2011 Topps Pitching Triple Crown Winners

The Cy Young Awards will be announced this week. Justin Verlander and Clayton Kershaw both led their respective leagues in victories, strikeouts and ERA, the pitcher's equivalent of the triple crown.  Does this make the shoo-ins for the Cy Young award?  I think Verlander will be the unanimous winner but Kershaw has some competition.  Since the creation of the Cy Young Award in 1956, no  triple crown winner was denied the award. The last time there was both an American League and National League triple crown winner was in 1924.
