A.L. Cy Young Watch

I was afraid this might happen.

↵

It looks like this watch might get pretty boring, pretty soon. Tuesday night, Justin Verlander pitched brilliantly again: 7-2/3 innings, one run, one walk, eight strikeouts, ftw.

↵

Verlander's now 18-5 with a 2.31 ERA. His ERA is just slightly higher than Jered Weaver's and significantly lower than CC Sabathia's. Verlander is 13 games over .500; Weaver's eight games over, Sabathia's nine games over.

↵

These are the only three viable candidates for the award, and it's now obviously Verlander's to lose.
