Rosenthal picks Gallardo for NL Cy Young
Saw this posted by my friends at Brew Crew Ball: Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com picked Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo as his preseason favorite for the National League Cy Young Award. Rosenthal thinks Gallardo could have a breakout a’la Indians lefty Cliff Lee, who won the AL Cy Young Award last season.
It’s certainly an interesting pick in a league that features the likes of Brandon Webb and Johan Santana. And if manager Ken Macha did not want Gallardo to be rattled by the pressure of working Opening Day, I’m guessing the skipper won’t be pointing him to FoxSports.com this evening.
(On a totally unrelated note, other than the fact it involves a Brewers fan blog, go check out Al’s Ramblings and consider sponsoring him for charity.)
