“This is the first of many. Now I have to work even harder because I’m the best pitcher in the American League.”
– Felix Hernandez, apparently believing that the Cy Young Award is taken away from its current holder head-to-head style, as though this were professional wrestling.
I kid King Felix. He was quite emotional and genuine in his post-award interview, the highlights of which you can read in the AP writeup. Like I said in the last post, I really dislike the sportsman’s cliches. Kudos to Hernandez for saying what he felt rather than offering us the obligatory “I feel honored to have been considered” claptrap.
