Next up in our awards discussion, the AL Cy Young. The candidates: Zack Greinke, Felix Hernandez, C.C. Sabathia, Roy Halladay, Edwin Jackson, and Justin Verlander. Jon Lester could enter the mix with a huge September. Mariano Rivera is another name to consider, if you like closers for this award. Here's the question: can you make a legitimate argument for anyone other than Greinke, without bringing up win totals?
The last few AL Cy Young winners: Cliff Lee, Sabathia, Johan Santana, and Bartolo Colon.
