I agree, but at this moment in time, I'd give Price the edge. Most wins, lowest ERA, 2nd most K's, though highest WHIP.
I'm going to just interject and say Verlander beats Price in IP, H/9, BB/9, K/9, K/BB, ERA+, FIP, FIP-, rWAR, and fWAR.
Wins is arbitrary as fuck.

How? Price literally only went the distance once out of his 16 wins and it was back in April against the Rays. He's been helped out by Fernando Rodney and the rest of the Rays bullpen (y'know, the reason he has 'gotten' 15 of his 16 wins). His run support hasn't been bad either, because the Rays have averaged 6.0625 runs/game in his 16 wins. (I will say though that the Rays defense has been less than stellar which has helped him a lot along with the pen).
I could see Price being Cy Young (I thought he would personally before the season started) but it's not as clear cut of a choice as you seem to be making it out to be. Verlander is more than deserving of going back to back.
