Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Nov 14, 2019 3:22 am

Jacob deGrom has won his second straight Cy Young award, receiving 29 of 30 first place votes.

DeGrom, 31, joins Randy Johnson, Tim Lincecum, Clayton Kershaw, Scherzer, Greg Maddux and Sandy Koufax on the list of NL back-to-back winner.

Hyun-Jin Ryu finished second in voting.

\"I feel like I was trying to better what I did in 2018,\" deGrom said Wednesday. \"I think that was something I struggled with to start this year, was kind of dwelling on what happened last year. Kind of not focusing on the task ahead as much as I probably should have.\"
