CY Young To Verlander Honorable Mention To Sabathia, Rivera & Robertson

Congratulations to Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander for his historic 2011 season. Verlander won the CY Young Award by a landslide, just as expected and well-deserved I may add.

Verlander went 24-5 in the regular season, posting a 2.40 ERA, 250 strikeouts and pitched 251 innings.

In all honesty, the rest of the CY Young voting is really irrelevant this season because Verlander’s performance was that superior, as he unanimously won across the voting across board. Still, even in a rare circumstance it is nice to acknowledge the other top pitchers around the American League for their hard work too, which included three Yankee arms.

Congratulations to all the nominees!!
