chris carpenter has some case-making of his own to do tonight if he wants the cy young; he seems to be losing ground among voters to dontrelle willis, who outdueled pedro the other night. i think dontrelle has a pretty damn good claim on the award; he does have 5 losses more than carp, but the cards have taken chris off the hook for at least 5 losses this year with late rallies. i'd still give carp the edge -- his batting avg allowed is 16 points lower than dontrelle's, and his ops against is 30 points lower. but the gap is narrowing.
