Hernandez wins AL Cy Young

Felix Hernandez was named the winner of the American League Cy Young Award on Wednesday, receiving 21-of-28 first place votes to easily outdistance runner-up David Price of Tampa Bay.

 

Hernandez won just 13 games for the Mariners in 2010 -- the lowest total ever recorded by a Cy Young winner in either league for starting pitchers in a full season -- but he led the AL with a 2.27 ERA in his 34 starts. He also paced the league in innings pitched (249.2) and his 232 strikeouts trailed only Jered Weaver's 233.

 

Yankees ace CC Sabathia was third in the voting, with Jon Lester finishing fourth. Lester's became the first left-handed Red Sox pitcher since 1989 (Bruce Hurst) to land a top-five finish in Cy Young voting.

Patriots practice: Brady is back

FOXBORO -- As was the case last week, Tom Brady returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday to rest his ailing foot. Brady said during a national conference on Wednesday afternoon that he was "doing well" and was looking forward to playing on Sunday against the Colts. 

 

Jarrad Page (calf) and Myron Pryor (back) were both missing for the open portion of practice as the Patriots worked out in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields behind Gillette Stadium.

Garnett on D&H: 'A little pep in my step'

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett joined the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning to talk about his resurgence this season. Garnett has returned to form after struggling for much of last season following knee surgery in May 2009.

 

"Rest is everything," Garnett said. "And being healthy is another thing. I don't like speaking about my own personal health, because everybody in the league has something they're dealing with, and I was no different from it. Obviously, you can see the difference in the play. I have a little pep in my step, I've got a little bounce in my hop. And it feels good.

 

"A lot of times last year I was playing subpar guys, man, and they were getting by me, doing different things to where I knew that if I was 100 percent, no way that some of those things were happening. To be honest, I'm blessed. It's something I have to deal with every day. But you can see the difference. You can see the...

Rivers on D&C: J. O'Neal will produce for C's

Talking during his weekly radio appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that center Jermaine O'Neal will be able to offer some value to the team after taking time to rest and rehab his injured knee.

 

"I'm not as concerned as I was before," Rivers said of O'Neal. "I think he has a really good chance of getting healthy now that he's taking a break. He's going to take a break. I do think he'll be able to give us something. The key for us and the key for him is to get healthy where he doesn't have to play three games and have to go out. So I think what we're doing right now is the right thing.

 

"With Jermaine, he needed this. His knee was hurting a little bit from training camp and it continued to hurt. The doctors looked at it and he needed a little rehab, he needed a lot of rest, and we're going to give him both."

 

Rivers said that his goal was...
