Angels pitcher Bartolo Colon has been voted the winner of the 2005 American League Cy Young Award.

He received seventeen 1st place votes and eleven 2nd place votes.
A reliever from an east-coast division winner came in 2nd place and last year's CYA winner came in 3rd place. ey=news_ana&fext=.jsp&c_id=ana

Colon won 21 games in 2005. He is the 2nd Angel to win the award. Dean Chance won it in 1964.

Bartolo gets a $500K bonus for winning the award - which is more than the entire $345K salary of 4th place finisher Cliff Lee of the Indians.
Two members of the Chicago Laundry Chumpions got some skimpy 5th and 6th place votes.

Congratulations Bartolo!
