CHICAGO, IL – OCTOBER 09: Max Scherzer /

NL Cy Young

Clayton Kershaw – While injuries cut his season short, Scherzer also dealt with injuries.  Besides strikeouts, Kershaw was better than Scherzer, and whenever he was on the mound, it seemed like an automatic W for the Dodgers. @wittman7

Max Scherzer – It pains me not to give this award to Kershaw, but I believe that Scherzer had a better year. Scherzer pitched 25 more innings than Kershaw but gave up ten fewer hits. Also, his WHIP was better, gave up less HR than Kershaw, and had a higher strikeout per 9. @rvargas0

Max Scherzer – Led National league in ERA and strikeouts. Also had the best WHIP by far, and pitched in four more games than Kershaw, throwing 25 more innings. I’d love Kershaw to win, but it will ultimately be Scherzer.   @bsmithme3

Max Scherzer – Kershaw’s injury gave Mad Max enough time to pad his lead in the Cy Young race. The leader in WHIP, Strikeouts, and BAA. Second in ERA. @_hponce

Max Scherzer – Whether Kershaw’s injury truly affects the final vote or not, Scherzer has earned his place statistically and has still led Washington to another NL East division crown. @DGabruch

Clayton Kershaw – Still the best SP of this generation. Most Wins and best ERA in NL despite missing time again with back issues. @ACGonzo7

Clayton Kershaw – Kershaw’s injury is really the only reason why this is up for debate. Up until his injury, he was leading the NL in every statistical category and was on his way to a spectacular season. The only stat that would leave me hesitant on Kershaw is the number of home runs allowed. Even with the most home runs in his career and four less starts, he still led the MLB in ERA and Wins. @cbece013

CLEVELAND, OH – OCTOBER 11: Corey Kluber /

AL Cy Young

Corey Kluber – While Sale came out hot from the start, Kluber just got better as the season went along.  He was the best pitcher in the AL. @wittman7

Corey Kluber – Best pitcher in the AL when you look at the total body of work. Team success also plays a factor. @rvargas0

Corey Kluber – Ridiculous ERA, tied for the league lead in wins, second in strikeouts to Sale. Easily the Cy Young winner @bsmithme3

Corey Kluber – Finished strong and led in virtually every major statistical category except for strikeouts. @_hponce

Corey Kluber – Hands down had one of the best seasons in history. Not to mention that he was apart of the amazing winning streak. Also maintained his consistency even after battling short-term injuries. @DGabruch

Corey Kluber – Was ridiculously stellar down the stretch. Most Wins, best ERA, and WHIP. Yes, Sale has him on the Ks by a lot, but Kluber is also the ace for AL’s best team. @ACGonzo7

Corey Kluber – Kluber was a vital part of the Indians 50 game stretch where they challenged the Dodgers for the best record in the league. Sale faltered, and Kluber was in a class of his own once he returned from injury. @cbece013
