AL MVP

22 Nov

Justin Verlander

Don Newcombe, Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Denny McLain, Vida Blue, Rollie Fingers, Willie Hernandez, Roger Clemens, Dennis Eckersley are all recognized not only as great pitchers but as the only 10 pitchers in MLB history to win both the MVP and Cy Young in the same season.

Well…You can add an 11th member.

Justin Verlander.

In an era where it is uncommon for a pitcher to even be considered realistically for the MVP.  Verlander’s feat is far more impressive.

Verlander has now won the triple crown, Cy Young and MVP awards caping one of the best pitching seasons in recent history with a bang.

Here are his numbers from this past season.

24-5, 2.40 E.R.A, 250 SO
