Reader That Guy makes a comment that will cause Cy Young voters to blow a gasket:

It’s too bad niether Price nor Sabathia’s preformance of eight-inning shutout ball count towards the Cy Young race, because neither got a decision. They both pitched well, but neither of them knew how to win last night.

Hey, if you’re going to hold awesome, no-win performances against Felix Hernandez . . .
