“No question,” said Johnson, asked if he feels Gonzalez is worthy for the award. “No doubt about it. I know Dickey gets a lot of attention, but you’re talking about a last-place club. It’s a little bit different. We’ve been on top and getting all those wins.”

And as he has after each of his past several wins, wins and games that beef his resume up for the voters, Gonzalez simply deflected any individual awards discussion. His focus, he insists, is on the game at hand: Monday, that was beating the beleaguered Mets – and he did.

“I’m definitely focused on trying to get some more wins for these guys,” he said. “When you start looking at one thing, it just drives you crazy. I think the way we’re doing it is having fun and continue to play our baseball so if it comes, it comes.”
