Kershaw a Cy Young finalist 


They are doing things a little differently this year with the BBWAA awards.  Kershaw was named one of three finalists for the NL Cy Young award to be awarded live on MLB network next week.   He is joined by RA Dickey (who I think will win it), and Gio Gonzalez.

Just the facts.

Impressive that Kershaw put up those numbers this year while dealing with achilles issues and hip issues.

King Felix got cy young with fewer wins..hoping they look at dominance factor and fact that Kershaw missed at least one start that cost him K  race..

IF Clayton does not win it in 2012...he will be a favorite along in 2013.
in 2013 we will win many more games than we did in 2012..
kershaw might have 20 win season..in 2013.

I'm sure most know Dickey won the Cy Young, but interested in hearing you thoughts on the selection.

I have no issue with it. Makes for a great story.

The fact that Kershaw got this far despite dealing with injury issues speaks volumes of how great of a pitcher Kershaw is. Scary enough, he's off to a better start than Koufax and Drysdale did. And even more odd enough, with his injury-plagued season, I felt like he could be 50% better than he was.

I am surprised that 2-3 writers didn't include him on their ballot.
