Half-year Cy Young: Tim Lincecum

Jayson Stark says on ESPN.com that in a league (the National League) full of Cy Young quality pitchers, “no one is having a more special year than Tim Lincecum.”

    I just read the article before clicking over to your blog. The only thing about Stark’s first half stuff is that the first half picks are never the full season picks (at least more often than not). I think Tim will win the Cy Young… but why did Stark have to jinx him?

    I would have to agree being a Padre fan (rough year) I have been watching him pitch this year and wow!

    No mention of the first half N.L. MVP? C’mon! Pujols is the man! LOL. I do think that Lohse, though he does not have the numbers, could give Lincecum a run in the Cy Young race if the Cardinals make the playoffs after being written off by everyone outside the city of St. Louis.

  4. Tato says:

    Wow… really? Lincecum’s main competition will be Volquez and Webb… Volquez because of his lower ERA and high K total, Webb because he will end the season with more wins. Voters usually don’t take playoffs into account for Cy Young – that is more of an MVP issue.

    Yeah, I hate to think that being picked by Stark is a jinx, but it probably is.

    As far as the Cards and Pujols — it’s less painful than being a Giants fan these days.

  6. Tato says:

    the Giants aren’t all that painful compared to what everyone thought they would be doing. There are some bright spots – like Lewis and Bowker, in addition to Lincecum.
