And the Academy Award for Best Performance by an actor in a leading role goes to...
Why risk getting hurt in a game that doesn't matter? Anybody who thinks CC has a legit shot at beating out Zack Greinke for the Cy Young is out of their mind and CC knows this. He's already won the Cy Young before but he's got his eyes on the bigger prize now, a World Series Championship ring. Now that the regular season is over, he can spend the time before his Game 1 start not worrying about impressing voters or willing enough strength out of his arm to get his team one more win, but focusing on his two potential opponents and getting his rest. And in the process, he gift-wrapped the Cy Young for Zack Greinke and even gave Tampa's No. 1 pick bust David Price a little confidence for himself. With as much good as he did other players and teams in addition to his own last night, CC should be given a Congessional Medal of Merit.
What a guy!
