Congratulations to Félix Hernández, 2010’s Cy Young Award Laureate!

Hernandez, the Seattle Mariners’ right-handed pitcher who earned only 13 victories last season, won the American League Cy Young Award in a landslide.

He took 21 of 28 first-place votes, beating Tampa Bay’s David Price, who had four first-place votes, and the Yankees’ C. C. Sabathia, who had three.

“I didn’t have the wins, but you look over all the numbers and you say, ‘Wow,’ ” Hernandez said.

“I’m so happy. My first reaction was crying.”
