2010 SB Nation NL Cy Young Award: Roy Halladay Wins, Kershaw 9th

New, 877 comments

Roy Halladay adjusted to the National League just fine in 2010, and as a result he easily won the SB Nation National League Cy Young Award, capturing all 33 first place votes. The points were awarded on a 7-4-3-2-1 basis this year, the first year with expanded ballots including five players instead of three, just like the BBWAA. Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers received three fifth-place votes, finishing ninth overall. Here are the results:

  • My ballot:  Halladay, Jimenez, Wainwright, Johnson, Kershaw
  • Phil Gurnee's ballot: Halladay, Wainwright, Jimenez, Johnson, Kershaw

The real NL Cy Young Award, given out by the Baseball Writers Association of America, also went to Halladay, and also unanimously.
