This roll he's been on has been amazing but lets not forget his first half was not Cy Young like. Who knows maybe this will continue and he'll be the one with a Johan Santana 2nd half; he's got an ERA and WHIP around 1.00, maybe slightly less, over the last month. However, the point is he wasn't anything overly special this season just a month ago, so it's kind of early make such bold Cy Young claims.
I don't think its too early to make "bold Cy Young claims" about Webb.
He did win the award last year didn't he???
A streak like this by the reigning Cy Young winner gives us plenty of reasons to start talking about a repeat.
