2010 NL Cy Young Chase will be a Good One

Last night, Ubaldo Jimenez and the Rockies dominated the Diamondbacks, 12-1.

“He’s one of the most dominating pitchers in baseball right now,” Gonzalez said.

Damn right, CarGo. Ubaldo has now gone 22.3 innings pitched without...can you guess? Giving up and earned run. Yeah. It's the longest streak in Colorado's franchise history. It's safe to say that this guy is a special talent. Not convinced? Check this out, then.

But Ubaldo is not the only National leaguer embarassing opposing lineups this season.

Tim Lincecum is 4-0 with a pretty 1.00 ERA.

Roy Halladay has been nails for Killadelphia, as everyone knew he would be, going 4-1 with a 1.80 ERA and an unbelievable 11:1 K:BB ratio. Yeah. Eleven to one. And oh yeah, he's not a strikeout pitcher.

So far this year we've Philip Hughes, Ricky Romero, Shaun Marcum and others take no-hitters into the eight inning. Ubaldo has a one-up on others in the NL Cy Young race (maybe the hardest award to win in the Bigs?) with his accomplishment versus the Braves recently.

So who's your pick? Tiny Tim? The Good Doctor? Or Big 0-fer Ubaldo?

Either way, it's going to be a great season to witness some of the best pitchers in baseball...history.
