In looking at our mid-season award picks we had to do a little research to choose the MVP, but when it came to who deserved our Cy Young there was no contest. Our 2016 Mid-Season Cy Young award goes to Clayton Kershaw. This three time Cy Young award winner and former league MVP is having another amazing season. Kershaw has a 1.79 ERA, .727 WHIP with 145 Ks in 121.0 innings. Not to mention the fact that he has one less complete game already this season (3) than he had all of last season(4). He leads pitchers in WAR, ERA, WHIP, BBs/9 and shutouts. With his 11 - 2 record and his dominance on the mound it is no doubt that Kershaw deserves this year's Mid-Season Cy Young. Make no mistake, when watching Kershaw we are watching greatness and this could be his greatest season so far.
We are avid baseball fans, both real life and fantasy, but in the end just a couple of guys arguing over baseball.
