Royals End Of Season Awards Part 3: Pitcher of The Year

After getting a couple of the obvious ones out of the way, we move into more uncertain territory; Pitcher of the Year.  I have gone back and forth on this, whether to make it exclusive for starters, or to include relievers.  I decided that since there is a separate award for relievers, I might as well make this one exclusive for the starters, which I think makes things nice and muddied.

Personally, I am little torn on it.  Without considering facts, going based on a gut reaction, I'd probably say Bruce Chen, but I may be crediting him for both this season and last year.

The advanced metrics will tell you to vote Felipe; he tied Jeff Francis in fWAR in about two-thirds of the innings.

How much credit do you give for Luke Oplakia's second half of the year?

Tough call for me, so I leave it to the community.
