    Is anyone pissed about Kershaw being 2nd in CY Young

    He missed a few starts because of his hip or he would of had the most K's in the league. Not to mention that he had the lowest era in both leagues.

    Obviously wanted him to win, but it's not the most ridiculous decision ever, Dickey was deserving as well, Kershaw will win another before his career ends

    I can say with confidence that the voters unfortunately put a lot of stock into Dickey's story and 20 wins.

    Kershaw:
    ERA- 2.53
    FIP- 2.89
    xFIP- 3.25

    WAR- 5.5
    IP- 227.2
    K- 229
    K/9- 9.05
    BB- 63
    BB/9- 2.49
    WHIP- 1.02

    Dickey:
    ERA- 2.73
    FIP- 3.27
    xFIP- 3.27
    WAR- 4.6
    IP- 233.2
    K- 230
    K/9- 8.86
    BB- 54
    BB/9- 2.08
    WHIP- 1.05

    And they both started the same amount of games- 33.

    I looked further and I found that Kershaw pitched nine games where went 7IP or further and gave up 3 runs or less and either got the L or ND. Dickey had only four games like that. Kershaw was the victim of low run support and voters unfortunately failed to realize that.

    Kershaw should've won.

    Dickey was deserving and was probably the hot pick. But kershaw was equally deserving and I feel for him. Get him healthy and win it next year! Excellent post SFrush90. You sure you wouldn'trather be a dodger fan. Lol

    Guess I can't argue that. Maybe that will change, if not we will of wasted a hell of a lot of money. But it is better than it has been for a long while

    Obviously I am not a giants fan, but any fan of baseball has to appreciate what the giants did. Must admit I liked seeing Timmy come out of the pen. Great coaching decision

    Even though I hate the dodgers its an easy call to say Kershaw is the best pitcher in the national league. He is a stud and of course the dodgers will find a way to pitch him in every series against the giants...
