I would be amazed if Harvey beat out Kershaw for the Cy Young. Harvey's been solid, but Kershaw is in a league of his own. With the exception of a lower K/9 and K/BB, Kershaw has better numbers across the board. Most importantly, he pitches deeper into games, has a lower ERA and lower WHIP, all with a tougher schedule than Harvey.

It's like some greater power wants Matt Harvey to win the Cy Young. He finally has a somewhat tough matchup against the Diamondbacks, and then they sit their best bat (goldschmidt). A couple weeks before that, he has another somewhat tough matchup against the Braves, but they sit every decent player in their lineup to keep them fresh for the second game in the doubleheader.

So yeah, Matt Harvey's great and all, but he seems to consistently get these big breaks which I think should be taken into account when he's being considered for the Cy Young

NL Hype Cy Young: Matt Harvey
NL Real Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw

I know Harvey's been amazing, but more Ws, better ERA (by about a half a run) and better WHIP. Only guy under a 2.00 ERA last time i checked.

And Kershaw will end up with an ERA under 2 and a whip under 1 if he keeps it up. The Cy is his to lose right now.

Hey, no hate for Kershaw as I think he's the #1 pitcher in baseball but Waino has been crazy good, the BB count is insane.

If Clayton Kershaw continues this pace and does not win the Cy Young, I will no longer consider that a real award.

Who is saying Davis over Miggy (1st half) LOL??

Miggy has more runs, more RBI, much higher AVG, less Ks, higher OBP, higher OPS.

Davis has 4 more HRs.

Give me a break.

And Harvey has been great but won't win CY. Already talk of limiting innings.

So the #1 pitcher in baseball is not the best pitcher in the NL? Interesting...

Wainwright still has a higher WHIP even with 20 fewer walks. That is how good Kershaw has been. Dude is unhittable.

I meant it as if I could have either one, I'd take Kershaw over Waino, I just think Waino is doing better for now and plays on the better team, which sometimes matters.
