Finally blew one Cy

Last night as Tad points out JJ blew one. T also mentions the psychological damage done to a team after such a game. What hurts more is the chance JJ had of a Mariner getting a .......(hush now) Cy Young award.

Yes, it is only barely past the midway point in the season, but using ESPN's Cy Young predictor CYP=((5*IP/9)-ER)+(SO/12)+(SV*2.5)+(shutouts)+((W*6)-(L*2))+(victory bonus)), and assume a Save for the night. He would have a 110, second only to Haren of the Athletics.

Now he is 5th.

Relievers CAN win the Cy Young, but its unlikely. JJ would need to be perfect the rest of the way AND the M's would have to make the playoffs. As you mention, not blowing the game in Texas would have helped too!
