Very good question and I'm scratching my head. Likewise, I can guess the Heisman but the Cy Young is a mystery.

I figured Jackson, had to google the other. But Bo must have faced several Cy winners.

I would have never guessed Viola without looking it up.

I didn't even remember Viola as winning the Cy Young

...he is just taking up a spot ,

With the introduction of World Baseball , MLB is giving a clear path for players of countries to get a shot . It used to be Cuba , players by the way of Central America, South America , Mexico leagues Also smuggling trafficking players into the US by way from Cuba a big $$$ sting , Active MLB players helping by the way of Millions $$ to help out Now this gives them a Walk Right In .

It's all about the pitching...always was, always will be for them.

Especially now, they don't have Colon to bail them out this year.
