Poor run support may have limited Jacob deGrom to just 10 wins, but voters rewarded his MLB-best 1.70 ERA with the 2018 NL Cy Young Award by giving him 29 of 30 first-place votes.

William Weinbaum ESPN 

In the pre-Jacob deGrom era, three Mets won the NL Cy Young Award: Tom Seaver (1969, ‘73 & ‘75), Dwight Gooden (1985) & R.A. Dickey (2012). In ‘73, Seaver was 19-10 — the first time the winner had fewer than 20 Ws (the award began in ‘56).
