Tom Seaver is now in Jacob deGrom's sights.
The shortstop swimmer at Stetson University won his second straight Cy Young award on Wednesday, collecting 29 of the 30 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America.
The Mets ace got these praises on Twitter from the guy who used to be his agent: "Another great year, & # 39;" Brodie Van Wagenen tweeted. “Winning back-to-back Cy Young Awards is proof of @ JdeGrom19's work ethic and dedication to his craft. Congratulations Jacob! #GOAT & # 39; & # 39;
Yes, deGrom is GOAT – or maybe deGOAT.
He is generally respected throughout the game by opponents, just as Tom Brady is in the NFL. It's your NFL GOAT.
And just like Patriots quarterback Bill Belichick has in his corner, doing what he can to get the GO back to the playoffs year after year, with Brady winning the Super Bowl six times, BVW needs to lead his DEGOAT to much greener pastures.
& # 39; 69 Miracle Mets won the World Series. The Mets, of course, have won just another World Series in their existence, like 1986. Every time deGrom spoke last season, he made it an important point to say that the team needed to come back to the fall season.
Sure, he wanted to win a second straight Cy Young award, he's driven, but deGrom is hungry for the big October step.
Over the past two Cy Young seasons, deGrom has thrown 421 innings with a 2.05 ERA and owns a 21-17 record for all the great work. He has struck out 524 batters during this span. He signed a five-year extension of $ 137.5 million just before his first start of the 2019 season and lives up to every penny of that contract this past year.
"In 2015, the entire World Series playoffs, it was the most fun I've played baseball and that's why you play this game," deGrom said Wednesday night. "It's the ultimate prize for the best team and that's what you're trying to do.
" We showed that we have a good team in the second half. If we could have done it all year we would have been there. think it was something to build on from last year and that is the goal next year, to put all these pieces together and play really good team baseball from start to finish. & # 39; & # 39;
DeGrom is so close
Van Wagenen continues to talk about building a better bullpen and blew his face last winter with the acquisition of Edwin Diaz. He has to do much better this year.
Mets can't waste this level of skill anymore.
Yes, which November for the Mets was such a zero October, Van Wagenens Mets won two major awards, Pete Alonso won Rookie of the Year and now deGrom has won his second raka Cy Young.
Individual h Team hardware is where it is.
The fall summary of deGrom contains four starts, all made in 2015 when the Mets lost to the Royals in the World Series. He is 3-1 with a 2.88 ERA. Imagine if Brady just came to a Super Bowl.
DeGOAT yearns for the spotlight after the season. He deserves it.
Nationals Max Scherzer made it clear in October that three Cy Young awards were good, but winning the World Series is true happiness. In February on a quiet spring training morning, Scherzer told him his goal was not to win another Cy Young but to finally win the World Series.
After winning Game 7 over the Astros, Scherzer said it perfectly: “We fought together, we stayed in the fight and we won the fucking fight. We did it. & # 39; & # 39;
Here's hoping that Jacob deGrom & # 39; s Mets can get into the fucking fight of 2020.
