I still will be surprised if deGrom wins the Cy Young. There are just too many neanderthals out there voting who cling to the idiocy that W/L record means something. I think people have appreciated the surprising aspect of his record, but some will ultimately hold it against him, and as a result he'll probably finish second. And yes, I know about Felix Hernandez, but the fact is that since Hernandez won the Cy 11 of the 14 winners have led their league in wins. I think the pushback now from so-called "traditionalists" will be even bigger than it was in 2010 because of disgruntlement with how starters and relievers are being used across MLB. The best thing deGrom has going for him is that the Scherzer will be hurt by the Nats once again being a big disappointment (this is also idiotic, but that doesn't mean it won't happen). Unfortunately, by the same token, if the Phillies stay in contention Nola will benefit from that. I think deGrom needs to end up with 14 wins or so to win it, which will be a real challenge with the Mets' lineup, and it will be a help to him if the Braves end up winning the division reasonably easily.
