A lot of guys had great seasons and were worthy of consideration this year, but in my mind Cliff Lee was the only true choice for a winner.  He had a great year, period.  Halladay, Rodriguez, even Nathan had seasons that are worth remembering, but Lee was not only great but pivotal in Cleveland's great run in the last portions of the season.  When you can make your fans forget that they just lost their actual ace, you're doing pretty good.

Up tomorrow:  MVP
