Associated Press
NEW YORK -- Toronto's Roy Halladay won the American League Cy Young Award on Tuesday, easily beating Chicago's Esteban Loaiza.



Halladay, who won a major league-high 22 games, received 26 first-place votes and two seconds for 136 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.



Loaiza, who went to spring training with a minor league contract, got two firsts, 16 seconds and five thirds for 63 points.



Boston's Pedro Martinez was third with 20 points, followed by Oakland's Tim Hudson (15), Seattle's Jamie Moyer (12), the Yankees' Andy Pettitte (four) and Oakland's Keith Foulke and Minnesota's Johann Santana (one each).



Halladay, a 26-year-old right-hander, had never won more than eight games in a season before he went 19-7 in 2002.



He finished 22-7 with a 3.25 ERA this year, winning 15 consecutive decisions from May 1 to July 27 and tying for the AL lead with nine complete games.



His 1-0, 10-inning win over Detroit on Sept. 7 was the first extra-inning shutout in the major leagues since Jack Morris led Minnesota over Atlanta in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series.



Loaiza went 21-9 with a 2.90 ERA and a league-high 207 strikeouts. Martinez, a three-time Cy Young winner, was 14-4 with a major league-leading 2.22 ERA.



Toronto pitchers have won the award in four of the last eight seasons, with Halladay following Pat Hentgen (1996) and Roger Clemens (1997 and 1998).



Halladay gets a $100,000 bonus for winning, Loaiza gets $90,000 for finishing second and Martinez $500,000 for finishing third.

As a Halladay owner who suffered through his rough early start but held out faith for him, then rode him through his hot streak, I'm glad to see him get it.

He deserved it, for sure. Loaiza had a nice year as well but hands down the choice was obvious.

Congrats Doc ;-D

I'm 2 for 3. :-)

Funny part is that I thought Loaiza would get it up until the last couple of starts. Loaiza returned to his true form down the stretch and it cost him.

I think my opinion on Loaiza's performance next year is well known. :-D
