Kershaw for me as well, with a close second to Price.

I'd like the two Strasburg voters to explain why they chose him.

If I'm only basing my decision on performance thus far this season, I'm taking Harvey.

I'd go probably something like...
1. Justin Verlander
2. Clayton Kershaw
3. Felix Hernandez
4. Cliff Lee
then there's a lot of room for interpretation...prefer older guys with results last few years (Sabathia), or younger guys (Price, Hamels, Greinke, etc.)

Can I vote twice? Kershaw vs Verlander is too close to call.

This without a doubt comes down to 3 pitchers and any other choices are wrong.

Verlander
Kershaw
The King

All the other arent durable enough or dont pitch anywhere near the innings these three do.

You cant go wrong with any of them but id go Kershaw, Verlander, Felix.

If your asking off of what 4-5 starts this year well then this thread is pointless, some of those others might end up in the convo after another year or 2 but as of right now its no contest to me who the best are.

And after looking at home/away split stats. I would probally change my order to Kershaw, Felix, Verlander. Verlander is clearly helped hte most by his home park over the past 3 years.

This. Just because Harvey and Darvish are off to good starts doesn't make them the best in the game. Kershaw or Verlander /thread.
