I would've given it to Dickey, but wouldn't have had a problem with Kershaw. I thought Verlander deserved it in the AL, but don't have THAT big of a problem with Price.
Did Dickey throw a no-hitter every start? Then terrible logic. If he did, then of course he would deserve the Cy Young. But he didn't, so what does it matter?
I knew that post would draw your ire as we've already discussed this, but I'm just not buying it, man. I think pitchers who have great command of several pitches, know how to approach different hitters, and work counts are much more deserving of the CYA than eephus junkers.
