    I'm sure you didn't include Wang because you want to piss off Yankee fans.

    An ways.......


    Josh Beckett wins Cy Young.

    Sabathia is the guy that should win it. But sportswriters are stupid and think the win totals mean a lot when they really mean next to nothing, so Beckett will win it.

    Verlander and Lackey are guys that are way up there in my mind by the way - not just entering the conversation. Had Bedard not gotten hurt, he should have won.

    And the reason I vote Sabathia over Beckett or any of the other guys is he's thrown 30 more innings than Beckett has and has a better ERA. WHIP, K/IP, and BB/IP.

    Actually I just forgot him...plus it's not like I'd have him in the top 5 anyway.

    Sabathia, Santana, Bedard, Beckett, and Carmona have all been better.

    Well, all of the guys he listed are ahead of Wang this year, easily.

    Anyway, Beckett will win it, Cy Young voters love those wins.

    I vote for Carmona. I think he has the stuff to get his ERA under 3 with his schedule. And will probably end with 19 wins.

    I vote Sabbathia...I respect starters that throw a lot of innings. Some guys used to throw 300, and i don't mean guys from 1910 or something...how many on this list have thrown 200 yet?

    Actually the reason I started this thread was because someone in the Star Ledger listed Sabathia as his front runner. I went and checked it out and I was like...I agree.

    The rest of his list was disturbing.

    If Bedard was healthy ...that dude is sick.

    This conversation begins and ends with Kyle Farnsworth.

    Ok in all seriousness, either Indian will do, but I give the lead to Sabathia
