin.

There's still too much baseball left to speculate on the Cy. Liriano has 9 wins already despite being in the bullpen for the first 6 weeks. He has been the most dominate pitcher in the majors since he entered the rotation. If he can end up with 18+ wins, he will definately be in the running for the Cy.

I still don't see Liriano or Santana picking up enough wins to get this thing. We'll see how it goes, though. Lots of baseball left to be played.

Well I didn't say it made any sense, I just said that's how the writers vote.

IMO, Santana is hands down the first half Cy Young winner.
