C.C. Sabathia wins Cy Young Award

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.

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.

The Colorado Rockies have won 21 out of 22 games to make their first World Series appearance. The Cleveland Indians, seemingly another team of destiny, have shown the world they are for real and trust that Red Sox nation doesn’t know what hit ’em.
