Your American League Cy Young Award Winner.
Good story, better pitcher. Congrats to Zach Greinke.

Wow, not even one vote for Kei Igawa. He definitely had a good year in Scranton. There's always next year for the Kei man. So sad, so sad....
Congrats to Zack, and for bouncing back. Though I suspect he wouldn't do well in the bright lights of NY.
Are those pictures from the SI column? I may be the only human being on earth who didn't think Greinke came off well at all in that story. He really seems like a bit of an ass, to be honest.
That said, he deserved the award unanimously.
I doubt that he's a terribly bright and/or interesting guy. Yeah, those pictures are from SI, I should have credited them. My bad. Nice shots.
The thing that always bothered me is that some teammate came up to him and asked if he'd play in a charity golf outing, and Grienke responds with something like "No, why the hell would I do that?" The author, who I think was Joe Pos, found it hilarious, I thought he looked like a dick.
 Yeah but wasn't that when he was going through the whole social anxiety thing? It's a dick move, but he was definitely having some issues at the time.
  I actually thought it was Posnaski who looked like a dick. But that may be because I am so strongly predisposed to think he's a dick under all circumstances.
 I thought he was suggesting that it happened this year during the writing of the article.
