Can Verlander go back-to-back?

The top pitchers in the American and National Leagues, as voted by the Baseball Writers Association of America, will be rewarded with the Cy Young award. Last year's winner, Detroit's Justin Verlander (pictured), Seattle's Felix Hernandez and Tampa Bay's David Price are expected to battle for the award in the AL, while Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and Washington's Gio Gonzalez are the contenders in the NL.
