Okay, I have nothing better do this baseball season that hold out for remote chance that Felix’s consistency is rewarded, Here is a side-by-side comparison with whom I see being the front runners in the AL.
As much of a challenge it is for me, I have to take a step back from these stats. Felix is better than both of these pitchers in every category besides wins. Will that be enough assuming he finished just as strong? If the Mariners win the rest of his starts there will be no doubt he deserves it. I would like to see the Cy Young winner with at least 12 to 14 wins, so the stat does matter to some degree, however should not have the most “weight” tied to it.
As the season draws to a close I will continue to follow this race.
