Bumgarner: deGrom deserving of Cy Young

Last weekend in Cincinnati, Madison Bumgarner reclined in the visitor's clubhouse, craned his neck, and witnessed the end of a masterpiece. On the TV was Jacob deGrom, whom Bumgarner will face in a marquee matchup on Thursday at Citi Field, delivering his latest gem in a season full of them. Bumgarner paid attention because the entire baseball world is paying attention to deGrom, whose 1.71 ERA is building him a legitimate case for the National League Cy Young Award despite an 8-7 record.

Bumgarner has had seasons, he admits, where his win-loss record didn't reflect how he felt he'd pitched. What pitcher hasn't? That's part of the reason why Bumgarner welcomed a discussion about it prior to Wednesday's game at Citi Field, during which he expressed his admiration for the Mets' right-hander.

"It's impressive. Going into tomorrow, you know you probably can't give up a run," Bumgarner told MLB.com.

"It's so close with deGrom, [Max] Scherzer and [Aaron] Nola, too, but if I had a [Cy Young] vote, [deGrom is] probably where I'd go with it."

Bumgarner is in something of a unique position to speak on the subject. His Giants teams have always been built around pitching and defense. Not even the three World Series championship clubs were the type to outslug opponents.

Four times in his career, the Giants' offense has ranked lower than the Mets rank this season entering Wednesday's game (21st in runs scored in the Majors). During those seasons -- 2011, '13, and '17-18 -- Bumgarner sits seven games under .500 (32-39) despite a 3.06 ERA.

"I know we get the wins and losses by our name, but you're not winning games without the help of your team," Bumgarner said. "You can lose them [yourself]. But the whole deal is a team effort. I don't think there is any one answer to it. It's not always your fault."

Then there are times, Bumgarner makes sure to point out, when pitchers win because their offense provides in droves. The last time Bumgarner and deGrom matched up, the lefty beat deGrom despite allowing four earned runs in five innings. That game, Aug. 18, 2016, in San Francisco, "wasn't the game either of us were looking for," Bumgarner said. It ended in a 10-7 Giants win.

deGrom, of course, has rarely been afforded such fortune this summer. He's held opponents to three runs or less in 23 straight starts but is 6-7 in those games.

"In his case, I don't think [the record] should affect his candidacy at all," Bumgarner said. "If anybody disagrees with that, they clearly aren't watching the games. I don't think it should, but there is no doubt that it will cost him."

deGrom took the loss this afternoon despite allowing 1 ER and striking out 10

It's the 1st time in his career he's lost allowing 1 ER and striking out at least 10.

He's the 3rd pitcher to do so this season (Rich Hill, Chris Sale).

Any Boston fan that thinks Sale started 2 playoff games is an idiot too. I guess they are everywhere here.

No pitcher with less than 13 wins has ever won in a non strike year. I do not think a pitcher with a losing record has ever won either, so I guess wins & losses matter a little bit.

My vote right now would be for Nola. He is 2nd in Era and (15-3) in a pennant race. I would put Scherzer 2 and deGrom 3. Don't worry though, I don't get a vote!

How many pitchers had losing records with this kids stat.

Wins and loses DO NOT MATTER if you are evaluating a pitcher. If you give up 3 runs of less in 30 starts and you go 5-15 does that mean you suck ??

Smart ppl know what pitching stats matter.

Tell that to HOF voters.

They matter because if deGrom was (15-3) it wouldn't even be a debate. It is because of 1 reason and 1 reason only, his (8-8) record. Smart people know that too.

Yes, and none of them have less than 287 wins either. They didn't get in with 100

You can argue it all you want but this ^^^ is 1000% true. These "Debates" wouldn't be happening if it wasn't.

Well, W/L does matter or there wouldn't be a debate here, on ESPN, on MLB Network, on FOX Sports1 or anywhere else. We can each believe what we want I guess.

Wins and Losses don't matter. Just like runs and rbi dont mean much as stats when it comes to personal performance.

W/L and runs/rbi are dependent on team performance. The old voters are still overvalue these stats are getting weeded out year by year.

With that said even if we didn't look at wins and losses nobody would have a problem if Scherzer, Nola or DeGrom won.

PEACE

Nobody is debating Nola or Scherzer winning because they have the record to go with their stats. The debates everywhere are about deGrom. That wouldn't be happening if he wasn't (8-8). You guys can deny that all you want but it is the truth.

As of right now they have Kluber & Scherzer winning (Today's games included). It is pretty fucked up though because there is no way deGrom finishes lower than 3 IMO.

Tonight marks the 8th time this year deGrom has pitched at least 7.0 innings and allowed no more than 1 run yet failed to earn the win.

That ties the Mets' own Roger Craig (1963) for the most such starts by any MLB pitcher in a season in the live-ball era.


That's gotta be so frustrating getting no help, ever.

KID IS An ANIMAL

Best pitcher in baseball hands down right now

There is some crazy stat... I cant remember exactly,,,, I had this years stats in the thread that The MOD locked....

Something to the effect that in his last 50 starts he has given up 2 runs or less in more than half of his starts
