Roy Halladay wins NL Cy Young Award

A perfect game, 21 wins, a no-hitter in the playoffs and now a Cy Young Award.

What a year for the Phillies Roy Halladay, who was unanimously selected as the 2010 National League NL Cy Young Award winner today.

Halladay becomes only the fifth pitcher in history to win a Cy Young Award in both leagues.

In addition to being the winningest pitcher in the NL this year, Halladay also topped the majors in innings pitched (250), shutouts (4) and complete games (9).

The only downer in an otherwise storybook season was the failure of the Phillies to reach the World Series.

Halladay also won the AL Cy Young in 2003 while pitching for the Blue Jays.
