Best MLB Pitchers of 2012

The Top Ten

1 Justin 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

2 Clayton Kershaw Clayton Kershaw Clayton Edward Kershaw is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball.

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!

He led the NL in WHIP and ERA for the second straight year!

3 Roy 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

4 CC Sabathia
5 Felix 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.

6 Jered 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.

7 Stephen 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!

8 Cliff Lee

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

9 Jon Lester
10 Tim Lincecum

The Contenders

11 Matt 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.

12 Ian Kennedy
13 Aroldis Chapman

Aroldis Champman makes flames come off his over powering fastball

14 David Price
15 R. A. Dickey

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

16 Zack Greinke
17 Fernando Rodney
18 Bartolo Colon
19 Jake Peavy
20 Chris Sale
21 Gio Gonzalez
22 Craig Kimbrel
23 Johnny Cueto
24 Madison Bumgarner

A World Series for crying out loud
