    Bad voting, name them

    John Fay of Cincinnati
    NL Cy Young
    1. Johnny Cueto
    2. R.A. Dickey
    3. Clayton Kershaw

    John Erardi of Cincinnati
    NL ROY
    1. Todd Frazier
    2. Bryce Harper
    3. Wade Miley


    What is the point in letting them vote if they are just going to vote for their guys?


    I am happy that Tom Hardicourt and George King have had their privileges taken away at this point, but what is the point in letting guys that do this continue to vote?

    The only first place vote for a guy is from that guys home city? It's clearly a homer vote when that happens.

    Unless thye pick out a select few of sports analysts and nuetral voters, it will always be like this. Whether it's sports reporters in a city, a teammate, or a coach, some people will always vote for their guy and not who deserves it.

    and I meant to say George King in my initial post, who left Pedro off a ballot one year 'because pitchers don't deserve the award' and then voted for David Wells the next year

    I'll never forget that. He was a Yankee beat reporter for the NY Post.

    Just a pathetic homer who I hope isn't even a journalist anymore.

    The voting system is severally flawed, obviously.

    Verlander should have won in the AL

    Kershaw should have won in the NL

    dickey had a great year but you can't count the W-L column to determine how great a pitcher is.

    Neither were snubbed, this was a close call between both first and second place winners in both.

    The winners are not the issue.
