Former Vanderbilt star David Price wins Warren Spahn Award | tennessean.com | The Tennessean

The Spahn Award is based solely on statistics — wins, ERA and strikeouts — and Price didn’t take the lead over Boston’s Jon Lester until he struck out eight in eight shutout innings against Baltimore in his final start. CC Sabathia had won the Spahn Award the past three years, and other previous winners include Johan Santana, Dontrelle Willis, Andy Pettitte and Randy Johnson.

“To win an award named after an icon in baseball like Warren Spahn, it means a lot,” Price said. “The previous winners, CC Sabathia, Johan and Randy Johnson, those are the game’s best left-handed pitchers. Those are the guys that I grew up watching my entire life.

Congrats to DP for winning this award!

It is refreshing to continue to see David do well and to still keep that engaging personality and friendly style.

I remember well his junior year at Vandy when we all hoped he  would lead us to Omaha and the College World Series.  It is my hope that this year’s team, led by Sonny Gray, will help complete that dream.
