25-year old righty starting pitcher Tim Lincecum won his second consecutive Cy Young Award in a very close vote over Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals. Lincecum deserved the award as he started 32 games for the Giants in which he was 15-7 with a 2.48 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. He only allowed 168 hits in 225 1/3 innings last season while whiffing 261 batters showing just how dominating he was. Lincecum has now pitched in 90 games (89 starts) in his major league career and he is 40-17 with a 2.90 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. There is no reason to think that Lincecum can add more Cy Young Awards to his trophy case in the near future.
UPDATE: Tim Lincecum has also finished tied for 18th in the MVP Award voting in the N.L. He was tied with Shane Victorino of the Phillies.
