When it comes to the American League award races, the MVP race has hogged all the headlines. It's all Miguel Cabrera and all Mike Trout, all the time.
But never mind them for now. Though it hasn't gotten as much attention, the AL Cy Young race is just as intriguing as the AL MVP race, and has been for virtually the entire season. It hasn't inspired any wars the way the MVP race has, but I'd say it's at least inspired a few small skirmishes.
Just like the MVP race, there is no clear favorite in the AL Cy Young race. David Price is an excellent candidate with his 20 wins and league-leading 2.56 ERA, but guys like Jered Weaver, Felix Hernandez and Justin Verlander are right there with him.
So who has the edge in the Cy Young race with the 2012 season coming to a close?
Good question. Behold the last set of weekly rankings you'll see this season.
