Felix Hernandez Will Win His Second Cy Young
The King is in a league by himself among AL pitchers. Chris Sale is the other pitcher who put up numbers anywhere close to Felix. Hernandez lead the AL in ERA and WHIP and broke the MLB record for most consecutive starts with 7+ innings and 2 or fewer runs. And next year he will have an even more impressive record to go along with his ERA, WHIP and strikeout numbers as the M’s will be a much better team.
