Giants Starter Tim Lincecum Wins NL Cy Young
Amazingly, the BBWAA did its job and handed Tim Lincecum the NL Cy Young Award. Lincecum is only the second Giants pitcher to win the award, the other being Mike McCormick in 1967. There was a decent case for Brandon Webb, but Lincecum's 265 strikeouts blew past Webb's 183, despite a slight deficit in wins (18 for Lincecum versus Webb's 22); it says something that Lincecum was, by himself, responsible for 25% of his team's 72 wins. Congratulations!
