Note: Peva Pro predictions for 2010 based on relationship of PEVA 2009, 3 Year RAVE Progression, AgeTrack Progression, and other factors.  Peva Pro projections do not take into account injury status.

Cy Young Award Race 2010 - National League

Well, last year, we were one for two, selecting Tim Lincecum in the National League for the one, and Roy Halladay in the American, which was the for two.  No, we didn't see Zach Grienke coming.  Now this year, we're starting to repeat ourselves, well, we're at least starting to pick repeat winners.  But that's how the projections came out and we're thinking that Mr. Lincecum and Mr. Grienke will be back on top of the podium as Cy Young Award winners in 2010.  But there's going to be a lot of movement in the stratosphere, particularly in the National League with lots of newcomers in the mix, and not only transplant Halladay.  There's going to be some hardware given out some year for the group of Jurrjens, Haren, Wainwright, Cain, and Jimenez, and it could start now. 

1. Tim Lincecum, P, SFN - Could it really be three in a row for the San Francico Bay kid who looks a lot more like a snowboarder than a major league hurler.  This wouldn't be too hard to imagine.  But it would be the first time since 2003 when Randy Johnson got his last of four in a row.  One other pitcher accomplished it, too, Greg Maddux from 1992-1996, since the Award began back in 1956.  If Lincecum can get those 18 predicted wins with an ERA of 2.80, he might just become the third.

2.  Dan Haren, P, ARI - I think most people assumed that if an Arizona Diamondback would win another Cy Young Award that it would be a repeat of Brandon Webb in 2006, but ever since Haren came over from the Oakland A's, he's been really good.  Another year like last year and his name will be near the top of the list of Cy Young candidates, even if his team does not contend for a title.

3. Adam Wainwright, P, SLN - Most people think the Cardinals are bound to win a lot of games, and if that's true, it's likely going to be Wainwright and Carpenter that lead the way.  In this era of rare twenty game winners, if Wainwright reaches that plateau, he's going to be hard to beat for the Award.

Best of the Rest - Sleeper.  For some reason we think it's possible that a San Francisco Giant wins the award that it could be Lincecum's teammate Matt Cain.  With an improved offense and a pitcher's park, he'll likely put up good numbers.  It's the competition for votes with his teammate that might be the hardest thing to beat.

Cy Young Award Race 2010 - American League

Sure, they deleted Roy Halladay from the normal talk in the American League after the Blue Jay firesale of veteran talent, but that doesn't mean the American League Cy Young race is devoid of perennial contestants.  Beyond a repeat of Grienke, which we think it possible, there's the triumverate of Sabatha, Cliff Lee, and Josh Beckett to contend with.  And don't put it past some Yankee to steal the crown.  There's going to be a lot of wins to share amongst those top four starters out there, and however garners the most, is bound to be among the top contenders.

1. Zach Grienke, P, KCA - Folks, it's really tough to have the kind of season Zach had last year for a team that doesn't win that many games.  And we don't think that season was a fluke.  And it was one of historic and special qualities, ranking as the 2nd best season ever by a Kansas City Royal, behind only Bret Saberhagan's marvelous 1989 season, as well as ranking the #50 best season ever by a pitcher.  Could Grienke fall off the pitching wagon.  Sure.  But we think there's something good going on here.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

2. Javier Vazquez, P, NYA - We know the first time around for Vazquez in New York didn't work out as well as he or the team hoped, but we think it will be different this time around.  With maturity and the success of last year, plus a team that's going to make winners out of a lot of pitchers who give up four runs, we think Vazquez could be due for a repeat of his performance with the Braves in 2009.  But as we said above, we wouldn't be too surprised if the best Yankee pitcher, and thus, highest in the Cy Young voting would be Sabathia or Rivera either.  We don't think it will be Burnett or Pettite though.

3. Felix Hernandez, P, SEA - These are the days when Mariners test the waters and find positive land, land that has playoff muster, and if that's to be the case, they'll be led by the man with the Felix touch.  We fully expect both Hernandez and Cliff Lee to do well in 2010.

Best of the Rest - Sleeper.  It's a bit of a retread of the logic behind our sleeper in the MVP Award for the American League, but if the Tigers do better than expected and contend with the Twins in the Central, it will be behind the bat of Cabrera and the arm of Verlander.  He's our sleeper pick here and it wouldn't be out of the question for him to take the prize.
