Aaron Harang Gets a Vote

Eight, in fact, to come in a close fourth in the Cy Young voting. All my campaigning finally paid off. I’m sure the pitching helped too.

2007 NL Cy Young Award Voting

Pitcher, Club 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Jake Peavy, SD 32     160
Brandon Webb, ARI   31 1 94
Brad Penny, LAD     14 14
Aaron Harang, CIN   1 7 10
Carlos Zambrano, CHC     3 3
Cole Hamels, PHI     2 2
John Smoltz, ATL     2 2
Jose Valverde, ARI     2 2
Jeff Francis, COL     1 1

The other NLC’er to make the list was The Moose, Carlos Zambrano. Apparently attacking your catcher still counts for something.

Bonds Indicted

Looks like even the federal government wants in on the Barry Bonds free-agent bonanza:

SAN FRANCISCO (Nov. 15) – Barry Bonds, baseball’s home run king, was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice Thursday and could face prison instead of the Hall of Fame for telling a federal grand jury he did not knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs.

The indictment, culminating a four-year investigation into steroid use by elite athletes, charged Bonds with four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice. If convicted, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Read the whole story on AOL Sports. Poor Bonds. What’s next? Branding his record-breaking baseballs with asterisks?
