NL Wins

It's looking very likely that the NL will not have any pitchers with 20 wins, again. Of course they should be able to top the 16-win leaders of last season, but maybe not by that much. Chien-Ming Wang, who won three more games than any NL starter last season, gave the NL a 1-month head start, as he began the year injured and didn't win his first game until May 5th. Well, today he picked up win #16, more than anybody in the NL.

I'm feeling pretty good about my prediction of 19 wins for Wang despite knowing he'd start the year on the DL. He should have 5 starts left. Pettitte and Wang combined to win 11 games in August, that's 2 more wins than the Yankees had in April.
