Greinke Wins AL Cy Young Award

Unsurprisingly, and certainly not undeservedly, Royals' righthander Zack Greinke was named the American League Cy Young Award winner today. Greinke was the clear favorite for the award, though you could have certainly made cases for some other AL hurlers. Do any of MLBTR's readers disagree with the selection?

Greinke's 2009 season wasn't just good, it was off-the-charts good. He posted a 2.16 ERA in 229.1 innings, striking out 242 batters and walking just 51 in the process. If you're a believer in WAR, Greinke's total of 9.4 was by far the most in baseball this year, and the most by a pitcher since Randy Johnson put up 9.9 WAR back in 2004.
