I called it though. The 20 wins got Price the award.
EDIT: Just looked at the voting. Two idiots (both from the LA area, shocker) actually put Weaver over Verlander on their ballots and basically cost him the award. There is no argument for Weaver over Verlander. None.
Price over Verlander I have no problem with. He did win 3 more games and had a slightly lower ERA. Weaver, despite winning 3 more games, had a higher ERA, nearly 100 fewer strikeouts, and pitched in 50 fewer innings.
It's not unreasonable to vote for Price over Verlander. Weaver over Verlander I agree is completely ludicrous.
