I don't know if this was mentioned in the prior thread or not, but Max Scherzer won the AL Cy Young award this year by a wide margin.

Quote:


The Tigers’ Max Scherzer easily won his first American League Cy Young Award, while the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw cruised to his second NL Cy Young in three years in the Baseball Writers’ Association of America voting, the results of which were announced on Wednesday night.

Scherzer, the AL starter in the All-Star Game, went 21-3, leading the majors in wins and his league in WHIP while striking out a career high 240 batters and helping Detroit to its third straight AL Central title. He received 28 of the 30 first-place votes. Fellow Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, the AL ERA leader, and White Sox lefty Chris Sale split the other two first place votes. Scherzer finished with 203 points overall, more than double the total of runner-up Yu Darvish of the Rangers, who had 93.
Max was the only 20 game winner in the majors this year, and also the only starting pitcher to allow less than 1 baserunner per inning. His 13 game winning streak to start the season was the best since Roger Clemens in 1986.

Baseball is also a secondary collegiate sport, but I think this is worthy of inclusion here as well.
