2K15 AL CY YOUNG Leaderboard in "WORD around the WARNING Track"...In a wide-open race the 'Stros KEUCHEL, the Blue Birds PRICE, and the Swingin' Elephants GRAY are in the mix! #ALCyYoungLeaderBoard2K15 #MonstersOnTheBump #WordAroundTheWarningTrack

The Junior Circuit talking the 2k15 Cy Young Leaders is not an easy task to sort out. Yes there are three to maybe four to five pitchers that are in the lead mix but these next few weeks could sort out even more.

The Houston Astros LHP Dallas Keuchel has slowed slightly but has been there all 162. The Toronto Blue Jays have LHP David Price but he has a teammate that are worthy as well in LHP Mark Buehrle.

What about Oakland Athletics RHP and Ace Sonny Gray who doesn't have a lot of W's but his digits across the board are superb? Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox like Gray his 2K15 W-L are not super but the digits are off the charts! Chris Archer from The Rays also fits in that Gray/Sale Category looking at his overall digits!

Let's take a look at the 2K15 Leaderboard for AL Cy Young as we get closer and closer to October Hardball:

"Word around the Warning Track
2K15 AL Cy Young
Top 5

Note: Pitchers are in order as of September 6, 2015

1. Dallas Keuchel LHP #StrosShow dba @KidKeuchy

He leads the Junior Circuit with 17 W's and opposing hitters are only hitting .211 against him. Those 185 punch outs are 5th in the Majors and the 'Stros lead the AL West...

2. David Price LHP #BlueBirds dba @DAVIDprice14

He has put the Blue Birds on his back and made them a a Fall Classic Fav coming out of the Junior Circuit.  His 14 wins are #2 in the AL and 196 SO with just 41 walks means he is right there...

3. Sonny Gray #SwinginElephants dba @SonnyGray2

He only has a dozen W's but look closer that 2.36 ERA (2nd AL) and opponents hitting a league low .206 against him...that is Butter not Parkay! He has to be in the Mix as is (WAR) is among the leaders yes he could win it with a strong finish...

4. Chris Sale #PaleHose dba South Side Lefty 49
(Video below)

Sale has had a monster season and in any other season he might be the front-runner but there is time. Those 239 SO (1st AL) stand extremely tall but that 3.29 ERA does not. His control is five-star as he has only walked hitters 36 times. Can he make a run with at least 5 more starts left?

5. Chris Archer #ItsARaysLife dba @ChrisArcher42

He has slowed a little of  late but 228 SO (2nd AL) and a sparkling .288 ERA and keeping the Rays above water and in the AL Wild Card Hunt is a feat for Mr. Archer!   That 12-11 2k15 W-L might be cause for concern though...

Others receiving consideration...
