R.A. Dickey Wins Cy Young

Even as his lowly ball club crumbled around him, New York Mets surprise ace R.A. Dickey remained a pillar of consistency. Today, Dickey was rewarded for his amazing season, being named the 2012 NL Cy Young award winner.

Dickey finished the season 20-6, accounting for nearly 30% of the team’s wins. His 2.73 ERA was second only to 2011 winner Clayton Kershaw and his 230 strikeouts led the league. On top of all that, Dickey achieved success in the most unconventional of ways: with a knuckleball. Dickey seemed to have control over the “novelty” pitch like few ever have, throwing back to back 1-hitters in the month of June.

In the American League, the award went to a more traditional pitcher. Flame throwing Tampa Bay Ray David Price took home the hardware, posting a ridiculous 20-5 record with a 2.56 ERA.  Price’s 4 point margin of victory over Justin Verlander is the closest vote total since 1969.
