Long Live The King…
Coming into this past baseball season, the two most coveted pitchers I wanted for my fantasy baseball team were Roy Halladay and Felix Hernandez. I got King Felix, though it looks like it wouldn’t have really even mattered one way or the other!
Congrats to Hernandez for winning the 2010 AL Cy Young Award. This year will likely go down as the turning point in the battle of the “stat heads” (Felix had only 13 wins on a horrible team) vs. the traditionalists (who likely voted for David Price or CC Sabathia). Here’s the way I look at it, though:
Day in and day out, who was the most dominant pitcher in the AL? Though Price comes close, I’ll take King Felix right now.
