Ken Rosenthal Thinks Yovani Gallardo Is Pretty Good
Over at foxsports.com Ken picks Yovani to win the NL Cy Young in 2009. Says Yovani could be this seasons Cliff Lee. I wouldn't say he his quite like Cliff Lee, yes like Lee it would be kind of a shock if Yovani won the award. But here is the thing, Lee was a virtual cast off and nobody, got demoted to AAA by the Indians. Gallardo at 23 is the Brewers ace and most people/fans around MLB know about Gallardo and how special he is/will be. I have to disagree with Ken, I doubt Yo will win the Cy Young this year (but he will win a couple at some point in his career), although it would be cool. What I think he will do is be very good, win at least 16 games have an ERA under 4, WHIP around 1.20, 200 K's and 180-190 inning pitched. Any which way it's always nice to see a national baseball reporter give a Brewers player some props. Thanks Ken.
