Justin Verlander unanimously wins AL Cy Young award

As everyone expected, Justin Verlander won the AL Cy Young Award today. No arguments here from this Yankees fan. Verlander had a season for the ages, going 24-5 with a nice low 2.40 ERA. You really can’t do much better than that pitching in the American League. Some could say he won the award based on his impeccable record and statistics, or others could argue that it’s because his Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees in the ALDS. I guess some mysteries will remain unsolved.
