King Felix Gets his Crown!

Despite the Seattle Mariner’s horrific 61-101 record (29 games behind the AL-West champion Texas Rangers) Felix Hernandez was awarded the AL Cy Young Award. Hernandez lead the American League with a 2.27 ERA in 249 2/3 innings pitched. Due to terrible run support, Felix was only able to obtain a 13-12 record, but was very impressive in those 13 wins finishing second in the AL with 232 strikeouts. The King received 21 of 28 first place votes, followed by Tampa Bay’s David Price with 4, and finally New York’s CC Sabathia with 3. I guess better luck next year fellas . . . FELIX IS KING!
