Notes- I don't typically think closers should get too much consideration for the Cy Young, but Valverde has been perfect for Detroit, Kimbrel is amazing, and Rivera continues to defy age.

Even though I am an Angels fan, and felt Weaver should have been a much stronger consideration last year - this year is all Verlander for the AL. He has had a career year and it should be all his, every last 1st place vote should go to him, or that writer should lose his vote, lol.

For NL, that's a little tighter and while I think Kershaw is the winner, arguments can be made for any of the top 4 in your list. It will be interesting to see how the NL Cy pans out.
