Before the announcement of the NL Cy Young winner this evening, fans all over the country are giving their opinion on who should win. With two Dodgers among the finalists, it’s no surprise that the Los Angeles fan vote is split.

What is a surprise, however, is who they are split between. According to a poll done by the Los Angeles Times, a small majority of fans think Jake Arrieta should be the award winner.

There is no doubt that Arrieta is a deserving winner, but seeing Los Angeles vote for the Chicago ace is a bit eye-popping. Unfortunately for Arrieta, fan votes don’t count for anything. The award has already been voted on by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

This isn’t the first time fans in Los Angeles supported Arrieta. The Cubs ace pitched a no-hitter at Dodgers stadium and after the final strike, fans erupted in cheers.

If Arrieta does win, he will join Manager of the Year winner Joe Maddon and Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant as BBWAA award winners. They would be the first group to take home three BBWAA awards from the same team in the same year since 1991 and the first Cubs team since 1984.
