And here we go


#1

Hey guys,

April is done and what a month…
A no-hitter and lots of more nice things!

Now…
Let’s consider your three Cy-Young award nominees in the AL en NL.
Of course nothing’s for sure now but we can still make a guess who will make it till the end of the year and maybe get a Cy-Young award.

Let’s just make a top 3 in both leagues in the month April (and the following months) and one with the nominees you think will go Cy-Young at the end of the year

My guess:

[size=18]April[/size]
American League

  1. Fransisco Liriano
  2. Phil Hughes
  3. Matt Garza

National League

  1. Ubaldo Jimenez (without a doubt)
  2. Tim Lincecum *
  3. Roy Halladay *
  • close finish, couldn’t decide wich one would go second and third…

Overall[/size]
American League

  1. Fransisco Liriano
  2. CC Sabathia
  3. Phil Hughes

National League (hard one!)

  1. Roy Halladay
  2. Tim Lincecum
  3. Ubaldo Jimenez
  • very hard one because all three are having a killer start of the season.
    My choice goes to Halladay because he’s the NL-“rookie” this year and already put up some great numbers. With a great line-up behind him he might even get that first no-hitter (or perfect game but let we just stay realistic) since that nasty ALMOST no-hitter in his second carreer start.
    Tim lincecum just continues to be dominant and do his work. The reason I rank him above Jimenez is because I think Lincecum will keep this level up during the entire season while Jimenez will lose a bit of his dominance.
    But hey, those are just predictions right?

Now post your top 3!
