Those who ignore history are bound to repeat Kernan.
Sabathia won his major-league-high 15th game. That is what aces do, and this is why Sabathia has the edge over all other AL starters this year, including the incredible Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander.
You can point to Verlander’s statistical advantages over Sabathia, and the Angels’ Jered Weaver is rolling, but give CC the edge. If Verlander or Weaver outduels CC the last nine weeks, give ‘em the Cy Young, but right now it is Sabathia.
...Sabathia was 21-7 last season and finished third in Cy Young voting behind winner Felix Hernandez, who starts today for the Mariners, and the Rays’ David Price.
Getting beat by King Felix can happen, but Hernandez had 13 wins last year and over the last two seasons is 21-21 with the struggling Mariners.
Wins are important. At Cooperstown this past weekend, inductee Pat Gillick said: “Wins matter. Forget about quality starts and forget about all that other stuff.”
Wins matter. No matter what, this will be a great Cy Young race.
