Yesterday was another great day in sports. I’ve got a few topics to talk about.
1st Baseball- Yesterday the MLB announced the CY Young winners of the 2012 season. In the NL my man R.A. Dickey won the award. He got 27-32 first place votes. He really earned it. He was the first Knuckleballer to ever win the award. Now in the AL it was close. David Price edged Justin Verlander in the voting. It was the 2nd closest vote in CY Young History since it was a tie in 1969. Tonight is the Announcing of the MVP awards. The front runners for the AL are Miguel Cabrera and AL rookie of the year Mike Trout. For the NL the front runner is Buster Posey. Yesterday Torii Hunter signed a 2 year deal with the Tigers.
Now to football- Yesterday Big Ben Rothlisberger was ruled out with a dislocated rib and another injury. For you fantasy owners with him that’s really bad because with this injury he’ll be out for a long time maybe for the season. Pittsburgh QB Bryon Leftwitch will make his first start since 2009. Alex Smith will start against the Bears on Monday night after getting a councussion in last weeks tie vs the Rams. Michael Vick is out and Nick Foles will start as of now. Clay Matthews was ruled out for Sundays game vs the Lions.
