Biggest Cy Young Snubs of All Time - Pitcher List

In 2005, the National League award went to Chris Carpenter by 20 vote points over Dontrelle Willis. Dontrelle won more games, had a lower ERA, and a higher WAR. Carpenter did strike out 43 more batters, which must have earned him the 19 first-place votes to Willis’ 11 to push him over the finish line.

Continuing the 2005 trend, the AL had its own snubbery as the winner was Bartolo Colón who won 21 games that year but was second-to-last among vote-getters in ERA and likely wasn’t even the most deserving starter as Johan Santana nearly doubled his WAR with a lower ERA and WHIP with 238 strikeouts to Bartolo’s 157. Mariano Rivera probably had a better case than Colón, too, but Santana should’ve walked away with the hardware.
