Guillen supports Gio for Cy Young

MIAMI -- With the top three candidates for the National League Cy Young Award all residing in the National League East, Ozzie Guillen has seen plenty of each pitcher this season. So who would the Marlins manager cast his vote for between Nats lefty Gio Gonzalez, Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and Braves closer Craig Kimbrel?

"Wow. It's hard," Guillen said. "It's a very tough one, but I'll say Gio, because I've known Gio for a long time and he's from Miami. I want people from Miami to be on my side. ... It's going to be tough. The kid from Atlanta has Nintendo numbers, it's unbelievable. You got to look at it, like 'really?' Dickey, I think, 20 games with a second-to-last-place team. He did it himself, [has] a great history and a knuckleballer. You don't see that often, it could be the one shot of his life.

"All you guys that got a vote, you have a tough job to do. ... No matter who you pick, you're not going to be wrong."
