Lincecum Wins NL Cy Young

Real Projected
Lincecum Lincecum
Webb Webb
Santana Sabathia
Lidge Dempster
Sabathia Santana
Dempster Billingsley

Two of the top three isn't bad, after that things fall apart a bit. I'll post one of these for the American League results as well, which come out on Thursday.
