And here we go

Hey guys,

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

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:

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…

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!
