King Felix wins AL Cy Young

Postby Havok1517 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 4:06 pm

Felix Hernandez was named the AL's Cy Young Award winner on Thursday after receiving 21 of 28 first-place votes.

Score one for progress. Despite his 13-12 record, Hernandez led the league in ERA (2.27), innings pitched (249 2/3) and finished second in strikeouts (232) and WHIP (1.06). If the Mariners fielded anything close to a respectable lineup, his win-loss record would have been very different. The voters should be congratulated for getting this one right. David Price, who finished second on the ballot, received four first-place votes, while CC Sabathia, who finished third on the ballot, received three first-place votes. Jon Lester, Jered Weaver and Clay Buchholz also received strong support from the voters.

+1 for voters not being retards. Did some old voters out of touch with modern baseball retire last year or something?

I feel shocked. Seriously though, I never thought they'd give the reward to guy with a 13-12 record, regardless of how good his other stats are.

Local clown Mike Adams started to do the same thing up here; it took me .3 seconds to change it to 98.5, where DA started saying you can't call Greg Oden a bust, it's like calling Bo Jackson and Gale Sayers a bust because injuries not performance was the problem.

Had a nice quiet ride home from work tonight.
