The Fake Teams-voted Cy Young winner for 2008 is San Frnacisco Giant Tim Lincecum. With striekouts being so important in fantasy baseball, this is not too surprising. While Brandon Webb's 22 Wins is impressive, the long-time fantasy baseball owner has learned about the fickleness of the stat.
I would be surprised if the BBWAA didn't agree with Tim lincecum. I am more curious to see how the rest of the ballot shakes out. Outside of Webb, the other candidates were missing the Wins, NL service time or p.r. necessary to mount serious candidacies.
