On November 6th the writers of the SB Nation announced their choice for the NL Cy Young award winner, unanimously voting for San Diego Padres pitcher Jake Peavy as the National League's top pitcher.
Yesterday the Baseball Writers of America did the same, and did so unanimously as well, awarding the Padres right-handed starter Jake Peavy the actual NL Cy Young award. (As opposed to the SBN version).
The writers of the SB Nation voted for Brandon Webb(AZ) and Brad Penny(LAD) as the second and third place finishers, once again matching the voting of the Baseball Writers of America, as the SB Nation's baseball writers are now 4 for 4 in predicting, with their votes, the winners of 2007's Major League Baseball awards.
Peavy's Cy Young winning numbers...(quoting myself from 11/6/07):
"...In 2007, Peavy, the Padres 6'1'', 180 lb ace, went (19-6) in 34 starts, striking out 240, while walking only 68 in 223.1 innings with a 2.54 ERA overall, leading his team to within 1.5 games of the NL West crown."
Up next in the MLB Awards Season for the 4 for 4 SBN Voting Writers...The NL and AL MVP Awards...Can David Wright take home a MVP Award with his Gold Glove? or Will Matt Holliday lift the hardware? Is anyone going to vote for anyone other than the soon-to-be-$275 Million-dollar Yankee Alex "Regular Season" Rodriguez as AL MVP? We shall see...
