    1st in MLB history to win 3 consecutive? Except for Maddux and Johnson who both won 4 consecutive.

      Yes, four, not three

        Just remembered this thread. How the hell do you win 4 in a row without winning 3 in a row?

          I didn’t say that

            What does, sets out to become the 1st pitcher in MLB history to win 3 consecutive Cy Young awards mean?

            It means, be the 1st to win 3 in a row. He would be the 3rd to win 3 in a row. He can’t possibly be the 1st to do something 2 other men have already accomplished.

            Your question contained a goal that was not true.

            There isn’t anyone who has strictly
            won three in a row. If you win just three in a row, you’re listed separate and alone when they list consecutive award winners.
