Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw

Or Zack Greinke. I still don’t know.

Kershaw was brilliant for most of the season, and while his numbers seemed bad for the first nine starts he started looking like Kershaw again and ended up striking out 301 batter this season.

Greinke, while less mindblowingly dominant, was the epitome of consistency this year. His ERA was never above 1.95 after any start and allowed zero or one run in 21 of his 32 starts this year. He led baseball in ERA and had the 75th-lowest ERA in baseball history, according to Baseball Reference which goes back to at least 1876.

Cy Young voters have their work cut out for them, because both of these pitchers and Jake Arrieta should be no-brainers for the award, and only one of them can win it. While Greinke was phenomenal this season, Kershaw came into the season as the best pitcher in baseball and somehow became better, so he gets my vote.

Honorable mention- Greinke

Next: Rookie of the Year
