    October 22, 2010:
    BBA Boston Chapter selects “King Felix”
    their Walter Johnson Award Selection

    Posted by Christine E. at 9:21 am in Baseball,BBA Comments (6)

    The penultimate BBA Award for the 2010 postseason, the Walter Johnson Award, is given to the best pitcher in each league, and was an easy choice for the Boston Chapter, Seattle’s ace, Hernandez garnered 4 out of the 5 1st place votes among those voting for a total of 24 points.

    Tampa Bay’s Ace, David Price was a distant 2nd, with (2) 2nd place and (2) 3rd place votes, totaling 14 points.

    The span between 2 and 3 was also large, with Boston’s Clay Buchholz, and Yankee CC Sabathia tying for the 3rd place, but the tie was broken with CC’s sole 1st place vote (He received a 4th and 5th place vote as well.) Buchholz received a 2nd, 3rd and 5th place vote)

    Rounding out the Top 5 was Boston’s Jon Lester with 6 points, comprised of a 3rd, 4th and 5th place vote…

    The complete voting is below:

    24 points Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners

    14 points David Price, Tampa Bay Rays

    8 points CC Sabathia, New York Yankees

    8 points Clay Buchholz, Boston Red Sox

    6 points John Lester, Boston Red Sox

    4 points Rafael Soriano, Tampa Bay Rays

    1 point Jered Weaver, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    The top 2 were in line with how I personally voted, but I didn’t think Clay Buchholz was a better pitcher this year that Jon Lester, and other pitchers in the AL, and Sabathia got a last place vote from me–I don’t put a huge amount of stock in win-loss record, and I while I think he is a good pitcher–I think his team makes him seem better than he is…

    Coming up: The Boston Chapter selections will conclude with Stan Musial Award (MVP) next week, and we will hear from the collective BBA as to how they voted as well…
