The Giants’ Tim Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award yesterday. The AL winner will be announced today.

Here are some signs that you probably won’t be winning the Cy Young Award:

10. You’re backed by the Mets’ bullpen

9. Not only don’t you make what Joe The Plumber hopes to earn, but you don’t even make what he actually earns

8. Your best curve is your beer gut

7. You can’t focus now that you know how huge the pitching rubber really is

6. The manager gets the bullpen up as soon as you take the mound

5. Your fastball couldn’t break a plane -- not even one of American’s

4. Your rotation spot might be downsized

3. The government says your ERA is “too big to fail”

2. Opposing hitters are always offering to drive you to the stadium

1. You actually played with Cy Young
