Detroit’s Max Scherzer won the 2013 AL Cy Young Award and it wasn’t even close.

Scherzer received 28 of the 30 possible 1st-place votes, one 2nd-place vote and one 3rd-place vote. Hisashi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners finished third with six 2nd-place, 12 3rd-place, six 4th-place and a 5th-place vote.

I’m not going to sit here and argue with the decision that Scherzer should’ve won. If I had a vote this year it would have been for Scherzer. What I am sure many of you Mariners fans are upset about is the lack of support for Iwakuma.

I had read several articles leading up to the announcement that made a solid argument for ‘Kuma winning the thing. Let’s break it down and look at some of the numbers.
