is Craig Kimbrel the second coming? #CYYoung

55%.  55%.  55%.

That’s Craig Kimbrel‘s strikeout rate over his last 30 games of the 2012 season.  109 batters faced 60 down on strikes.

BTW: his K rate vs. lefties and righties is exactly the same in 2012…

50%!

Is Jayson Stark right, does Kimbrel deserve to be the NL Cy Young winner?  Do you prefer the choices of the staff at Baseball Prospectus when they have Kimbrel 6th on their NL ballot?
