The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) Wednesday named Jacob deGrom and Blake Snell the top pitchers in their respective leagues (I don’t think we’re allowed to say Cy Young!).
deGrom easily beat Max Scherzer 828-564 points. Aaron Nola, Kyle Freeland and Patrick Corbin rounded out the top five. I voted for Scherzer, Nola, deGrom, Miles Mikolas and Freeland. Wins matter to me. What can I say?!
Over in the American League, it was Snell over Justin Verlander 731-462. Chris Sale, Corey Kluber and Gerrit Cole were next. I had Snell, Kluber, Verlander, Trevor Bauer and Sale.
