Today's the birthday of Cy Young,
For his pitching a host of hosannas are sung.
He threw 3 no-hitters and is so adored
That HIS name is on the best-pitcher award.
"One of the fellows called me Cyclone, but finally shortened it to 'Cy' and its been that ever since."
The last White Sox pitcher to win the Cy Young Award was Jack McDowell in 1993. The last Cub Greg Maddox in 1992. The Sox have won a total of 3, the Cubs 4. Opening day is Monday. Spring! Hopes eternal!
