Happy Cy Young Award day! It’s a day to celebrate the best pitchers in the game and make some snarky jokes about, ahem, pitchers who are not necessarily the best. I’ll try to stick to the former category, although you know how hard it is for me.
But yes. David Price and R.A. Dickey cleaned up for the AL and NL respectively and from the Giants, Matt Cain finished sixth, which is his highest finish for this award yet. Yu Darvish also got one vote – albeit a fifth place one – which made me ridiculously happy.
Oh, did I also mention that he has Ranger-themed headphones?
I didn’t have a huge stake in the Cy Young Award this year (that is, there wasn’t anyone I was particularly rooting for) so let’s just look at cute photos of Tim Lincecum’s dog Cy and be done with it.
Lastly, the Giants made Jeremy Affeldt’s deal officialofficial today, but it was basically already officialofficial, so no biggie. Peppermint mochas to all, most especially Dickey and Price who have a lot to be proud of this evening. Congratulations, gentlemen.
