Congrats to CC, the writers made the the right call. 40 more IP and the 4 complete games on top of 19 wins. Of course I have the love for Josh Beckett, and he was spectacular this year, just not as the best regular season pitcher.

Postseason, that's another story.

Beckett was 2nd, followed by Lackey, Carmona, Bedard, Halladay, Santana and Verlander.

Im glad the post season didn't get in the way of this call. It is nice to see all of the voters do not have blinders on.

They vote before the postseason.

The writers made the right choice here on the basis of the extra 40 IP Sabathia had over Beckett. Ironically, that's probably why Sabathia stunk in the postseason.

Sox fans on another board saying Sabathia "indicted for fraud". Psh. CC had the slightly better season. Plus their guys already won a world series, they need to give it a rest.

Ugh, it's crap like this I hate. Sabathia's season was slightly better. Beckett did miss a couple starts in May with the evulsion (sp?) or whatever that was on the finger. I thought it was fairly even all season with the two of them. One thing to look at is their final starts; Beckett had a rough outing against the Twins (5 ER in 6 IP) while CC went 7 and gave up 3 runs.

Beckett won ALCS MVP and his 2nd ring. I'm sure losing out on the Cy stinks for him as it'd be icing on the cake, but he still took home some hardware.

That's what I think too. I feel bad for not even looking/comparing beforehand, I assumed Beckett would get it. But CC's stats are a little better; the 4 CG, one a shutout, stands out more. And pitching about 40 innings more with an ERA slightly less than Beckett's (even though he missed some starts).

    • Distinctly remember having a debate with @DrungoHazewoodseveral years ago about McGriff’s candidacy. I wonder if he’s changed his tune. 
    • It's only 2 pages if you take out duplicate posts and unrelated to Gibson posts. It is decibel going to be a long offseason.  Haha
    • He's currently #12. If he collects the entire contract, he will be in the top 2-3. Verlander likely still beats him with this next contract, but I agree it's still close. My point is that ToR starters are wickedly expensive and if Grayson becomes one, as many have postulated he might, having him early in his career when he is cost contained and thoughtfully dispositioning him when he becomes expensive will have an enormous impact on the finances of the ball club. I think mores than Adley and Gunnar but I could be very wrong. 
    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
    • I believe Elias has more money to play with as the 30 million Bam money comes into play.   I look for a signing of Tailon, Bell, and back up catcher by Christmas. Mullins CF Rutschman  C Henderson 3B  Bell DH Santander RF Mountcastle 1B Hays/Stowers LF Westburg 2B Mateo SS
