Best MLB Pitchers of 2012

The Top Ten

1 Justin Verlander 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.

He is the pitcher of the decade

He is the best hands down

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

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 CC Sabathia Carsten Charles Sabathia Jr. is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball.
5 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.

6 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.

7 Cliff Lee

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

8 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!

9 Jon Lester
10 Tim Lincecum

The Newcomers

? Barry Zito

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

He has a 0.61 ERA through 73.1 IP to this point. What more do I need to say. It's not even meant to happen. It gives me nightmares thinking about it.

18 Bartolo Colon
19 Jake Peavy
20 Chris Sale
21 Gio Gonzalez
22 Craig Kimbrel

A star on my fantasy team and my vote for the CY Young award. He's clearly done a better job than Chapman, with his ERA and WHIP both significantly lower, and his k:bb ratio is even better. When Dennis Eckersley won the CY Young as a closer his stats weren't even this good.R.A. dickey gets props, but his season has only been monumental for a knuckleballer, not for a regular pitcher.

23 Johnny Cueto
24 Madison Bumgarner

A World Series for crying out loud
