On the day after the regular season ended the ink-stained scribes here at Sports Blog Nation voted BBWA-style -- one vote per team-city (more or less), only voting in your league, etc. -- for the major awards.
Here are the winners of the SB Nation Cy Young Awards:
American League: Johan Santana
National League: Brandon Webb
Here are the ballot breakdowns, starting with the American League:
Basically, you vote Santana-Halladay this season 1-2 and then throw some random guy there for #3. I actually think that Halladay won't do this well in the "real" balloting, but we'll see.
For the curious, Royals Review voted Santana-Halladay-Wang.
I don't think I have ever seen Brandon Webb pitch. Webb's definitely in the category of "Really Elite Players that 95% of America has never heard of". Call it the Vernon Wells Hall or Fame. Trevor Hoffman seems to be getting way too much love here.
