Sigh, Felix finishes second in Cy race

The Mariners’ Felix Hernandez was the runner-up to Zack Greinke in the Cy Young Award race, receiving 80 points and two first-place votes.  The Tigers’ Justin Verlander picked up the other first-place vote.  The Yankees’ CC Sabathia and the Blue Jays’ Roy Halladay also picked up votes.

The 26-year old Greinke was named first on 25 ballots and second on three ballots of the 28 total ballots cast by two writers in each American League city.  He received a total of 134 points, based on the 5-3-1 tabulations system for first, second and third-place votes.
