Zack has to deal with the clowns that comprise the Royals.

I hate cherry-picking statistics since they can be misleading...#5 above is a great example of a voter doing his/her own research and coming up with some meaningful stuff.

I'm kinda lazy though so it's probably not a big deal

This is definitely a tight competition. The tipping point for me was Wins...not just his win total, but the team's win total in his starts. Greinke's Royals and Halladay's Blue Jays managed just 17 Wins each in their 30+ respective starts, while the Mariners went 25-9 in Hernandez' starts. Sabathia, Verlander and Lester fell in between. Granted, much goes into a team win other than the starting pitcher's effort, but Hernandez was nearly unbeatable after May 20. He was 15-2, while his team went 20-5 in his starts, and in those 25 starts, he lasted 6+ innings 24 times (5.2 in the other). I don't think there's any way that Seattle is above .500 or contending for a wildcard in September without him...not even close.
