Roy Halladay wins the 2010 NL Cy Young Award

As expected, in a unanimous decision, Roy Halladay has won the 2010 NL Cy Young Award. Halladay was the obvious choice in the NL as he led the league in wins (21), complete games (9), shutouts (4), innings pitched (250) and also had the best strikeout to walk ratio. Add a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter to those statistics and you clearly have the best pitcher in the game.

Congratulations to Roy Halladay on a season for the ages. While I'm sure he would gladly give back all of the individual accolades for a World Series ring, if it wasn't for what Halladay was able to accomplish, the Phillies wouldn't have had such a successful regular season. Rarely does a superstar player acquired in the offseason live up to all of the hype that surrounds him but that's exactly what Roy Halladay did in the 2010 season. Just think, we get to watch this guy for at least three more years.
