AL Cy Young

It better be Kluber. Not only does he have better overall numbers and even though they fell a little flat, when his team needed the most, he delivered:

Last 5 starts

Wins 5

Loss 0

IP 40.1

H 32

K 54

ERA 1.12

 

When Hernandez team needed him most?

Last 4 starts

Wins 0

Loss 1

IP 24.2

H 21

K 32

ERA 2.19

 

Not bad, but not even close to Kluber. However, he knows the race is close and he's going to be giving it all against a possible SLC lineup tomorrow.

AL Cy Young for 2014 has been King Felix's to lose for most of the second half now.

 

and Kluber may have come from behind today to win it in a very close vote.

 

I say the votes stack up this way:

 

1. Kluber 2 King Felix (in a very close vote) 3. distant third, perhaps 4th: Sale  4.) Weaver (Weaver's 18 wins on the team with the best record in baseball may give him enough votes to edge out Sale for third......

 

the problem is sort of like that with King Felix and Kluber for 1st and 2nd -- Felix has been the presumed front runner and winner for most of the season now, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy despite how much Kluber has come on here in the second half.

 

Well, Sale was in the Cy Young mix for a good part of the first half of the season and then fell off in the second half -- the fact he was in the Cy Young race early while Weaver was missing starts and then Weaver had some less than quality starts was inconsistent before righting the ship late and stepping up when Halos rotation guys went down.  So Sale's quick start will likely be remembered more than his second half fade and he will probably finish third ahead of Weaver who will get some votes.

Sale

Kluber

Felix

 

I just can't bring myself to pick anyone other than Sale. He's been too Kershaw-like. Yeah, his numbers aren't quite at Kershaw's level but they're darn close, and he pitches in a harder league and ballpark.

 

Sale doesn't have a chance with 174 IP.

Now it gets interesting.

 

Felix pitching tomorrow with Seattle's season on the line...but the Halos will likely do what they did tonight and pull starters midway through the game, perhaps even give a few of them the day off. Would Felix dominating a Triple-A lineup without regulars(and gettign the win) sway voters over Kluber?

 

Regardless of what the Halos throw out, if Felix pitches well and gets the win, you gotta think it will be part of the process in quite a few voters minds

It could go to either Felix or Kluber at this point. They are both deserving. If Felix bombs out tomorrow ... it is likely Kluber's, but Felix would really have to bomb out.

 

Felix will likely end with more IP, lower BB/9, lower ERA,lower WHIP, lower batting average against, lower ERA-, lower xFIP.

 

Kluber will have a higher K/9, lower FIP, lower FIP-, more Wins.
