2011 AL Cy Young ballot of Detroit News' Tom Gage
Here's what his ballot looked like:
1. Justin Verlander, SP, Tigers — Slam dunk.
2. Jose Valverde, RP, Tigers — Wasn't afraid to put another Tiger second. In the American League, his 49-for-49 in saves was the second-best pitching accomplishment of the season.
3. Jered Weaver, SP, Angels — Excellent most of the way, but won only four games the last two months.
4. CC Sabathia, SP, Yankees — Just a tick down from Weaver.
5. Mariano Rivera, RP, Yankees — Toughest call, but had to go with 44 saves and a 1.91 ERA."Tweet Stumbleupon StumbleUpon
