"Let us go forth a while, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our closed rooms...
The game of ball is glorious."

Will he or won't he?

Win the Cy Young Award, that is.

Johan Santana is the obvious choice--even his closest competition for the award, Boston's Curt Schilling, has said as much. But Johan does not pitch for an east coast team, and so we cannot be sure. Part of me says he'd have to end the season 25-0 with an ERA under 1.00 to even have a shot, and part of me has a flicker of faith in the baseball writers. But only a flicker, mind you.

It's hard to believe in anything that involves voting, these days...
