Cards’ Wainwright express disappointment over Cy Young vote

Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright admitted to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he was disappointed that neither he nor teammate Chris Carpenter won the 2009 National League Cy Young Award.

Wainwright tied for the major-league lead with 19 wins, led the NL with 233 innings pitched and posted a 2.63 ERA. Carpenter went 17-4 with an NL-best 2.24 ERA.

"I would have been OK with it if Carp had won. I obviously would have appreciated winning it as well," Wainwright told the newspaper. "The hard part was hearing it was neither one of us."

Instead, Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum won the award for the second consecutive season, going 15-7 with a 2.48 ERA and an NL-leading 261 strikeouts.
