2013 Cy Young Awards

Below are the top MLB pitchers with the Cy Young award winners, Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer highlighted. The NL had more dominant pitchers than AL and Clayton Kershaw was an easy choice. The AL field is a bit more difficult since the difference between Hisashi_Iwakuma’s 6.3 and Max Scherzer’s 5.0 WAA isn’t that great. It is understandable that Scherzer’s win loss record and that his pitching helped bring Detroit into the playoffs would put him over the top.
