Lincecum goes back-to-back

San Francisco Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum won another NL Cy Young today, but he also became only the second pitcher to receive fewer first-place votes than another candidate.

Lincecum received 11 first-place votes, 12 second-place and nine third.

Runner-up Chris Carpenter received nine votes for first, 14 for second and seven for third. St. Louis teammate Adam Wainwright received 12 votes for first, five for second and 15 for third.

Javier Vazquez finished fourth, and Dan Haren fifth.

The Braves have made Vazquez available, in case you know of any teams looking for a veteran No. 1 starter.
