What are the chances that JJ wins the Cy Young? Im not getting too hopeful, especially after tonights loss but hes definitely in contention. He leads all of Baseball with a 1.72 ERA, he has 10 wins and 3 losses but hes still has maybe 13-15 starts left. He has 141 K´s (I looked on mlb.com Idk if it included tonite, if it doesnt its 146) putting him right there in the top three NL pitchers in Strikeouts. If Johnson can keep his ERA around/under 2.00 and win 10 of this starts left, stay with the SO pace, then we have a real contender for the Cy Young.
I know Ubaldo and Wainwright are probably front-runners right now, especially with all the hype Ubaldo created, but Johnson has a good chance. It doesnt help either that we are considered a ¨small-market¨ team and we get overlooked sometimes (I still remember D-Train in ´05).
What do you guys think?
