Felix Hernandez wins AL Cy Young

Quote:
NEW YORK -- For once, Felix Hernandez got all the support he needed for a big win.

The Seattle Mariners ace earned the AL Cy Young Award on Thursday despite a modest 13-12 record. His major league-leading 2.27 ERA and superior stats put him far ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays' David Price and the New York Yankees' CC Sabathia and their impressive win-loss numbers.

Victimized by the Mariners' poor hitting all season, Hernandez found ample backing with the voters in this pitchers' duel. They clearly recognized how little the last-place Mariners helped him -- in 10 starts, they were either shut out or held to one run.

"This confirms the Cy Young is an award not only for the pitcher with the most wins but the most dominant," a teary-eyed Hernandez said while celebrating with relatives at the family home in Valencia, Venezuela.

King Felix got 21 of the 28 first-place votes and 167 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. The 24-year-old right-hander led the league in innings (249 2/3), was second in strikeouts (232) and held AL opponents to the lowest batting average (.212).

Price, who went 19-6 with a 2.72 ERA, was second with four first-place votes and 111 points. Sabathia, who was 21-7 with a 3.18 ERA, drew the other three first-place votes and finished third at 102.

Re: Felix Hernandez wins AL Cy Young

I can just imagine joek right now:

"Sabathia had 21 wins, therefore he should have won the CY Young"
