Readers go Beast Mode over Marshawn Lynch, King Felix, UW complaints

Mariners Why Hernandez deserved Cy Young Felix Hernandez deserved the American League Cy Young Award. All the writers Larry Stone mentioned in his column (“Hernandez not winning Cy Young a stunner,” Thursday) who placed Felix second were from the Midwest or Southwest. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
