From the comments section at a blog post at The Hardball Times:

If he (Carpenter) had been on the ballots in place of Vazquez and Haren, and in the exact same placements as Vazquez and Haren, Carpenter would only have received four more points – and that would still have been two fewer than Lincecum.

In other words, if Law or Carroll put Carpenter on their ballots in either the two or three spot, Lincecum still wins. Carroll’s and Law’s votes, in the end, didn’t keep Carpenter from winning the Cy.

Not sure if passing on that piece of information will help Keith Law from getting stalked by angry Cardinal fans, but I’m just throwing it out there.

Another hat tip to Tango.

Erik Manning

Erik became addicted to Cardinals baseball as a young lad growing up on the mean streets of O'Fallon, MO. He moved away to Tulsa to attend Bible College, where he met his wife, who talked him into moving to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, also known as the Bermuda triangle of baseball. His dream is to see the blackouts end, and his other interests are theology and philosophy of religion. He is the parent of two young boys.
