They've been the two best pitchers in baseball this season, but which of Clayton Kershaw or Zack Greinke deserves the National League Cy Young award? On this week's edition of The Strike Zone, hosts Ted Keith and Stephen Cannella debate which of the Dodgers' prized pitchers has been the Senior Circuit's top hurler, as well as who each of them would choose to to start the first game of the playoffs for Los Angeles.

Along with their NL Cy Young choices, Ted and Stephen also talk about the race for the playoffs in the NL and whether this October will be the last chance for Don Mattingly with the Dodgers, then pick their players to watch in September, including former MVP Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, the red-hot Jackie Bradley Jr. and some other intriguing names for 2016. Stick around to the end and you'll also learn why Stephen has a bone to pick with former Mets second baseman Gregg Jefferies.
