Stating the Case for Each Top 2013 Cy Young Candidate

With just 24 days left in the MLB regular season, starting pitchers are down to their final four or five chances to make a case for the Cy Young Award.

As such, it's time to get down to brass tacks.

Back in the doldrums of summer, it was perfectly acceptable to start sentences in these award projections with "If Patrick Corbin" or "Maybe Hisashi Iwakuma," but September is no time for those pie in the sky suggestions.

There are four legitimate candidates for the AL Cy Young Award. And barring a nuclear meltdown at Dodger Stadium, the NL Cy Young Award has already been won, though I'll make a case for 1.75 other pitchers as possibilities to steal a first-place vote or two from Clayton Kershaw.
