Cy Young Gaffe

Saturday night was the annual BBWAA awards dinner. Justin Verlander and Sandy Alcantara picked up their Cy Young Awards. The BBWAA changed the wording in the trophy for this year—switching out “most outstanding pitcher” to “most valuable pitcher”…or so they thought. Instead, this prized trophy…from the writers but apparently not the editors…read “most valuble” pitcher. Oops.

Spellchecking would have been a valuable expenditure of time.
