The Detroit Tigers’ Max Scherzer won his first American League Cy Young Award, while the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw easily grabbed his second NL Cy Young in three years as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced winners this evening.
Scherzer, the AL starter in the All-Star Game, went 21-3, leading the majors in wins and his league in WHIP while striking out a career high 240 batters and helping Detroit to its third straight AL Central title. He received 28 of the 30 first-place votes. Fellow Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, the AL ERA leader, and White Sox lefty Chris Sale split the other two first place votes. Scherzer finished with 203 points overall, more than double the total of runner-up Yu Darvish of the Rangers, who had 93.
Kershaw was chosen first on 29 of the 30 ballots cast. The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright got the other first-place vote and finished second overall. The Marlins’ Jose Fernandez — who won the NL Rookie of the Year award on Monday — wa...

There's something very special about watching a player put everything together in an unbelievable season like Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer did this year.
Scherzer, 29, always possessed incredible talent, a strong work ethic and a keen intellect.
In 2013, he combined all of that for a dominating 21-3 record, 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and for the sabermetric crowd, a 6.7 WAR...
Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer was named the AL CY Young winner today. He won in a landslide, collecting 28 of the 30 first place votes. Scherzer went 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA, both career bests. Sure, we can have the debate about how much won-loss record measures a pitcher’s ability. It doesn’t mean anything. You could argue with me, but you’d be wrong. Nevertheless, Scherzer...
It looks like the Detroit Tigers are going to borrow a page from the New York Mets game plan and attempt to trade their Cy Young winning pitcher, Max Scherzer. Yes, I am fully aware that Scherzer has yet to actually win the Cy Young, but let's not try to kid ourselves here. He went 21-3, posted a 2.90 ERA, a 2.74 FIP and struck out a rather absurd 10.08 hitters per nine innings...

On the day Max Scherzer officially won the AL Cy Young award for his amazing 2013 season, he was prepared for the questions about 2014. With rumors building about the possibility of the Tigers trading Scherzer with a year left on his contract and potential free-agent stardom to follow, he didn’t want to take away from his celebration.
“The business side will take care of itself...
Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer just seems to be a real guy's guy. He runs the clubhouse's fantasy football league, he wears really cool custom goggles during champagne celebrations, and he can throw a mean slider. What's not to like about him? I guess the only that separates him from the rest of us is that he just so happens to be the best pitcher in the American League...
