Got a hunch Halladay and Lee(6 SHO)could be 1-2,since Phillies r always division leaders.
Just seen Kennedy's,Kershaw's and Kimbrel's stats. Someone will be disappointed.

Kershaw...how are you going to vote against him?? other than kemp he's the most consistant player on the dodgers staff.

The total choices were supposed to mimic the BBWAA's balloting system. However, I didn't realize last year they changed the Cy Young from 3 choices to 5. Oops.

At the top, while I don't care about the wins component of the pitchers Triple Crown, the rest of Kershaw's numbers are enough to put him ahead of Halladay and Lee, who are basically a top up among themselves for 2nd and 3rd. If I had done it right and there were 5 slots, #4 and #5 would've gone to Kennedy and Hamels.

 Arizona would not be in the post-season if not for the pitching of Ian Kennedy.  He stopped losing skids several times during the season as well.  Kershaw has put up numbers worthy of Cy Young consideration, and I believe that Halladay and Lee may dilute each others 1st place votes.  In the end, Kennedy's contribution to the D-Backs playoff year outweighs the efforts of the other front runners.

Kershaw is a lock, he is number one in inning pitch strike out in wins.

This is so very obvious.  Kershaw should be unanimous.  To select anyone else would only be favoring "your" guy.  And this is from a Giants fan!
