Rays ace Blake Snell wins the 2018 AL Cy Young Award

MLB Trade Rumors Jacob de Grom Willing To Talk Extension With MetsMore

Jacob deGrom says he has not yet chosen a new agent after Brodie Van Wagenen left his agency to become Mets general manager, and the NL Cy Young Award victor is open to discussing a contract extension with NY.

Perhaps no pitcher had ever been such a hard-luck loser. He also ended the year with 24 straight quality starts which is the longest single-season streak in Major League Baseball history. deGrom's quality start streak is the third longest overall in Major League Baseball history (Bob Gibson, 26 straight, 1967-1968). The 25-year-old lefty had just 5.6 hits allowed per nine innings while striking out 221 across 180 2/3 innings, all while pitching in one of Major League Baseball's toughest divisions. Strikeouts are also a better measuring stick for the effectiveness of a pitcher, and deGrom racked up 269 Ks this season.

During one stretch late in the season, the Mets totaled 10 runs over seven of deGrom's outings, and four of those runs were driven in by the pitcher himself. Baseball-Reference calculated deGrom for 9.6 WAR. The Mets will give away 25,000 of these bobbleheads prior to a home game April 7 against Scherzer's Nationals. R.A. Dickey was the only other Met to win a Cy Young.

Snell got 17 first-place votes and 169 points to 13 first-place votes and 154 points for Verlander.

Dade Elections Dept. Expected To Finish Machine Recount Well Ahead Of Deadline
Florida's Republican Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera chided those county election departments that are lagging behind. And in oft-criticized Broward County , additional sheriff's deputies were sent to guard ballots and voting machines.

That's what made this season in the National League East so much fun. That was the lowest mark since Zack Greinke's in 2015, and the second lowest in the last 23 seasons in Major League Baseball. He was even demoted to Triple-A for a month in 2017.

"This mean as whole lot", Snell said."It's something I wanted to achieve this year". I got to watch Jacob deGrom up close, Aaron Nola for 20 percent of his starts and Max Scherzer for a pair of his.

Now that we have a 10-win Cy Young victor, we can finally put aside the notion that wins are an important way to measure the success of pitchers.

Verlander led the AL with 290 strikeouts while going 16-9 with a 2.52 ERA for AL West champion Houson.
