Quoting Dragon-wings (Thread starter):
AL Cy Young Award - C.C. Sabathia (Cleveland Indians)

As much as I pushed that Beckett would win, I was reminded today that Sabathia didn't have the run support that Beckett did. I'm glad, though, on a separate note, that a BoSox pitcher didn't win the award.

The only one that I believe shouldn't be on the list is Andruw Jones, he's living on his past. Speaking of past, Greg Maddux is probably going to collect Golden Glove Awards after he retires, how many in a row for him now?

I don't know how many in a row, but he won a total of 17.

And I was reminded today that Sabathia pitched approximately 85 innings against teams with a winning record, and his ERA for those innings was around 3.30. Beckett pitched approximately 118 innnings against teams with a winning record, and his ERA for those innings was around 2.80.

Here goes Chowd Nation again... this time regurgitating manipulated stats they picked up from the local sports radio windbags. I was unaware "ERA vs. Teams With Winning Records" is criteria for the Cy Young award. You were 'reminded' as if you knew this in the first place - do you keep this stuff in a spreadsheet on your computer?  sarcastic 

The award could have easily gone to either Sabathia or Beckett. Looking at the unmanipulated stats, both are pretty much even.

No, I was couching my response in the form of what I was quoting. We can't be sure that Allstarflyer knew the Beckett had better run support than CC either.

Quoting WellHung (Reply 5):

No, but Quality Starts is a criterion. And I would argue that ERA vs. winning teams is far more significant than quality starts against teams like Kansas City, Tampa Bay, etc.

I agree, and I think Sabathia is deserving of the award. As you state, they were pretty much even. Then how come the voting was so lopsided in favor of Sabathia?

Took a team with 7 first or second starters to the National League Championship series with no one having a career season. Now to see what he can do with the D-Backs next season or will it just be a one season fluke.

Add John Lackey and Fausto Carmona to that list as well. I didn't think Fausto would get it, not in his first full year in the bigs (almost full year, that is), but I could have lived with either of those four getting the award. You can split hairs between C.C. and Beckett, they both had outstanding years.

And kudo's to Eric Wedge for winning the A.L. Manager of the Year. I'm not the biggest Wedge fan in the world, and thinks he doesn't a great job with the pitching staff, but he helps keep the Indians on an even keel. He definitely deserved it.

Jake Peavy for the national league Cy Young was a no-brainer, the guy was on fire all season.
