If the season ended right now, would Roy Halladay get your vote for the NL Cy Young award?
If the season ended today, no, I would not vote for Halladay, although it is very close. I would probably put him second behind Josh Johnson, who has had an incredible year. For a while, Ubaldo Jiminez was first or second, but he has really struggled over his past couple of starts, and has fallen to around the 4-5 range.
Johnson may have the better ERA, but there is still enough time for Halladay to gain ground on Johnson for a Cy Young vote. They are both very close in WHIP. Halladay has the most innings, and will likelycontinue to lead the league. Halladay also has the best strikeout/walk ratio in the National League. There’s still a very good chance Halladay could surpass Johnson, at least in my book.
