For the Cy Young this year..

Here are some general numbers to back up what everyone has been saying. Both pitchers have made 25 starts going into today.

Carpenter: 166.7 in., 14 wins, 139 Ks, 3.51 ERA and 1.14 WHIP

Schmidt...: 178.3 in., 15 wins, 201 Ks, 2.78 ERA and 1.07 WHIP

So, Schmidt goes a little deeper into ballgames. The wins are similar. Schmidt has 62 more Ks (10.14/9 compared to 7.51/9). Schmidt's ERA is 0.73 lower. And, their WHIPs are pretty close. What the standard stat line will not show you however, is that Schmidt has thrown three complete game shutouts (two of them one-hitters) to Carpenter's one CG which was not a shutout.

How does that look JourneyingBraves?

:-P How dare you not agree w/ me! lol

But in all honesty, had Peavy played a full season, we'd be mentioning his name in the same sentneces as Schmidt, Santana, RJ, Ollie, and Zam.

lol i think that he shouldn't be menioned with these guys this year but for next year and keepers for 2005 then, but i do agree with the whole season thing i mean before he got injured he had an NL ERA low and after he came back he was awesome as well

Screw Carpenter, why isn't Pavano bieng considered, after taking a look at his stats I am angered that people aren't giving him a chance.

Pavano has been great, he carried the team early in the season, when they were losing alot of games, I would go to the ballpark thinking "Hey Pavano is pitching, we could win tonight!" but Schmidt and the Unit are just dominating. Unless they falter late it's hard to argue against thoose guys.
Sleeper - Clemens - If the Astros keep this hot streak up he may find himself winning alot of games. (and find himself helping my fantasy team a lot ;-) )

Now I gotta run and try to survive a hurricane the size of Texas. :-t

I agree, I didn't mean I thought he should win it, I meant I find it wierd that he hasn't even been mentioned.
