AL Cy Young - Who will win; Who should win?

Postby Izenhart » Mon Sep 24, 2012 8:17 am

Rather than argue one or the other, let's talk about who we think will win and also who we would vote for if we had a vote.

Right now I'd vote for Chris Sale. I'm completely biased though, he's carried my teams this year. I think Verlander will win though. Innings pitched seem to have a lot of weight with voters, and he's got slightly better numbers across the board over Felix. Besides those three, who else do you think has a shot?

I think it should be Verlander, but Price will probably win. Price is certainly a good choice, too. Sale is close but he's pitched over 40 fewer innings than Verlander, and that's very significant since the quality on a per-inning ratio is similar between the two of them. Felix is great too but he has such a huge advantage pitching in Safeco that he'd need to have much better numbers than Verlander, which he doesn't.

Should win: Verlander (don't think it's all that close)
Will win: Price if he gets to 20 wins, otherwise probably still Price but I think Verlander has a shot.

The race will come down to Price and Verlander. Really no one else is in consideration to win it.

What if Weaver and his no-no reaches 20 wins and Price does not? Not enough Ks?

He's not even going to get to 200 innings. The time on the DL hurt him, IMO.

It's funny that Eckersley was an afterthought in the CY/MVP in 1990 when he posted a 0.61 ERA and 48 saves. But in 1992 he posts a 1.91 ERA and 51 saves and easily wins both in a landslide. Those 3 saves really made a huge difference :-° I guess you don't realize how far the voting has come until you compare it to how fantastically ludicrous is used to be. It's still terrible, but not nearly to the same extent.
