Robbie Ray Wins AL Cy Young

Robbie Ray Wins AL Cy Young

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports Robbie Ray was named the winner of the 2021 American League Cy Young this afternoon. Unlike Ray’s pants, the vote wasn’t particularly tight, with the Blue Jays ace receiving 29 of 30 first place votes. Gerrit Cole of the Yankees came second and received the lone dissenting vote, while Chicago’s Lance Lynn rounded out the podium.

I can get up slowly, get the morning things done and then look at the site. Anyway, the Blue Jays have signed Jose Berrios to a seven-year contract extension. Berrios came to us at the trade deadline for Austin Martin and Simeon Woods Richardson. It seemed like a high price for a guy who would be a free agent after the 2022 season. Well, now he won’t be a free agent....

Marcus Semien Wins AL Gold Glove

Marcus Semien Wins AL Gold Glove

And he is a ha | Matt Blewett-USA TODAY Sports Marcus Semien was announced as the winner of the AL Gold Glove at second base tonight. It is well deserved. Marcus led the AL second basemen in UZR/150 at 6.6. Whit Merrifield was second at 5.0. And, since we got to see him play every day, we know the eye test matches his numbers. He was great fun to watch. The last Blue Jays player to win a Glove Gold was Vernon Wells who won three in a row from 2004 to 2006. Lourdes Gurriel and Jose Berrios weren’t winners, Andrew Benintendi (Royals) won in left and Dallas Keuchel...
