  1. 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...

  2. Should Phillies be worried about Halladay?

    Rob Neyer

    When you're Roy Halladay and you've gone 77-37 with a 2.59 ERA over the past four seasons, including one Cy Young Award and two second-place finishes, even a small blip in dominance sends sweat dripping down the foreheads of Phillies fans. Hallada...

  3. Feller got through war, then got hurt

    Rob Neyer

    At the conclusion of the 1941 season, Bob Feller was 22 years old and he'd won 107 games in the major leagues. At that pace ... well, if Feller had continued pitching that well until he was 42, he would have challenged Cy Young's more impressive reco...

  4. 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...

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

    Rob Neyer

    Does Felix Hernandez's Cy Young Award (Craig Calcaterra asks) signal that Hall of Fame voters will worry less about wins and more about the things a pitcher can control? I'm not hopeful. Partially because there is so much more of a time investment ...

  6. Can a losing pitcher win the Cy Young?

    Rob Neyer

    OK, so we have our first Cy Young winner with a 13-12 record. That's some sort of progress, I suppose. How far can we take this thing, though? Would King Felix have won if he'd gone 12-13, instead? Or 9-16? I wasn't able to conduct an exhaustive s...

  7. A.L. C.Y. pits Wins against ERA

    Rob Neyer

    If Felix Hernandez wins the Cy Young Award today, those howls you'll hear from our nation's leafy suburbs will be coming mostly from a certain generation of baseball writers, many of whom fought like blazes to keep on-base percentage from entering th...

  8. Is Dejan Kovacevic the new Keith Law?

    Rob Neyer

    Hey, a question just occurred to me ... Where is the outrage? Almost exactly one year ago, National League Cy Young Award voters Will Carroll and Keith Law were roundly excoriated -- in print, on television, the InterWeb -- because they left Chris...

  9. Wednesday Wangdoodles

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links can't be held responsible for what they might do later this morning, if more than one crazy voter or two leave Felix Hernandez off their Cy Young ballots completely ... The Platoon Advantage's Bill offers a gentle corrective to the ...

  10. Johnson almost lost in Cy Young shuffle

    Rob Neyer

    The National League Cy Young balloting has seemed like a foregone conclusion for some time. Which, in the event, it was. In the SweetSpot Network balloting, Roy Halladay was the unanimous choice: 19 ballots, 19 first-place votes for Halladay. More...

  11. The King of the American League

    Rob Neyer

    Jason Rosenberg on the Cy Young race that's probably already been won: And then there's the case of King Felix. He is, quite simply, the best pitcher in the AL, if not all of MLB right now. Except he's lacking one thing: wins. It's entirely possible...

  12. Cahill, BABiP, Cy Young, and the A's

    Rob Neyer

    As Dave Cameron wrote last night, "The Trevor Cahill for Cy Young bandwagon lasted four days." After beating the Indians last week, Cahill's record was 14-5 and Cahill's ERA was 2.43, which did lead to some talk about Cahill's Cy Young worthiness....

  13. The meaning of Trevor Cahill

    Rob Neyer

    Preparatory to a larger (and future) discussion about how we should talk about Cy Young candidates, Dave Cameron introduces a highly relevant subject: One comment that keeps arising, however, is about the correlation between Trevor Cahill's BABIP a...

  14. Steady Cuellar a master of the screwball

    Rob Neyer

    Every time something like this happens, a little piece of me dies, too... Mike Cuellar, a crafty left-hander from Cuba whose darting screwball made him a World Series champion and Cy Young winner with the Baltimore Orioles, died Friday. He was 72....

  15. Mariners pulling off a heist

    Rob Neyer

    Dave Cameron really, really, really likes what the Mariners seem to be doing. The big finish: This is, quite frankly, a heist. The Mariners are getting a Cy Young caliber pitcher for some decent-but-not-great prospects. They aren't giving up Morrow...

  16. Digging into Cy balloting

    Rob Neyer

    Let's dig into the Cy Young balloting, shall we? Two voters, Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus and Keith Law of, did not include Chris Carpenter on their ballots. Carroll had Wainwright in the top spot, Tim Lincecum second and Arizona...
