    what the hell! how could it be that lopsided! According to the stats Kershaw was the best pitcher in the league, i get why some people voted for him, but this should have been a lot closer, jeeze had clayton not missed 1 start he would have finished with more K's and innings pitched.

    So you are saying that RA was more durable.
    RA had more QS 27 at 82% than Kershaw 25 at 76%, threw less walks in spite being a knuckleball pitcher and logged more innings pitched. He also had more complete games, shut outs and his K/BB ratio was 4.26 to 3.63.

    Then if you throw in that Kershaw's home/away splits were pretty lopsided you can see why the votes went the way it did.

    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    But he did miss a start so that theory doesn't fly. Dickey pitched the entire season with a torn oblique and did what he did. And you can't predict out that he would have had a good start if he pitched one more game. He could have gotten rocked it happens. The facts are that Dickey made each and every one of his starts, had six more IP, one more K, three more CG, one more SHO, the WHIP's were almost identical (1.02 for Kershaw & 1.05 for Dickey) but at the end of the day Dickey didn't win 20 games for a great team or even for a team hovering around .500, he pitched for one of the worst teams in the NL which had poor defense, no bullpen whatsoever and couldn't hit worth a lick with RISP. The fact that he won 20 was the deciding factor because the Dodgers were a way better team than the Mets and he was still able to accomplish that feat. Don't get me wrong I like Kershaw and I know for a fact he will win multiple Cy Youngs but this was Dickey's year and you can't take away from his accomplishments.

    Um, awards are about what you DID, not about what you MIGHT have done. Myself, hey, I coulda been a contender.
