Pete Wentz Wins NL Cy Young

In an upset of shocking proportions, Fall Out Boy bassist and backup vocalist Pete Wentz was awarded the National League Cy Young Award on Tuesday, despite his never having thrown a pitch in the major leagues.

Wentz, a high school all-state soccer player, was nonetheless thrilled to receive baseball's highest pitching honor by taking 23 of 32 first-place votes. "I was definitely surprised. I thought it was going to be a lot closer," he said.

Wentz played briefly for the Dodgers, throwing one pre-game pitch for the organization in 2006.

Lincecum was totally robbed. But at least he's hooking up with Ashley Simpson.
