Cy Young: The Hallmark of Hurlers

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!

  • As they say, Cy Young never won the Cy Young, but Tommy John had Tommy John surgery.

  • Yes! 60's predicted for Sox home opening day Monday. Play ball!

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    But you predicted snow for opening day. While it won't be Sox opening day, did you mean Cubs?

  • In reply to jack:

    Oh, Jack! I didn't say that. I just said, snow is not unheard of. But you know whatever the weather, it's glorious on Opening Day.

    Maybe this is the year we'll be talking baseball weather in October....

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    It may be 70 degrees, but around here only the Tigers and maybe Indians will be concerned.
