The NL Cy Young award, like the AL award, is a two horse race. Kershaw. Harvey. Kershaw. Harvey. It's interesting that the award has come down to these two pitchers, despite neither of them leading the National League in fWAR. But Kershaw leads baseball in ERA, and Harvey is fourth in the majors while leading the National League in strikeout rate, so it at least makes sense that these two are prominently involved.

Despite his strikeout r...

The always enjoyable to read Ted Berg, now with USA Today, sets us straight on how fans view their top prospects and writes:
Great players in the minors almost always graduate to the next level, but great players in the Majors have no place else to go. On the rare occasion a minor leaguer is in fact good enough to dominate in the bigs, he doesnâ€™t hang around on the farm for long...
