i agree. right now, if the season ended, you'd have to give it to cliff lee. hypothetically, if he finishes say 20-6 with a 3.00 ERA, or somewhere near that, he's gotta be a front runner, regardless of how good we think he might be.

Halladay is no more an injury risk than CC or any other pitcher for that matter. He would be my pick to win it. Cliff Lee may go close to 20 wins which will certainly put him in the frame but I don't see him holding his ERA below 3.50 before the season is out.



How is Halladay an Injury risk? His only two major injuries have been a line drive to the shin and the removal of his appendix.

Cliff Lee wins it if you stop the season right now. People are so skeptical about this guy. But that K/BB ratio is still unbelievable. And if he can keep those ratio there, he has a real chance.

cliff lee has started to come back to earth and he won't stop falling either. dicek was my pick at the beginning of the season and i'm still sticking with him despite the dl stint.

Lee has come back to earth? You mean he won't pitch with an ERA in the 1's all season long? People, Lee had a couple so-so starts. So what? It happens to everybody. But its not like he got bombed. Anyway, I just think people are mad they didn't grab Lee when they had the chance and he went to other owners. The pessimism seems like sour grapes.

Dice K is a joke for the Cy Young.

Kazmir sadly will not win it because he plays in Tampa and honestly we do not get any respect because of it.
He has a good shot but keep that in mind.

So my pick to win it is Beckett. but most deserving in the end i think will be Kazmir.

I don't see Dice-K winning it, he's still walking a lot of guys and I think he could have a bad 2nd half.

I'm just not a big Dice-K believer.

I'm not projecting out to the rest of the season, but if the season ended today, a guy with a record of 8-0, an ERA of 2.53, and a slightly elevated WHIP of 1.30 would be in the discussion. He wouldn't take the hardware because of his relatively light innings and his K/BB ratio, but considering that the two primary #s that sportswriters really look at is Wins-Losses and ERA, his candidacy at this point would be anything but a joke.

0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
