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.


This.

And even though I agree voters are smarter today than they used to be, the public is not. I'm watching the Yankees game and a poll was cast to the fans - who should win the CY Young in the AL. 34% said Weaver should win, 32% said Price. Verlander was a distant third at 18%, Sale at 10% and Rodney finished 5th with 8%.

So Price, Verlander, or Weaver? I think it'll be Price... He's been the best down the stretch

Price wins. I said it before the season started though, so I'm a tad biased :-D
