VERLANDER WINS AGAIN!
Justin Verlander is taking home some more hardware
Justin Verlander winning the Cy Young award certainly doesn't come as a surprise. Verlander finished the year with an 18-4 record with a 1.75 ERA while recording 185 strikeouts. Verlander received all 30 first place votes, winning in a landslide.
One of the best to ever do it.

Pretty impressive when you consider Verlander posted the best ERA of his career at 39-years-old and coming off Tommy John surgery.
Here's a look at his 2022 highlights
Will he return to Houston?
Astros fans are still hoping that JV returns to the team, but reports are indicating that he's looking for a top of the market deal that the team may not be willing to pay. Something similar to Max Scherzer's 3-year 130 million dollar contract.
Whether he returns to the Astros or not, winning another Cy Young certainly helps his case to get paid big money.
