That thread's title was "Who is the NL Cy Young so far?"

In your original post, you put forth these statistics:

Ubaldo Jimenez (10-1, 80.1 IP, 0.78 ERA, 70 K, 2.62 FIP, 3.51 xFIP, 2.9 WAR)
Roy Halladay (7-3, 86 IP, 1.99 ERA, 70 K, 2.39 FIP, 2.91 xFIP, 3.2 WAR)
Adam Wainwright (7-3, 79 IP, 2.28 ERA, 77 K, 2.73 FIP, 3.16 xFIP, 2.4 WAR)
Tim Lincecum (5-2, 71.2 IP, 3.14 ERA, 83 K, 2.82 FIP, 3.18 xFIP, 2.1 WAR)
Mike Pelfrey (8-1, 71.2 IP, 2.39 ERA, 52 K, 3.38 FIP, 3.88 xFIP, 1.5 WAR)
Jaime Garcia (5-2, 61.1 IP, 1.32 ERA, 51 K, 3.03 FIP, 3.73 xFIP, 1.6 WAR)
Josh Johnson (6-2, 77 IP, 2.10 ERA, 77K, 2.66 FIP, 3.25 xFIP, 2.4 WAR)


Clearly, Ubaldo was the NL Cy Young at that point in the season, but most people assumed correctly that he wouldn't keep an ERA and WHIP lower than 1.00 the entire season. I don't know why you're patting yourself on the back now.

That didn't seem to be clear for the people who voted for Halladay or Johnson.

Because I'm always right, was right about this specifically, and I enjoy doing so. I'm surprised you haven't figured that out by now.

85% of the poll voted overwhelmingly for Ubaldo... at the beginning of the poll, it was closer to 90-95%. I think you may have forgotten just how dominant Ubaldo's 1st half was, and you did ask the question, "Who is the best NL pitcher SO FAR?"

Your faith in PEDs and sabermetrics is disturbing. You lack true knowledge, young padawan.

It wasn't the poll question that people were wrong about. It was the discussion that followed in the thread.
