San Francisco Giant pitching Phenom Tim Lincecum won the National League Cy Young award. He joins Mike McCormick who won the award back in 1967, the first year the award was given in both leagues. An interesting fact is that the Giants did not go to the post season in either instance. In fact only Steve Carlton, of the Philadelphia Phillies has won the Cy Young pitching for a worst team Lincecum, attended Liberty High School in Renton, his Father Chris Lincecum, often comes into the UPS Store in Bellevue where I work.
