CY YOUNG FOR THE DOCTOR
It’s official, Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies has been awarded the National League Cy Young award. He had a great regular season, going 21-10 with a 2.44 ERA and 219 strikeouts. He threw a perfect game and a no-hitter in the same season. What makes it more remarkable is that he’s doing it at the age of 33. Not old but definitely on the back 9 of his career. I know you’re not supposed to include the post season but if you did, I might lean a little towards that kid up in the ‘frisco Bay. Lincecum won the games when it counted (not to say that Halladay didn’t) and if it wasn’t for his pitching and out-dueling the immortal Cliff Lee, the Giants wouldn’t have one the Series. Hats off to Halladay, it’s too bad he didn’t get out of Toronto earlier.
