Clayton Kershaw: Should he win the NL Cy Young award? [Poll]
Clayton Kershaw got his 20th win of the season Tuesday night, which ties him with Arizona's Ian Kennedy for most wins in the National League (Kershaw does have five losses to Kennedy's four). The Dodgers ace also has amazing stats, including the best ERA in the NL (2.27) and the most strikeouts (242).
But will it be enough to win the NL Cy Young award this year? He faces some pretty stiff competition in Kennedy and Philadelphia's Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay, all of whom play for contenders (unlike Kershaw).
If you had a Cy Young vote, who would get it? Actually, you do have a vote -- right here! Pick the most deserving pitcher, then leave a comment explaining why you voted the way you did.
