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.
