“The day they were announcing the Cy Young [last November], I started to think, What do I say if he doesn’t win? … It was our anniversary weekend, so we were leaving that night for the Woodstock Inn in Vermont no matter what. Win, lose, or whatever. I think it was 11:30 in the morning when they called and said he won. It was such an awesome feeling … There wasn’t one single person [at the inn] who even knew who he was. It was just so funny. I kept thinking, There has to be someone who is a sports fan who is going to say congratulations.”

– Alyson Carpenter speaking to reporter Allen Lessels. Alyson is the wife of New Hampshire native Chris Carpenter. In 2005, Chris won the National League Cy Young Award for best pitcher. He joins fellow New Englanders Mike Flanagan (1979), Steve Bedrosian (1987), and Tom Glavine (1991 and 1998).
