Glad to see him get recognized for a terrific year, in spite of being on a mediocre team. First Dodgers pitcher to win the award since Eric Gagne in '03, and the first starter to win it since Orel Hershiser in 1988. I'm a little surprised Ian Kennedy finished fourth in the voting though, I thought he would have a little more support from the voters.

Congrats to Kershaw, he absolutely deserved it.

I find it really hard to believe though that a pitcher who wins the triple crown (W's/K's/ERA) does not win the CY unanimously.
