ph_282332Bad knee and all, CC Sabathia was among the finalists for the American League’s Oustanding Pitcher Award, but the award went to another AL East left-hander.

David Price won the award, voted on by the players association, ahead of Sabathia and Felix Hernandez.

Sabathia also in the running for the Clutch Performer of the Year Award, which went to Roy Halladay. This award is nothing like the Cy Young or MVP. It’s basically something for Pepsi to have its name attached to, and the entire voting is done by fans online.

Halladay won the award with 32 percent of the vote. Here are the full standings:

RHP Roy Halladay, Phillies — 32%
RHP Brian Wilson, Giants — 21%
1B Joey Votto, Reds — 15%
LHP CC Sabathia, Yankees — 13%
1B Miguel Cabrera, Tigers — 11%
RHP Rafael Soriano, Rays — 5%

The award is meant to recognize the player who consistently performed at his best when the game was on the line. The nominees were selected by a special editorial panel from MLB.com. Sabathia has won the award in the past. The past three winners: Alex Rodriguez (2007), Sabathia (2008) and Andre Ethier (2009).

    greeting from the old folks home. i was disappointed to hear that your application for residency here was denied because of your insistence on moving your blunderbuss collection in with you.

    too bad because i could have used the time to have taught you how how to hit a golf ball and actually find it to hit it again.

    LMAO. I have no trouble finding them after I hit them. I either look right behind me or in the nearest car windshield.. As far as the old folks home, they’ll never let me in. I haven’t started falling asleep in my cereal bowl yet. That’s a prerequisite for getting in.

    Can’t argue with Price……….

    they have racquetball courts here at the old folks home.

    that might be better for you than golf because it’s hard to lose the ball after you hit it in a closed room.

    the only downside i can see is you might have trouble getting racquetball partners because who in their right mind would go into a big white room with you that only had one way out .

    LMAO. I’m not that far gone. If you don’t stop calling me a psycho, I’m gonna have to whacked.

    Randy, it always seemed that the star players in school were the guys that were the star pitchers and played shortstop on days they didn’t start.

    Some of the great hitting pitchers that come to mind are Red Ruffing, Bob Gibson, Bob Lemon(former 3rd baseman), Don Newcomb (as mentioned), Mel Stottlemyre, Warren Spahn, Wes Farrell (much better hitter than HOF catching brother Rick), Don Drysdale, Earl Wilson and Fergie Jenkins. Catfish Hunter was such a good hitter that the old miser, Charlie Finley actually had a $5,000 bonus added to his contract as a hitter

  7. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    I forgot about some guy named Ruth. Two other guys that went from pitchers to hitters were Lefty “ODoul, who was a Yankee pitcher before hurting his arm, and former Ruth team mate and 30 game winner one year, Smokey Joe Wood.

  8. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Lefty ***O’Doul***

    The silver lining :

    C.B. didn’t win .

    Brian Wilson and Rafael Soriano finished higher than Mo?

  11. Robin October 31st, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    I wonder how many people voted in the players poll? I mean who many returned the ballots – 20%, 50%, 90%, etc.

    it was a fans poll organized by Pepsi. Who knew the contest even existed.

    who would you say are the better athletes , pitchers or position players ?

    most people would say position players, but wasn’t guidry the fastest yankee when he played? i think he might have had a footrace with mickey rivers and won. mariano rivera is an amazing athlete. i think buccholz on the red sox can run with ellsbury ( of course when the police are on his he’s he’s even faster).

  14. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Randy, I’d be hard pressed to figure that out. Other than catchers, pitchers expend more energy than any other players. I’d think that shortstops are probably the most athletic because they may be able to adapt to other positions easier. They always said that Guidry was the best center fielder on that team, much like they say the same about Rivera now. Guidry had near blazing speed and could hit when he came out of Louisiana.

    Mariano is still the best pure athlete on the team. He’s gets off the mound as quick as a cat for coverage and chases down flyballs during BP in right center field. Doesn’t slack off or miss a beat during pre-game stretching drills with Dana Cavalea.

    BloggingBombers Cliff Lee: “I don’t like shaving.” Bad sign for Yankees? #hotstove

    ———-

    I hate to shave as well. Absolutely hate it.

    But I’d learn very quickly to like it if someone wanted to hand me a check for $100M+ as the Yanks are certainly prepared to do.

    Tough call. We can walk farther, but they can swim farther. Of course, they need extra oxygen. We also have prettier parachutes.

  19. MaineYankee October 31st, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Of course it’s navy seals.

    green berets just sit around drink beer and make typo’s on the computer.

  20. MaineYankee October 31st, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    I hope you’re keeping track of the % of post you’re making. :lol:

    i figured that since you guys had to wear those cute little hats that you had to be tougher to pull that off.

    well, i’m done trying to stir up trouble for today.

    time to watch a netflix movie. recently watched “The Girl Who Played with Fire” a swedish film.
    pretty good.

  23. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Not only that, but, only sissies drink beer. Green Berets swill beer.

    I was never like that before I came on this blog. :lol:

  25. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    Yeah, this place does tend to change people after a month or so. Never for the better, either.

    maine yankee-

    don’t you have some leaves you have to rake?

    … and watch out for those moose droppings.

  27. MaineYankee October 31st, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Got to run. Quick trip up to randy’s old stomping ground.

  28. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    The backyard outhouse? Don’t forget the catalogue.

  29. Disco October 31st, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    LOL @ at a RP in second place.

    People/fans are dumb.

    I see we’re having a reunion today.

    Which of you was the first to draw blood ?

  31. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    MTU, those two guys are pushovers. It was no contest.

    Fortunately, some things never change.

  33. GreenBeret7 October 31st, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    I guess that I’m going to have to give them some special tutoring. I figured that at their ages, they’d be better….more of a challenge than they are.

  34. MTU October 31st, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    GB-

    Yeah. It looks like you’ve got your work cut out for you.

    Maine always seems to be spending all his free time practicing milking his cows.

    Randy spends a lot of time counting his money.

    I’m always hiking.

    So there is really no one for you sharpen you skills on.

    Trolls aren’t much sport for you either.

    It’s quite a predicament.

    Navy Seals – The best trained, fiercest fighting men in the USA military- Period.

    As for the Army, the Rangers are heads above the Green Beret.

  36. BoJo October 31st, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    Other pitchers turned hitters….Olerud, Winfield, Musial, Ankiel,
