NL Cy Young?

Let’s take a look at the 2013 NL Cy Young candidates 

Adam Wainwright 15-7  2.58 ERA   1.03 WHIP   182 SO

Adam has bounced back from his 2012 season when he had an ERA of almost 4.00. This year he has made his mark as one of the most dominant pitchers in all of baseball. With a sub-3 ERA and 15 wins with over a month left to go, it looks like Wainwright could be in position to have his best season ever.

Matt Harvey 9-5  2.27 ERA  0.93 WHIP  191 SO

Matt Harvey is the Met’s ace they’ve been looking for. Harvey is the best starting pitcher under 25 in all of baseball. He was the starter of the All Star Game. Unfortunately for Mets fans, Harvey will be shut down as he has a partial tear in his elbow and could be looking at surgery.

Clayton Kershaw 13-7  1.72 ERA   0.86 WHIP   188 SO

Clayton-Kershaw

What can I say? Clayton Kershaw has proven to be the most dominant pitcher of the past 3 years. He won the award 2 years ago, should’ve won it last year, and looks like he’ll be taking it home this year, as well.
