On November 13, 2007 — Given their postseason match-ups of the CYA candidates, many baseball observers are surprised when CC Sabathia (19-7, 3.21) beats out Red Sox ace Josh Beckett (20-7, 3.27) for the American League Cy Young Award. In the ALCS, the 27 year-old Indian southpaw faced Beckett twice and lost each time, but voting takes place at the end of the regular season.

Sabathia is the first African-American Cy Young Award winner since Dwight Gooden in 1985 and the first African-American winner in the American League since Vida Blue in 1971.
