Chien-Ming whaa?

As Baseball Musings mentioned, reporter Tom Singer seems a little surprised that Chien-Ming Wang really wasn’t in the mix in the Cy Young competition.  His article’s (written yesterday before vote result was announced) sub-headline read Competition appears to be between Beckett and Sabathia

Like it wasn’t obvious.

Singer goes on to say:

because Beckett and Wang were the respective leaders of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Their season-long excellence on the road to 20 wins — a destination only Beckett reached — figured to be hard to ignore.

Then another undisputed staff ace, the Indians’ C.C. Sabathia, drove a wedge into that battle, emerging by the end of the season as Beckett’s main challenger.

Wang didn’t receive a single vote.
