Roy Halladay: Unanimous Choice for NL Cy Young Award
Roy Halladay won the National League Cy Young award today, receiving all 32 first-place votes and becoming the fifth pitcher to win the award in both the American and National leagues.
Halladay pitched a perfect game against the Florida Marlins this summer and then, in his first postseason start of his career, pitched a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds. His 21 wins led the National League. He also led the league in innings pitched, shutouts thrown and complete games.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright finished second and was followed by Colorado pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Tim Lincecum, who had won the past two NL Cy Youngs, finished 11th in the voting.
Halladay was the only choice for this award and his stats prove that. He was dominant this year and was one of the reasons the Phillies were able to hang around in the playoff hunt while they were going through a long period of injuries.
