AL MVP: don't see how vlad can beat shohei, but if the former wins the triple crown it will be interesting
NL CY: burnes is incredible and max is legendary but wheeler has literally thrown 30-40 more innings, which is a lot!

The AL Cy Young is rather uninspiring. Whoever wins would finish 4th or 5th most years.

I think after Cole’s start today, bringing his ERA over 3; Ray has to have the edge now. He’s leading in ERA, ERA+, strikeouts and bWAR. Fangraphs, for whatever reason, isn’t as high on Ray as they are Cole or even Eovaldi, but I doubt that’s going to effect things much. And, tho it shouldn’t really factor into the award, he also hit 1,000 career IP this season and became the all time leader in K/9.

Had no idea Robbie Ray was so high on that list--never really paid much attention to him before this year. I would have assumed Sale was #1.

I have no fucking idea why the jays broadcast team hasn’t made a bigger deal out of it.
