NL Cy Young?

Postby GSes » Fri May 07, 2004 11:40 pm

We all predicted before the season

Prior
Wood
Oswalt
Schmidt
Beckett

After 1 full month

its a pair of old timers Randy Johnson & Rodger Clemems that are right there w/ Wood & Oswalt as the top in the NL.

Clemens is 6-0

Johnson leads the majors in K's, and already has 9 tonite.

Everyone thought Johnson & Clemens might be great, but no one expected this (especially w/ clemens) in 2004.

Well in my opinion after the all star break, Oswalt and Wood are going to battle for Cy Young and Kerry Wood is going to end up getting it.

I hope Oswalt gets the Cy Young, but it just doesn't seem like it's going to happen, Oz is a great pitcher, awsome curve ball and fastball, I just think Wood is slightly better, but i'm praying that, thatt's not true lol.

I like Woods chances this year also. He'll win 20 for the first time, I believe.

After the all star break, their will be 3 people competing for the Cy Young Oswalt, Wood, and Brad Penny. I don't really think that Beckett has a chance, he never really has done good and a season and isn't off to exactly a grewat start so far, but he will turn it around, and have a good season, at least the best season he has ever had, don't expect much from Zambrano, but he does have some nasty stuff. As for the American League, I said Tim Hudson or Bartolo Colon and i'm sticking with them, probably Hudson, Bartolo has really looked shaky in his last few starts, but he will bounce back and make it close on who gets the A. L. Cy Young.



Go Rangers, 2004-2005 World Series Champs, i'm feeling it baby! ;-D

i dont think that the Big Unit and especially Clemens can quite keep it up at their current pace and as for Beckett and Schmidt, their teams might not even make the playoffs and most likely wont win enough to be serious Cy candidates. Prior is obviously out. so that still leaves Wood, Oswalt and maybe Zambrano. Zambrano is not quite as "studly" as the other two and his inexperience may be something of a disadvantage down the road. and between Wood and Oswalt it might very well come down to which team does better...
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

I gotta disagree with that. Throw out his Arizona outing (7 ER in 5 IP) and I believe he's only given up 3 ER all year. If the Cubs can score for him, he could win and win big. Groundball pitchers and Wrigley are a great match.
