Looking Back At My 2013 Cy Young Award Predictions

2013 Predictions : Cy Young

The 2013 season is right around the corner and I wanted to take a stab at predicting who I think will win the American League and National League Cy Young Awards. Since my psychic ability is about as good as the economy these days I would not put much stock into these predictions as they are merely for fun but here goes anyway.

The winner of the Cy Young Award in the American League will be Jered Weaver. Jered will have an insane amount of run support with Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, and company behind him, the defense is always going to be good on a Mike Scoscia team and a team that includes Mike Trout, and the bullpen should be pretty strong as well. I can Jered Weaver winning as many as 22 games next season for the Halos.

Finished 11-8 3.27 ERA 1.140 WHIP

The winner of the Cy Young Award in the National League will be Adam Wainwright. He showed a lot of little glimpses of coming back healthy from Tommy John surgery last season and I fully expect him to build on that in 2013. With a great bullpen behind him and the usual Cardinals lineup I can see Adam Wainwright pushing for 20 wins again in 2013. I know it is probably not the popular pick like a Stephen Strasburgh but that is my prediction and I'm sticking to it.

Finished 18-9 3.01 ERA 1.079 WHIP

Wrong and wrong again, again by a lot. I am glad I do not play the lottery or do any kind of sports betting because I could not afford the domain and the hosting for this site. I suck, there I said it. Jered Weaver did not come close to my expectations although Adam Wainwright had a great comeback 2013 season. Wainwright is a finalist for the award in the National League so we will see if he nails it down tonight at 6:00 pm ET on MLB Network. 


  1. This girl holding her funny. A perfect compliment. LOL, as they say.

  2. I got a few more of these planned lol

  3. This is not the best configuration for the out field but, unless we can find a cost-effective FA, we can produce more runs than last year, with this one;
    LF Soriano
    with-Mesa, Neal or others
    I would cut Wells and have Itchy on the bench if need be!
    Think of it, we went 3/4 of the year without Grandy, Soriano, A-Rod, Jeter and Tex!
    We will (Hope) have Tex, Soriano back three power bats...better yet, three we never had when it counted. Adding those three bats to the mix I think we can have a Zolo type in the out-field and give him time to show what he can really do as a full-time player.

    What think you guys?

  4. I am pretty sure Neal is gone. We DFA'd him and let him go last season and I dont see him coming back, not after we signed Richardson for AAA depth. Mesa was also outrighted off the 40 man at the end of last season too so not looking good for a pinstripes return for him either.

    I am not entirely sold on Zoilo but he is a better option then Ichiro and Wells so at this point I would have to agree with throwing that lineup out there.

    1. The back-ups that are gone (you named) are a (this hurts) mis.t.a.k.e. Thanks for reminding me I had glossed over it.

    2. Mesa was pretty replaceable. He struck out more than Curtis Granderson did. Neal was pretty good for us and I was shocked to see him go. I think it will be ok though between Zoilo and Ramon Flores we should be ok with outfield depth for a year or so.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
