Oswalt got robbed! Okay, Okay, he didn't get robbed. Webb rightfully deserved to win the Cy Young this year, but if you wanted to, you could make a case that Roy deserved the Cy Young as well(along with Carpenter and Hoffman). I don't have a problem with Roy not winning. I wanted him to win and I don't think anyone could say that if he did win, that any other pitcher got robbed. Just thinking about it, I am really surprised that Roy ended up 4th in the balloting, especially with as few votes as he got.
Here's the votes
|Trevor Hoffman||San Diego||12||3||8||77|
|Chris Carpenter||St. Louis||2||16||5||63|
Here's the stats for Webb, Carpenter and Oswalt.(I didn't include Hoffman because he's a closer and IMO, you can't compare stats for a closer to a starter. I also think they should have a separate award for closers).
As you can see, the stats are all very, very close between the three.
