Back to Back Cy Young Awards for Tim Lincecum!

November 19, 2009

Who gots the weed? I feel like I am coming down...

Isn’t that the grin of a guy who just got high?  Especially the small, beady eyes.  But, I am not going to hold that against him.  With the stress of playing for the Giants and not having good run support can really weigh on your mind.

But, this isn’t about the fact that Lincecum likes the ganja, it is about the fact that he repeated.  Puff, puff, pass….

Sorry for the distraction.  The repeating thing is the Cy Young Award.  If they were willing to give it to his AL counterpart who only won 16 games, then it started to look good for Lincecum, and the results are now in.

NEW YORK — Giants ace Tim Lincecum has won the NL Cy Young Award, becoming the first repeat winner in the major leagues since Randy Johnson was voted the prize four straight times from 1999-2002.

Lincecum led the NL with 261 strikeouts and tied for the league lead with four complete games and two shutouts.

Only 10 points separated the top three in one of the closest ballots in the award’s history.

Lincecum received 11 first-place votes, 12 seconds and nine thirds for 100 points in balloting released Thursday by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter was next with 94 points and teammate Adam Wainwright finished third with 90 despite getting the most first-place votes with 12.
