Doc Halladay has won the 2010 NL Cy Young Award, receiving all 32 first place votes.

The BBWAA have just announced that Roy Halladay was voted the National League Cy Young Award, becoming the fifth pitcher to win the award as a pitcher in both league, as he had won the award in 2003 while pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays, joining Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry, future Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez, future Hall of Famer Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens.

Roy received all 32 first-place votes for a total of 224 points, beating out Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals, who had received 28 second-place votes, for a total of 122 votes, and Ubaldo Jiminez, who ended third with 90 votes, including 4 second-place votes.

Roy won the votes by going 21-10 as he pitched in 33 games, all starts, as he finished first, second or third in several categories, including finishing first with the most wins in the NL (21), most complete games (9), shutouts (4) and innings pitched (250 2/3), while he finished second in strikeouts (219), behind Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants, and third in ERA (2.44), behind Josh Johnson of the Florida Marlins and Wainwright. He also pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB History as he threw a no-no against the Marlins on May 29, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, as he pitched the Phils to a 1-0 win.

Halladay became the fourth Phil to win the award, following four-time winner Hall of Famer Steve Carlton (1972, 1977, 1980, 1982), John Denny (1983), and Steve Bedrosian (1987).

Congratulations, Doc. You deserve this win.

    I honestly think Roy Halladay did everything short of going out on Broad Street and giving away tickets this year for the Phillies.
    It was the best pre-2010 MLB season pick-up by anyone in a long, long time.
    His domination was felt early in the year with his No-No and his consistency on the mound. I would have been more in shock if someone else copped a First Place vote.
    But that is what the Phillies wished for when they got Halladay. He gave the the needed “W’s” to again post-up in the postseason.
    Believe me, if he could play a field position ( besides his cameo appearance) he would of done anything to get this team another ring.

    (Uhm, that was the Vice Roy (Oswalt) that made the outfield cameo)
    Yeah, he did almost everything the Phils wanted this year. If only the bats could’ve given him the ring. Hopefully junior can find some way to fix that during the off-season, besides telling Unca Charlie to let Gross do his job as the hitting coach.
