On this date in 1975, Jim Palmer is named the AL Cy Young Award winner after leading the league in wins (23), shutouts (10) and ERA (2.09).
"Palmer is the greatest 'situation' pitcher I've ever seen. He makes them beat him on a single and one run at a time. Most of the homers he gives up are solo because he only works to their power when the bases are empty." - Ray Miller
