AL Cy Young - Who will it be?

Postby disgruntledjetsfan » Tue Aug 21, 2012 11:15 pm

Since we have an NL Cy Young thread, thought this was only appropriate.


The way I see it, it's a 4 way race (unlike the NL which is a lot more wide open) between:

Verlander
Weaver
Price
King Felix


After tonight, I think Price is in the lead. His ERA is awesome and all his poor starts (for the most part) came at the very beginning of the season. THoughts?

For me it's really close between Verlander, Felix and Price. I think I'm going to lean very slightly towards Verlander right now, it could change since it's close, but I feel like Price is going to win since he's well ahead of the other two in Wins.

It's very close. WHIP and strike outs are the two most important stats for me. Sale and Weaver are about 40 IP behind so it's Verlander for me.

Forgot to include Sale, he would be the 5th guy for me. I don't see him having much of a chance b/c I'm thinking he won't be as strong the rest of the season as the other guys.


Over the last 30 days Price has thrown 44 innings, has 47 Ks, 3 Ws, a 1.23 ERA, and a 0.77 WHIP. Just NASTY 8-o

I give Verlander a slight edge so far.

Verlander for me as well, but If Price finishes strong it'll be a toss up.

I think Price is probably in the lead right now, will likely come down to him and Verlander.
