Holy shit, the BBWAA is coming around

Today they announced that Felix Hernandez won the AL Cy Young AND he got 21/28 first place votes. Wowzers.

I love to give the BBWAA crap, but this has been one of the better award seasons in a long time, so I will give them props for coming around. More and more they are starting to say goodbye to the truly horrible stats, like W/L record, which I’ll take. Sure, we won’t see them using WAR anytime soon, but slowly they are starting to reach the middle ground between19th century stats and Sabermetrics.

Just a few years ago Bartolo Colon embarrassingly won the Cy Young because he had 21 wins, while Johan Santana had 16 wins. Well, Felix Hernandez had 13 wins and beat out CC Sabathia who had 21 wins.

Maybe we should change this blog’s byline.
