2012 Pi Young Award – April Update

With the first month of the season gone (already!), let’s see which hurlers are leading their respective leagues in the race for the annual “Pi Young Award“.

First up . . . the American League/no innings requirement.  A pair of PaleHose lead the charge as Chris Sale and Gavin Floyd come in just under the magic 3.14, with the Jays’ Ricky Romero .04 above it.

The race is exactly the same for the American League/ERA qualifiers group, as Sale, Floyd and Romero all have at least one inning pitched per team game to date.

In the National League/no innings requirement race, none other than 49-year-old Jamie Moyer is leading with 3.14 on the button (3.1395 to be more precise).  New Nationals hurler Edwin Jackson is next at 3.16, followed by Ryan (not Brandon) Webb and David Hernandez, each at 3.18.
