Voters also love big stats and milestones Tim's Ks will likely be the reason he'll win. I understand Ws play a major roll, but when was the last time we've seen a pitcher this good on a team this bad?

Exactly the garbage start Timmy did not need. A lot of voters probably tuned in to get a late look at at him. Hope it doesn't leave a lasting impression.

I can't think of a worst start this season. He was extremely erratic the short time he was out there. To top it off he fell out of the NL ERA lead. :evil:

Still got 9 K's and broke the SF single season record. =D>

K's are just a supplement, his era will be the reason he wins...at this point its official...webb wont win, he'll gather a good chunk of votes but i doubt there will be enough dumb voters to land him the award...it's tims, unless he blows up today...and then it might go to santana

kinda sad that santana came out of nowhere and slipped into era lead at the very end

but its ok...the cy young is tim's for the taking with a good finale today

Congrats!!! :D =D>

Good to see Timmy get the recognition from his peers. Hopefully the Cy Young voters feel the same.

kinda makes me think he won't get it now. i've seen players win the player of the year award and they don't win MVP. It's like a consolation prize for not winning the big one before the big awards come out.

jeez way to jinx it rob.

no but in all honesty, Tim Beasticolm deserves the CY hands down. Most quality starts by far, most K's, he was the Best pitcher. His peers were most feared to hit him (in essence, what this reward stands for)

Anyway, Cy or not, this honor is great too

ESPN Is already questioning whether or not the writers got it wrong.

Yeah PTI with Wilbon and Rielly (not to be confused with Riali) both disagreed with the writers. But that's their arrogance. One doesn't follow much baseball, while the other one has a huge east coast bias and loves his Cubs. 23 first place votes out of 32 is pretty dominant. second place only had 7. PLUS, the Players voted for Linc too.

Whats there to complain about

They got it right, Timmy earns it. Despite Webb having more wins and Santana with the higher winning percentage during the second half of the season, Timmy earned it. Why? Because he was simply... DOMINANT ALL SEASON LONG.

of all those pitchers... you have to admit... tim lost some games because he had no run support to work with. If the giants more offense i bet you tim would have gotten even more first place votes

Along with the Cy Young award Timmy L. will be the cover boy for the new MLB 2K9 game. He had a fantastic year, the only player I could see an argument for going against him was Lidge. Webb really wasnt that good, when you consider his start....he fizzled out at the end of the year and Santana was great at the end of the year when his team sucked...but Timmy was great all season.
