Every time I think someone has taken control of the race and made it their own... another stud makes themselves heard.
Just yesterday I was all but declaring Adam Wainwright the winner... but today Roy Halladay declared "NOT SO FAST!"
He won his 15th game and threw 8 shutout innings (and walked NOBODY).
He leads the league in strikeouts, innings pitched and complete games. And today's game was a must win to stop the bleeding doozy.
So it could be Halladay... but Jimenez pitches tomorrow, as does Lincecum in a critical inter division game.
We've had tight years for Cy Young voting before, but most of the time it was either because there was NO dominant candidate or it was down to two solid pitchers (like Maddux and Glavine in 1992.)
But this year, between Jimenez, Wainwright, Halladay, Johnson and maybe even Tim Hudson and Lincecum there are more aces than we can measure.
It comes down to the last month and a half.
They have my attention.
