Thats interesting that you think that Greinke deserves the award and that you were joking about Verlander. It pretty much seems like the same situation in the NL - but here you change your tune completely. Please compare the 2 situations between Zack/Verlander and Timmy/Wainwright.

NL AL
Wins Wainwright Verlander
ERA Lincecum Greinke
WHIP Lincecum Greinke
Quality St Lincecum Greinke
Shutouts Lincecum Greinke
K's Lincecum Verlander

Verlander helped his team to a 1 game playoff and Wainwright helped his team to a 3 game playoff. Greinke and Timmy pitched for teams that didnt do much although the Giants contended.

SO........ given all this I ask again. Why is Verlander a joke but Wainwright is deserving??????? I cant wait for the logic on this other than.... just wait Wainwright will win it.

Holy s**t

Ninerjohn is really good at baseball arguments.

Carpenter is more deserving than Wainwright

Thanks and I agree that Carpenter is more deserving. Does anyone with any baseball sense actually think that LaRussa would pitch Wainwright ahead of Carpenter in a series. Oh wait.. he didnt. That isnt a knock on Wainwright. It just says the obvious.. that even his own manager doesnt think he is the best on his OWN team.

LOL He wasnt even the best pitcher on his team. I wont be shocked if he wins the award but he should finish 3rd based on the year he had.

Lincecum beat Wainwright on every category that he could control:
ERA
WHIP
K's
Shutouts
Quality Starts

Wainwright beat him in 1 area - wins. Jeez.. you think having Pujols and Holiday on the Giants might have resulted in Timmy winning 20??????

Giants fans are here

I inferred it from this^^^

-9fA
LOL I guess James didnt have a response to my question. I'm sure he will be on later gloating if/when Wainwright wins the award though.

By the way, I have no problem with Carpenter winning the award. He is a true ace and did lead the league in ERA and whip. He is equally deserving with Lincecum.

Cal the Ironman's younger bro... I had a baseball card of Billy's... it was an Upperdeck Error Card... he was holding a bat with two hands with it resting on his right shoulder... and clear as day on the bottom of the bat... right side up... it read... "F*CK FACE" lmao!...
