  2. Bill James on King Felix's time

    Rob Neyer

    It's subscriber-only and I don't even know if I'm supposed to do this, but Bill James runs through the math, finds that CC Sabathia was probably closer to Felix Hernandez than maybe you thought, but does wind up with the same answer as the Cy Young v...

  3. Do Cy Young results signal Hall of Fame shift?

    Rob Neyer

  8. Looking for another miracle

    Rob Neyer

    Eric Seidman on the hunt for this year's miracle: Cliff Lee had, by all accounts, a fantastic 2008 season en route to a Cy Young Award. What made his performance more remarkable was how he seemingly came out of nowhere, a back end of the rotatio...

  14. Clearing the bases: Lincecum's struggles

    Rob Neyer

    First base: Lincecum loses again. Jayson Stark gave his first-half Cy Yuck award to Tim Lincecum and deservedly so: After getting knocked out in the fourth inning on Sunday, the two-time Cy Young winner finished the first half at 3-10 with a 6.42 ERA...

  15. Do both Cy Youngs signal shift?

    Rob Neyer

    It's just one year. I'm not quite ready to declare that the paradigm has shifted. As I wrote a few months ago, Bill James' method to predict Cy Young Awards has always worked quite well, even in recent seasons. The only caveat is that the Predicto...

    Rob Neyer
