NL Cy Young Award Rankings: Gio Gonzalez Makes for a Three-Man Race

Seven days remain in the 2012 MLB season, and we might have a three-man race for the NL Cy Young Award.

(Depending on how you feel about relievers being considered for the award, it might be a four-man competition. But more on that later.)

That doesn't give much time for other contenders to catch R.A. Dickey, who appears to be the front-runner at this point.

If Dickey pitches poorly in his last two starts of the season and the other pitchers competing for the award do well, it's certainly possible that someone else could win the NL Cy Young Award. But this looks like Dickey's award to lose.

In our view, these are the top five leading contenders to win the NL Cy Young Award. (This week also sees the return of three honorable mentions, since so many pitchers are having great seasons.) But is this really down to the top three candidates?

All statistics mentioned here are current as of Sept. 27.
