NL Cy Young?

If you care about playoffs and who led the team there, I guess it's Aaron Nola of the Phillies? He would be unthinkable in the old days, going 10-13 with a 3.36ERA. but he's thrown 198 innings so far, and his FIP and xFIP (2.66; 2.81) suggest better.

Carolos Rodon is striking out more per 9 (11.88) than any other pitcher in the NL. He's 13-8, 2.98 ERA and a very nice 2.34 FIP. But he plays for the giants.

Sandy Alcantara is the only pitcher to reach 200 IP in either league, by some distance. He's at 220 IP, with a 2.32 ERA, and 14-8 for the Marlins. (I think he should win?)

then there's Max Fried, of the Braves of course, 13-7, 2.50 ERA, 180 IP

Maybe Fried is the guy, if you value both playoff contention and performance

The ROY question is a tough one, but I think it'll be Strider--fastest ever to 200 strikeouts I heard today.

alcantara for cy imo

that said, god bless rodon (and judge) for betting on themselves and winning

also i saw somewhere that the barves' *rookies* have accumulated more WAR this season than like three whole teams? i hate to see it, but that is impressive as hell

Goldschmidt and Arenado have both slumped in September; if they split votes, I wonder if Machado can take MVP. Throw in Freeman and Betts, and I suspect it will be a very close vote.
