The voting is in, and the balloonish Bartolo Colon somehow beats out the inarguably superior Mariano Rivera for the Cy Young. First Jeter wins back-to-back GGs, then they give a guy the same award who can’t catch something that doesn’t even spin, and now this. What the heck is the world coming to? Next thing we know Theo Epstein will be walking away from the Red Sox front off-, er, scratch that. Someone just make sure to tell Bart that the shiny outside doesn’t conceal a soft, chocolate inside.
(as an aside, at least my cynicism in the voters now seems justified, here)
