Tremendous insult to the great season of Julio Urías; nor among the Top 5 at Cy Young

The winners of the Cy Young Award for the 2021 Season from MLB They were announced this Wednesday, September 17, and the voting results were considered surprising beyond those who won the award. This because Julio Urías was not even the Top 5 in the ballots despite the outstanding campaign he had with the Los Angeles Dodgers, what fans consider an injustice.

Julio Urías was not even close to winning the National League Best Pitcher of the Year Award in 2021 because, somewhat surprisingly, he was not considered by the voters or to be part of the Top 5.

The Mexican was in eighth position among the top 10 finalists with only three votes, all for fifth place; which were awarded to him by journalists Charles Odum, Jack Etkin and Mike Perzak.

The disagreement about this decision and the lack of clarity of the criteria that are taken into account for the voting was present in social networks, since there are those who consider that this was an insult for the campaign that the pitcher had.

Julio Urías finished the 2021 MLB Season as the all-major league leader in the winning department with 20, as well as a 2.96 ERA, 1,018 WHIP and 195 strikeouts prescribed.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
