The Portland/Chicago game was great. Portland is the truth. What was Ben Gordon thinking on that last turnover before Jack’s 3 point play? As far as Seattle, they have to somehow get consistency or they’ll be in a position to draft Michael Beasley. That might be a good thing for Oklahoma City ;)

Wasn’t a surprise to me brotha

I’m shocked. Beckett second.

Sports writers were swinging on Beckett’s jock the last two months of the season. There is no denying Beckett was a monster during the playoffs. Anyone outside of Cleveland who seriously entertained the notion Sabathia would win this award is a liar. Straight up. If anything, I thought his teammate Fausto Carmona would takes some votes and Beckett would win in a landslide. He’s the first Indians pitcher since Gaylord Focker Perry won the award in ’72. Does it make up for Albert Belle not winning in ’95? Of course not.

C.C. was 19-7 with a 3.21 earned run average. Maybe the reasoning behind Sabathia winning was he pitched 40 more innings than Beckett. Becket was on the dl–most likely to rest the ace–and maybe durability was a question.

Sabathia received 18 of 29 first place votes.
