SABR Hornsby Chapter colleagues:
Time to start thinking about your Cy Young picks for this season.
Ballots are due by midnight, Sunday September 5. Email your prognostications to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the close race in the NL last year, the Cy Young voting is being expanded. Consequently, please predict the TOP FIVE voting finishers in each league. In case a tie needs to be broken, also predict the ERA of the NL winner.
So, your ballot should look like:
AL Winner, AL Runner up, AL #3 vote getter, AL #4, AL #5
NL Winner, NL Runner up, NL #3 vote getter, NL #4, NL #5; NL Winner’s ERA

Best regards & good luck, Monte
