I personally think that if you have double digit losses then you shouldn't get the award like Wainwright or Halladay or Pavano and if you have a huge Era. like Arroyo it's almost 4.00.

So for the National League I would have to say Ubaldo Jimenez should be the Cy Young award winner this year.

and for the American League I would have to say Jon Lester should be the Cy Young award winner this year.

Now most of you will say that i picked Lester because of the Sox ... not true he's been a consistant starter all year for a team with injuries all over the place and he's close enough to Sabathia in alot of the stats and in fact has a lot more strike outs then Sabathia. Halladay is a 20 game winner in the NL Sabathia is in the AL but those i think clearly don't make you a CY Young award winner.

Look at 2007 Josh Beckett was the only 20 game winner in the majors since 2005 and Sabathia got the award and he was 19 -8 with a higher Era. so wins don't mean anything

my Picks

Jimenez : NL

Lester : AL

CC and Roy...pretty easy this year if you ask me.

Two pitchers with the most wins thus far, pitching for the best teams in each league, with arguably the best numbers...

Not to mention Halladay threw a perfect game, and CC has been the only pitcher for the Yankees who has been consistent all year and remained healthy (until this point, at least).

Matt Cain.... end of story.

Ubaldo for the NL.

He is more than likely going to have 20+ wins, and only 6 or 7 losses. He pitches more than half is game at Coors, a huge hitters park. He pitched a no hitter. Not even a question if you ask me. Will all our injuries this year, he has been a bright spot on our starting rotation.

CC hands down in the AL.

He has been very consistent and was the first 20 game winner.

It "should" be Felix in the AL and Halladay for the NL..

But probably will be CC and Halladay due to the fact the Mariners give Felix no run support..

CC and Ubaldo. I haven't seen Ubaldo this year, but judging from the numbers and the ERA in Colorado, he should get it.

09-22-2010, 01:10 PM
I would probably put Latos in instead of Arroyo, but even he won't win it.

I would say CC and Halladay/Ubaldo. Halladay has been a beast this year and Ubaldo has put up similar numbers despite pitching at Coors Field and has lost less (two of Ubaldo's losses were 1-0 losses as well).

09-22-2010, 01:31 PM
I think CC and Doc will win it this year due to the fact that they play for two of the largest market teams in the nation. I do think CC does deserve it though but I am bias since I am a Yankees fan (I live in New Jersey). But I think Ulbado should win it for the NL although his team hasn't been really backing him each time he starts. He started the season so hot and now he has kind of fallen off but I think that's due to the lack of run support.

My heart wants to say Lester but I think it will be CC for the AL. For the NL I think it will be Haley.

LOL @ Bronson Arroyo being mentioned as a potential Cy Young candidate. He has been good for us over the years but his numbers are nowhere near Cy Young level.

The NL Cy Young should go to Roy Halladay, unless the Rockies win the NL West, then I would have to vote for Ubaldo Jimenez. No idea who should win it for the AL, though I suspect it will be CC because he is a Yankee :(

CC and Ubaldo.

The argument begins for Doc Vs. Hemi, but as its been stated, Ubaldo has great numbers pitching at Coors Field. If playing at Coors prevents people from winning offensive awards then logically it should boost them in defensive awards, IMO.

you mean baseball is still going on? :confused:

09-22-2010, 05:21 PM
trevor cahill of the a's should win in the al...batting avg against of .210...whip of 1.07....era of 2.81...and is 17-7 for the a's

if clay buchholz hadn;t gotten hurt he might have a legit shot as well...16-7 with an era of 2.39 pitching in the american league east...that's insane

09-22-2010, 06:07 PM
As much as I would love for it to be Ubaldo and Price, I think CC and Halladay have got it. Ubaldo still has a shot, but he's gonna have to be very dominant in the rest of his starts, which he hasn't really done in a while.

Well it is all Halladay's now.............
