I'm surprised the voters got this one right.

Wow I can't believe the writers are getting this right finally. Unbelievable season from Lincecum and equally unbelievable how quickly he has come along. Hopefully he can stay healthy and win many more Tim Lincecums in the future.

"It's funny because toward the end of the season, in early September, I was thinking Lincecum would be in my top two," De Luca said. "I thought Webb's victories (22) stood out to me more than anything, and Lincecum didn't have the victories. Twenty victories was a big deal. We had a stretch there where no one was hitting 20."


Figures. ;-7

Wow! I can't believe they got it right and didn't give it to the SP with the most wins. Maybe there is hope after all.
