With the Major League Baseball regular baseball season nearing an end, it’s time to start thinking about who will take home some hardware.
The Cy Young Award is given to the best pitcher in each league. From wins to ERA, the pitchers go about a season-long battle to determine which hurler is the best in their league.
But what exactly constitutes “the best?”
Take New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom, for example. The right-hander is having a spectacular season, but New York has failed to win in many of his outings. As a result, deGrom has an 8-9 record, but is sporting a National League-best 1.71 ERA.
There’s still a chance he will finish with an above-.500 record before the season concludes. But should a pitcher with a losing record be able to win the Cy Young Award?
We asked baseball fans that very question in this week’s Dunkin’ Donuts poll question. To see the results, check out the video above.
