    For me, it's Peavy's to lose but Penny is running strong. September performances will decide it.

    Right now, it's Peavy -- easily. When a dude is leading the league in wins (16), ERA (2.43) and strikeouts (210), it's a no-brainer.

    Can't disagree with a Triple Crown. Not many guys have done it.

    Just 18 since 1900 and five since 1985. I think Clemens immediately. While he was with the Blue Jays, he was disgusting.

    And only the Unit (in 2002) has done it in the NL since Gooden, too. Before that, you're going back to Carlton in '72, then Koufax.

    Santana did it in the AL last year, Pedro in '99, the two Clemens years in Toronto, then back to Prince Hal in 1945.

    Amazing how rare that feat is.

    Peavy is an easy choice at the moment. Hopefully the Padres won't screw around with moving up any more starts to short rest. He has always been horrible doing that and predictably has his worst start of the year.

    I like how much debate we've got going in this one. Thanks a lot, Jake.

    When a guy leads the league in wins, ERA and strikeouts, has a 1.06 WHIP and a .207 BAA on a playoff-bound team ... what is there to debate?

    Absolutely nothing, and that's why I blame Peavy.

    But what's his WHIP!?
