MLB 2010 Cy Young Awards

AL Cy Young Award

Winner: Felix Hernandez

Reason: 1st in IP, 2nd in K, 2nd in WHIP, 1st in ERA

Felix had 35 more K’s than Sabathia, and 44 more than Price. His WHIP was .13 lower than both Sabathia and Price, and his ERA was 2.27 compared to 2.72 for Price and 3.18 for Sabathia. So I think that all of these outweigh him having 8 less wins than Sabathia and 6 less wins than Price.

NL Cy Young Award

Winner: Roy Halladay
Reason: 1st in Wins, 1st in IP. 2nd in K, 3rd in ERA, 2nd in WHIP

Slightly beats out Adam Wainwright. Halladay had 1 more win, 6 more K’s, 20 more innings, and a WHIP that was .01 better. Halladay’s ERA was .02 points worse than Wainwrights. Plus Halladay’s team is in the playoffs.
