Cy Young Contenders-1st Month
Posted on: May 2, 2010 12:53 am
There was many surprises around the MLB after April. Pitchers came up in the clutch to lead their team to victory. I know it is early, but here are some pitchers to watch out for. This is NOT if the season ended today--it is who I think is on track to win it. <br />National League<br />1. Tim Lincecum<br /><span> </span>Lincecum continues to impress game after game with his amazing stuff. He will be a great pitcher for many years to come. Lincecum and Sandoval might be the only reason the Giants might have any chance at the playoffs. I believe if Lincecum can guide the Giants to the playoffs, the award will be his yet again.<br />2. Roy Halladay<br /><span> </span>Roy took no time adjusting to the National League as hes off to a great start with the Phillies. Roy has proved he can last a solid nine innings when he's on. Roy has a dazzling 1.47 ERA so far, and with the Phillies power packed offense, he shouldn't lose many more games. <br />3. Adam Wainwright<br /><span> </span>Wainwright is one of the many reasons his Cards will be the best in the National League. The Cardinals feature a deadly rotation, anchored by Wainwright. As he showed last year. Wainwright has the ability to last long, fool batters with his off-speed and overpower them with his fastball. This is a guy you can always count on.<br />4. Barry Zito<br /><span> </span>Yes, im putting him this high up. Zito received that contract he wanted long ago, and he's finally realizes he has to do something. After sub-par seasons with the Giants, Zito has brought much more intensity this year. His stuff his still excellent and there's no reason why he shouldn't continue his success after the confidence he has built for himself. We all know this guy has Cy Young potential.<br />5. Chris Carpenter<br /><span> </span>This veteran has never failed to impress. Since he has been with the Cardinals hes been nothing but succesful, bouncing back from injuries and winning games. While he might not have as good of a year as last years campaign, he sure will bring a lot to the table for this years club. Carp is another guy that gives his team a chance every time.<br />Honorable Mention: Ubaldo Jimenez, COL; Barry Zito, SF; Brad Penny, STL; Dan Haren, ARI; Yovani Gallardo, MIL; Josh Johnson, FLA.<br />American League<br />hernandezweavergarzariverapricem att garzasabathialirianoburnettpettitec armona<br /><br /><br />
