Justin Verlander: +125
You know what's great about SportsInteraction.com? If you want odds on something, like say who'll win the AL Cy Young award, they'll come up with something in a heartbeat. So we're now handicapping which junior circuit pitcher will walk away with the honor at season's end. In a normal season, Justin Verlander (10-3, 2.38 ERA) would be a shoe in but there are a number of candidates nipping at his heels.
Josh Beckett: +250
To quote LL Cool J, "Don't call it a comeback" for Red Sox hurler Josh Beckett (6-2, 1.89 ERA). How about a marvelous bounce back then? Beckett played through injuries last year but it resulted in his career worst campaign. Now healthy again, J-Beck is reminding bettors why the Sox traded away Hanley Ramirez to get him. The former World Series MVP has been particularly effective against the Yanks, with a 3-0 record and a 0.90 ERA in three starts against the Bombers.
Jered Weaver: +350
Total bettors know all about Weaver's dominance on the diamond. The under has hit in seven of his last eight starts, and that's with oddsmakers throwing out a few 6.5-run totals too. The lanky righty sports a spiffy 0.92 WHIP and a 4-1 strikeout to walk ratio.
James Shields: +650
You got to like the value here on Shields. He plays in baseball's most followed division and if the Rays win the AL East crown or even nab the Wildcard, Shields will get a boatload of credit for the accomplishment. Don't forget, baseball writers, new and old school, both love a pitcher who can finish a game and Shields has six complete games already.
Felix Hernandez: +800
You can't count out the reigning AL Cy Young winner but King Felix (8-6, 3.19 ERA) has some serious catching up to do. He'll probably have to produce better numbers than last season for him to take the honor in succession. It seems like the competition is much deeper then time around.
CC Sabathia: +800
CC (10-4, 3.25 ERA) is always in the mix for the Cy Young but it'll be tough for him to finish ahead of the pack this time around. Wins is normally the category he leads the majors in but Verlander and Weaver are on pace with the Yankees' ace hurler.
Michael Pineda: +800
Pineda's numbers are on par with the other big names on this list but you've got to wonder if the rookie's arm won't tire or even if the Mariners won't start limiting his innings pitched in the second half of the season.

Monster Run in All Sports leads to a Super Tuesday Card!
Tuesday Free Play from Doc's Sports Take #903 New York Mets over Miami Marlins (Tuesday, 7:10pm EST) The Mets aren't going to continue winning 75% of their games, but this is a good team. The lineup has some holes (especially with the current injury situation), but New York has a terrific defense, a solid bullpen and they do a lot of the little things that winning teams do. Rafael Montero makes his first start of the season after working in the pen. He has electric stuff and can make hitters look foolish in the box. The big question with him is his control and whether he can keep it together for five or six innings. Against some teams it would be tough, but Miami is a free swinging team that leads the National League in strikeouts. That bodes well for Montero and I think he'll put up a good performance. The Marlins go with David Phelps and he hasn't been very good overall despite a 3.55 ERA. The Mets are the better team and we'll take the underdog price.
