  • Bartolo Colon wins AL Cy Young

    Linky
    QUOTE
    Los Angeles Angels pitcher Bartolo Colon won the AL Cy Young on Tuesday.

    The right-hander from the Dominican Republic was 21-7 with a 3.48 ERA during the regular season.

    He beat out Mariano Rivera and last year's runaway winner Johan Santana.

    Colon left his start against the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the ALDS of the playoffs after only 23 pitches because of inflammation in his right shoulder.

    He had been bothered by tightness in his back since early September and did not play in the ALCS against the eventual champion Chicago White Sox.[/b][/quote]

          Let me put this through the pundit sound bite generator:

          This doesn't bode well for Carpenter.

          Willis has this sewn up.

            I disagree. I dont think anything can be garnered from this award as to what will happen in the NL Cy Young. Colon was the only AL pitcher to win 20+. Second closest was only 18 and neither of them could touch Colon in strikeouts. And neither took a lead in other categories like BAA, OBP, or OPS.

            The AL race was more of a Starter vs Reliever debate between Colon and Rivera.
