The BBWAA announced the American League Cy Young Award today, and unsurprisingly Felix Hernandez won. It might not have been Roy Halladay’s unanimous selection, but it was still a landslide. There will be a lot of discussion about what this means for how writers view the game, but I’m not sure that’s the most important point here. We run down the ballot, including CC’s spot in third.
The Yankees made a pair of minor moves today. They signed a Dominican prospect, and they traded Juan Miranda for Scottie Allen. It might sound tough to get geeked out about these, but it appears as though the Yanks made two solid, if unspectacular, moves. Allen’s no front line starter, but he could be useful in a number of ways. Oh, and he’s only 19.
