Cy Young opinions.

I caught a snippet from Sportscenter today and some commenter was discussing the Tim Lincecum NL Cy Young. He was asked if being on the same team hurt Carpenter and Wainwright's chances and his response seemed to be "it doesn't make a difference to me" but he said that some people might have a problem with it. Here's the problem: he said some people may consider it and said "Well it's the argument that Carpenter didn't lead his own team in wins and Wainwright didn't lead his own team in ERA."

I think the argument against someone that they didn't lead their own team in something is dumb but it is amazing that he picked the two common pitcher stats that I care the least about.

The last AL Cy Young award winner not from the Central was Bartolo Colon. God.

World Series Fun

Congrats to the Yanks are in order I suppose.

For fun:
If Matsui had hit like he did in the World Series all year (.615/.643/1.385) he would have hit 105 HR with 280 RBI. He also would not have turned to see the destruction which followed in his wake.
