We know that Jacob deGrom is the only pitcher in Mets history to win back-to-back CY Awards. But does that mean he’s put up the best two consecutive years in franchise history? Let’s use fWAR to check.
Not a huge surprise that he didn’t claim the top spot but the fact that he came in third is surprising, at least to me. Interesting that Seaver’s two best seasons both came in years where he did not claim the league’s top pitching honor. If we made that a condition, his best mark would be the combined 14.6 fWAR he had in ’75-’76.
