Remembering CC Sabathia’s 2007 Cy Season

November 9, 2014 | | One Comment

This week will mark seven years since CC Sabathia ended a long Cy Young drought for the Cleveland Indians organization.

The then-27-year-old Sabathia’s fantastic efforts on the mound helped to lead the Indians deep into the playoffs in what was one of the club’s best opportunities to make and win a World Series. The devastating American League Championship Series collapse against the Terry Francona-led Boston Red Sox ended the dream prematurely.

When Sabathia was announced by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America as the American League Cy Young winner on November 13th, 2007, it gave the team its first winner in 35 years, when Gaylord Perry took home the honor with a 24-6 record and a 1.92 ERA in 1972. Sabathia became just the second Indians pitcher to win the award since it was first established in 1956 in honor of the pitching legend Young, who spent 12 of his 22 years representing the city of Cleveland on the baseball diamond.
