Peavey Wins NL Cy Young

When MLB announced on Tuesday, that Cleveland Indians starter CC Sabathia was the American League's Cy Young Award winner, former Indians pitcher and MLB Hall of Fame Bob Feller was asked for his thoughts. Feller said he was very impressed. Feller told the reporter that he had never in spite of all his accomplishments in the Big Leagues won a Cy Young Award. Feller then said "Cy Young never won a Cy Young award either."

Well Jake Peavey of the San Diego Padres has won a Cy Young award, MLB announced on Thursday. Not only did he win it, he was the unanimous choice by the BBWA winning all 32 first place votes. The last time that occurred was in 2002 as the Big Unit Randy Jonson got all 32 while pitching for Arizona. Peavey led the National League in wins with 19, strikeouts with with 240, and his 2.54 ERA was a league best as well. Peavey's Padres were eliminated in a one day playoff for the Wild Card spot by the Colorado Rockies. Arizona Diamonbacks starter Brandon Webb, finished second, L.A. Dodgers Brad Penny came in third, and Cincinnati's Aaron Harang finished fourth in the voting.
