It is about time isn’t it? So, I begin with the NL Cy Young.
The NL Cy Young is in my opinion much easier to see into the future with than the AL Cy Young race. The candidates are…
Tim Lincecum of the Giants who won in 2009 and 2008 and he’s been an all star for the past three years. This year he has a 3.72 era in the 26 games that he’s played and is 11-8 with 173 strike outs. He’s not exactly having his best season ever. He may look a bit odd while pitching…
but he is quite a pitcher.
The next candidate is Josh Johnson who is 11-5 this year with the Marlins and he has a 2.27 era. He I believe is neck and neck in this race with Ubaldo Jimenez, but Ubaldo will in the end win it, because he’s 17-4 with a 2.66 era and is just pitching spectacular this season. The other candidate is Roy Halladay who will win if something bad suddenly happens to Ubaldo because he’s 16-8 with a 2.16 era.
The AL Cy Young
This race is much more hard to predict, but I have to say although Phil Hughes of the Yankees and David Price of the Rays are considered in the race, this one is definitely going to end up as either CC Sabathia winning as I hope will happen, or Clay Buchholz winning.
Clay is leading the league with a 2.26 era, and has an ok win total with 15-5.
CC is leading the league in wins, 17-5, and games started, 27. He has a decent 3.02 era and I hope and think will win it this year.
The NL MVP
Albert Pujols. That’s all I have to say on the matter. If you disagree, check out his stats
The AL MVP
Miguel Cabrera. And if you disagree, check out his stats
