The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) will announce their Cy Young awards tonight. In an effort to capitalize on their announcement SB Nation is making its own announcement for our own slightly less prestigious award.
Needless to say we SB Nation writers are a smug bunch. We think you should completely disregard the real Cy Young awards in favor of ours or at very least confuse the two. Why? Well we loooove sabermetrics and we've seen the director's cut of Moneyball and anyone who hasn't seen said movie is an idiot. Sorry but that's just the way we feel.
As smart as we are, Dex and I voted simply by fWAR so that a player's value couldn't possibly be tarnished by our own opinions. No one would dare question fWAR. Unless of course they favor bWAR. With our new method of voting we'll be able to avoid last year's cyber bullying by other blogs in our network.
Now it's impossible for anyone to accuse us of being idiots, we've got fWAR in our corner.
F_ck. We just can't win.
We both voted for:
- Clayton Kershaw
- Gio Gonzalez
- Cliff Lee
- Wade Miley
- Johnny Cueto
