AL Cy Young

    Eh, I don't really care.

    I like Sabathia just fine, but he's more of a mercenary than someone I'm going to get all worked up about.

    In '96 I was pulling for Pettitte over Hentgen. But I was more of a fan of Pettitte, and even though he was only in his second season, you had the feeling that Pettitte might not have another chance to win a Cy Young.

    Sabathia's already got a Cy Young. So, while I'll root for him, I won't be broken up if he doesn't win it.

    I can't believe how little David Price is being mentioned here. His ERA is a third of a run better than Sabathia's, he has one fewer strikeout, and is 15-5 as opposed to Sabathia's 16-5.

    Price absolutely belongs in the top three, ahead of Sabathia for sure.

    Are we saying who we think will win at the end of the season or who should win if the season ended today?

    Part of why I think Sabathia will win is because of his history of finishing strong.

    But then it's just a guess. No one's wrapped it up yet.

    I'm sure different people are using different criteria. I'm going with the information we have now.

    Felix demolished the Yankees tonight. 8 IP 11 K 0 runs.

    Any stats put up against the Indians shouldn't count for Cy Young consideration. When Armando Galarraga, who let us not forget, has spent two stints in the minors this year, can retire 42 of your hitters in a row, there is something terribly wrong with your team.

    Not to make trouble, but IMO Hernandez, C. C. and the Red Sox pair are all worthy winners and whichever wins I don't think there should be a bitch coming from anybody. Of course, Lester didn't help himself last night. I do wonder why August seems to be the big month for award arguments. Is it the same way August is the month for stupider-than-usual political arguments.

    That's a hell of a line. Was it good enough to earn a win?

    I'm sure he about had a heart attack after being given a first inning lead, but yes, it was.

    I watched the first few innings, but it was over three batters in.

    I was just trying to point out that when you pitch as well as he did, you usually also get a Win.

    Sabathia has 4 of his 16 wins against the godawful 0rioles and 2 of 16 against the Royals
