Default Lincecum Wins Cy Young

Lincecum is the winner of the Cy Young !!! Just image what he would be like on a better team. I just hope the Giants build fast so he will stay out west.

Imagine if he was signed by the Cleveland Indians or the Chicago Cubs who were the first teams to draft him...

Imagine a guy who has a PERFECT SEASON finishing 4th in the voting ? I could see if relievers never won the CY in the past but come on, 4th ?

Bottom line is the person who won deserved to win, which is nice to see for a change.

I'm a huge Philly fan and will be the first to say that the World Series Championship would not have been possible without Lidge.....

But Lincecum deserved the Cy Young. I didn't think it would be right for CC to win it, even though he did dominate in the NL half of his season he only pitched for half the season in the NL and we can't predict what would have happened had NL hitters had more of an opportunity to see him and "figure him out". And I'm very happy that Webb did not get it proving that it's not just about racking up wins. Lincecum was the most dominant pitcher outright, which is what the Cy Young should be about. It's about individual pitching performance which is measured in ERA, WHIP, Ks, BAA, etc. and not necessarily the Wins column. Also take the fact that Webb and Lincecum pitch in the same division facing the same batters most of the time - thus making it much easier to compare their numbers directly and prove once again that Lincecum was just purely dominant.

Congrats to Lincy and to Lincy collectors!

If you want to talk about a dominating second half you have to mention Santana. I believe he was 8-0 in the 2nd half with an ERA under 2 and he was pitching on a bad knee.

Wish I would have hung onto a couple of the 10 or so autos we pulled from Prospects Plus.

Good on TL... knew this guy would win something in short time. He's pretty good, wouldn't mind if we picked this guy up at all-though highly unlikely.

He was my prediction on that NL CY Young prediction thread long ago...woo hoo good for me, I guess I deserve a gold star.

Yeah, I know, who cares about my prediction but this proves wrong to those who said he wouldn't win because "its only his second season...maybe a couple more years and he'll win"

I have a question: Has any other national league pitcher won the CY Young in only their second season? I'm curious

Dr. K, Dwight Gooden, baby... won the Cy Young in 1985 at age 20 (and got every first place vote). He also finished 2nd in 1984, the year he won the NL ROY.

Can you imagine if a pitcher did that today? A high-schooler from the '06 draft class goes 17-9 in '07 and wins the '08 Cy Young... just unreal. We marvel at the Jobas and Lincecums of the sport, who are few and far between, but also 3-4 years older than Gooden in his prime.
