Mets’ Jacob deGrom gets Cy with record-low wins; Blake Snell takes A.L.

Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets has easily won the National League Cy Young Award, and Blake Snell of the Tampa Bay Rays has edged out two past winners for the American League prize. DeGrom won just 10 games, the fewest ever by a Cy Young-winning starter. He got 29 of 30 first-place votes, with Washington’s Max Scherzer getting the other. Snell narrowly beat out Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber for his first Cy Young after leading the majors with 21 victories.

Cubs’ Jake Arrieta wins N.L. Cy Young Award

Kershaw had the other three firsts and 101 points.

Grip on Sports: Cy Young award takes left turn

Thursday: Just when you think you have baseball’s postseason award voters figured out, the target moves again. As that longtime Red Sox fan Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. The hobgoblins took down Felix Hernandez this time. Or was it the little minds? I’m not sure.

Hernandez earns American League’s Cy Young Award

NEW YORK – For once, Felix Hernandez got all the support he needed for a big win. The Seattle ace earned the American League Cy Young Award on Thursday despite a modest 13-12 record. His major league-leading 2.27 ERA and superior stats put him far ahead of Tampa Bay’s David Price and the New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia and their impressive win-loss numbers.

Felix picks up 13th win but will it be enough to win award?

ARLINGTON, Texas – Felix Hernandez vows this wasn’t the end of his brilliant run at a Cy Young Award. Moments after holding the Texas Rangers to one run over eight innings in a 3-1 win Tuesday night, Hernandez said he would be back out there again for Sunday’s season finale against Oakland. His team wants to limit his innings totals and is thinking about shutting him down now, but Hernandez was having nothing to do with that talk.

Blanchette: Hernandez deserves Cy support

The Seattle Mariners have crammed 100 pounds of embarrassment – or nearly – into the 10-pound bag of the 2010 season, but one more crushing indignity awaits these pitiable slappies and the brain trust of general manager Jack Zduriencik, CEO Howard Lincoln and team barnacle Chuck Armstrong. Felix Hernandez will win the American League Cy Young Award, or else he won’t.
