Baseball: I Was Happy, Now I'm Pissed.

Yesterday's announcement of Dustin Pedroia winning the American League Rookie of the Year was totally awesome, especially considering the vote of the Baseball Writers of America takes place before the playoffs begin. He deserved the honor even more so after.

Today's announcement of C.C. Sabathia winning the American League Cy Young Award upset me. The Indians pitcher was neck and neck with Josh Beckett most the year yet the final vote, which also took place before the playoffs, apparently was 119 points to 86. Maybe what happens in the playoffs should be considered. Beckett was far and away the better pitcher during October. Hell, his own teammate, Fausto Carmona, pitched slightly better and he ended up fourth in the voting. Even if Beckett still didn't win, the vote should have been much closer than it was. Once again, Boston doesn't get the respect it deserves. Simple as that.

On a completely unrelated topic, I found a new internet radio station specializing in Classic and Modern Rock. It just played "Ironic" by Alanis Morrisette. The song isn't terrible despite the fact none of her examples are actually examples of irony but I don't really consider the song "Rock." I would call it "Pop." Just thought I'd throw that out there...

Now I have "Ironic" in my head. I don't think I've heard it in years.
"It's like RAAAAIIIN on your wedding day". UGH. ;)
