Jacob deGrom

What is there to say about Jacob deGrom that hasn’t been said about other great pitchers? He won the freakin’ Cy Young last year. Hopefully, he’s the same pitcher again in 2019.

deGrom doubles both his win total and ERA from 2018. – Jason Dye

Jacob deGrom established himself as the best pitcher in the National League last season. His ability to recapture his 2018 form will be key to the Mets overall success in 2019. Ultimately the team’s season will hinge on their pitching staff.- Allen Settle

After being the best pitcher in the National League last year, I think he continues to play well this year but at 85% of what he did in 2018. The run support should pick up however and I say he goes 18-8 with a 3.05 ERA and 210 K’s in 2019. I think a stint on the IL will cause him to make only 27 starts this season too. – Steve Malik

He continues to “deGrominate” and makes another run at a Cy Young. He also wins his first Gold Glove in 2019. – Nick Scheurer

deGrom is coming off the best season of his career and has been consistently solid, so I expect him to have another terrific season in 2019. I do not think he will be as great as he was in 2018 but he will continue to prove that he deserves to be the Mets’ ace. I also think his record will be better because the Mets have greatly improved their lineup. – Leen Amin

It’s tough to improve upon a year like the one Jacob deGrom just had, but 2019 won’t be much different for Jacob. He’ll be right back in the Cy Young race, but this time with more wins. – Mark Sales

It is natural to expect that deGrom falls back down to earth this year. Still the ace of the staff, but his ERA will be up another half run or so in 2019 at least. – Kevin Strauss

Everyone knows Jacob deGrom will regress in 2019 from his career-year in 2018. He’ll put together a season which combines his accomplishments from the past two seasons. I expect around 15 wins, an ERA in the 2.50s, and a race in September to retain his Cy Young crown. – Tim Boyle
