Best MLB Pitchers of 2012

The Top TenXW

1Justin Verlander

Of course he's the best he's my favorite pitcher for the tigers of all time. He should be in the hall of fame he's amazing.

Justin is the man. He has a few bad games or innings but they're very rR. In my eyes, Roy Halladay is just old news. Its time for a new young player to take the spotlight.

Justin Verlander is the best pitcher in AL in my opinion. His 12-7 record isn't impressive, but his 2.51 ERA is, not to
Mention he has the 10th smallest amount of run support in the MLB

2Clayton Kershaw

Clayton kershaw is the best, I don't even know why he is #2.

Love kershaw (although I'm not a dodgers fun).

I'm not a dodgers fun but I love kershaw!

3Roy Halladay

Roy Halladay is the man! The "perfect pitcher" no pun intended! He's so good that MLB 2k12's million dollar challenge is based off him! Phillies fan for life!

Score3 for the w
Not a Lot o strikeouts anymore but still dominant

4CC Sabathia
5Felix Hernedez

Felix has won a Cy Young. Plays for the mariners and still has tones of wins and low ERA. Been best pitcher in late 2012 and even got ahead of David Price, Justin Verlander and Jered Weaver in nearly all stats.

6Jered Weaver

He got 20 wins this year and missed 3 starts because of his back injury

Jared weaver this season has been lights out. He is leading the AL in wins and not to forget he spent some time on the DL too.

7Stephen Strasburg

As long as Strasburg is healthy, he will be the most dominant pitcher over the next decade, bar none. Once in a generation talent that will prove the hype was for real, watch and enjoy baseball fans!

8Cliff Lee

Do not let his record fool you. He still was among the league leaders in most other categories - miles500

9Jon Lester
10Tim Lincecum

The Contenders

11Matt Cain

He pitched the perfect game this year in the first place. Also everyone that was amazing last year are all doing terrible now like halladay, lee, lincecum.

12Ian Kennedy
13Aroldis Chapman

Aroldis Champman makes flames come off his over powering fastball

14David Price
15R. A. Dickey

Good pitcher do not need to throw hard but the good direction is more important

16Zack Greinke
17Fernando Rodney
18Bartolo Colon
19Jake Peavy
20Chris Sale
