AL Cy Young Award contenders
CC Sabathia, Yankees
Stats: 21-7, 3.18 ERA, 197 K, 1.19 WHIP
Sabathia's win total is impressive, but he's also backed by one of the most potent lineups in the game. He rebounded from a poor showing last week vs. fellow Cy Young contender David Price of the Rays with a solid performance Tuesday to beat the Blue Jays 6-1 and clinch a playoff spot for the Yankees.
The support he gets from a lineup of stars, plus his high opponent batting average of .243, may cost him in the eyes of some voters.
