That should get it. In addition, he is #1 in innings. With one more good start and a little luck, he could lead the NL in all 4 important categories, ERA, Wins, K's and innings. That has to win a Cy Young.
That is probably the only way he wins the Cy Young. Gio will probably still win it though. Most wins for the best team in the league. No matter what Tucker thinks the Cy Young should be (i.e. cy young is not MVP), voters have shown over and over that players on winning teams have a very big advantage. Unless you blow away =the winning team's players, you just won't win it. It's as simple as that.
