Default David Price Wins AL Cy Young Award

BBWAA.com: Official site of the Baseball Writers' Assn. of America.

Quote:
Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price won the 2012 American League Cy Young Award in a close call over the 2011 winner, Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander, in one of the tightest races in the history of the AL balloting. Results were announced on the MLB Network.

Price (20-5, 2.56 ERA) was named first on 14 of the 28 ballots cast by two writers in each league city, second on 13 ballots and third on one to score 153 points, based on a tabulation system that rewards seven points for first place, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth. Verlander (17-8, 2.64 ERA) received 13 first-place votes, 13 seconds and two thirds for 149 points. The other first-place votes went to Rays closer Fernando Rodney (2-2, 0.60 ERA, 48 SV), who finished fifth overall among the nine pitchers who gained mention.

The voting:
1. David Price 153 points
2. Justin Verlander 149 points
3. Jered Weaver
4. Felix Hernandez
5. Fernando Rodney
6. Chris Sale
7. Jim Johnson
8. Matt Harrison
9. Yu Darvish
---
Congrats to the 2nd best pitcher in the AL this year.

Price would not have won that many games if it wasn't for Rodney.

For the 2012 season the right pitcher got the Cy Young award. As much as I like Verlander (ODU), Price deserved the award.
