Since the inception of the ESPN Cy Young Predictor in 2002, it has "predicted" the winner with 62.5% accuracy. In that same time span, Pitcher Rating has a 81% correlation to the actual voting. The two formulas are in agreement that last year's AL winner should have been Felix Hernandez, as well as Mariano Rivera in '05 and Eric Gagne in '04. The egregious difference between the two formulas comes in 2003, where the Cy Young Predictor rewarded one closer too much and another not enough. A Cy Young Award winner should at least pass the eye test. Keith Foulke and Mark Prior? Seriously? Foulke finished seventh in the vote, Prior taking third. C'mon Cy Young Predictor, the chances of Heath Bell winning the NL award is greater than that of Josh Johnson? And why exactly are Jon Lester, Justin Verlander, Cliff Lee, and Mat Latos nowhere near the top of the ESPN list? 2010 ESPN Cy Young Predictor AL NL CC Sabathia Ubaldo Jimenez David Price Adam Wainwright Carl Pavano Heath Bell Andy Pettitte Josh Johnson Rafael Soriano Roy Halladay Jon Lester Brian Wilson Neftali Feliz Billy Wagner 2010 Ross Clites Pitcher Rating AL NL CC Sabathia Ubaldo Jimenez Jon Lester Adam Wainwright Cliff Lee Josh Johnson David Price Roy Halladay Carl Pavano Heath Bell Justin Verlander Mat Latos Rafael Soriano Brian Wilson
