That 1.70 ERA, however, was the sixth-lowest posted by any major league pitcher since the mound was lowered in 1969, and voters weren't about to gloss over that fact. He also led the AL with a 1.89 ERA and the majors with a 217 ERA+, extremely impressive figures, both. "To be a Cy Young Award victor, you're in great company, and it truly is an honor". "I had this goal in mind.I put in the work, and it means a whole lot to me". He was even demoted to Triple-A for a month in 2017. A strong second half set the stage for 2018.

Speaking on Wednesday night after being awarded his first Cy Young, deGrom said he is still "trying to figure everything out" after Van Wagenen gave up his career as an agent to deGrom, Yoenis Cespedes, Todd Frazier and others to become the Mets' general manager last month.

Pence acknowledged that India had made substantial progress economically as well as diplomatically in regional and worldwide affairs, Gokhale said.

Snell returned on August 4 in a four-inning start and then reeled off nine consecutive wins. The victim of precious little run support from his Mets teammates all season, deGrom finished with a pedestrian 10-9 record, by far the lowest win total ever for a Cy Young Award-winning starting pitcher.

He did so with the fewest innings of any starter over a full season, with 180 2/3; Kershaw won with 198 1/3 in 2014 for the Dodgers. While Snell had the ERA edge over the competition, Verlander pitched about 35 more innings and led the league with 290 strikeouts. Aaron Nola of the Philadelphia Phillies was third with 86 points, followed by Colorado's Kyle Freeland and Arizona's Patrick Corbin. Severino is the first Yankee to get Cy Young votes in back-to-back years since (who else?) CC Sabathia, who had three straight top four finishes in the voting from 2009-11.
