You not only misread my post, you missed the intent of it as well. I don't really object if Dickey wins, but I think there are better fits.
edit - that goes for slateman too.
Why even bring up future season performances then if you agree that they're irrelevant to the award?
It's pretty simple really. The Cy Young goes to the pitcher with the best performance from that year. This year that is Dickey (or Kershaw).
In response to your edit: Fair enough. Out of curiosity though who is your choice for the Cy Young?
