2011 SB Nation Awards - AL Cy Young

 

Justin Verlander was elevated to demigod status this summer -- for no real reason -- and should easily waltz to the Cy Young Award. Did the SB Nation baseball scribes vote the same way? Results after the jump.

I was one of the two CC Sabathia voters. I voted Sabathia-Verlander-Haren-Wilson-McCarthy. Sabathia had a better FIP and xFIP and a higher WAR, while also not pitching against the Royals every week.
