Talk about high praise.
Former Mets powerman Tom Glavin says Jacob deGrom’s 2021 season will remind him of another Facebook-dominated baseball hall.
“I witnessed it [Greg Maddux’s] a four-year run in Atlanta when he won four straight Cy Young Awards and what it was so like [deGrom] means, if any [Maddux] went out and gave up two runs in the game, you had scratched your head: “Oh my God, what happened?” “Glavin, the old Braves mug, told Tiki and Tirni on Monday. “If you go there 35 times, you spend a third of your start where you got it. You get out of there, put your glove on the hill, and win. Then you have a third, then you don’t have it, then a third in the middle, you have to figure out how to swallow them, and they are the ones who determine if you have a lucky year or not. great year. ”
DeGrom is another step up this season. His 0.69 ERA level in 13 starts has never matched. It is the same as the money he earned in the amount of RBI (six). And, unlike previous seasons, it’s finally backed up – deGrom has recorded seven wins this season.
“Things like that are just stupid,” Glavin said. “It’s hard to say, especially in today’s game and the fact that the guy can go out and have the advantage he has. I think you should add this run he started right now to the conversation with the biggest pitching in the game. “
Although they played at different times, deGrom’s stats matched Maddux’s.
In 1992-95, when the MLB-record won four Cy Young awards, Maddux had a 1.98 ERA. In the last four years, the DeGrom ERA has been 1.90.
“[Maddux] There has never been such a bad thing in four years, ”Glavin said. “He’s never been there, and he just hasn’t been there. Now you look [deGrom] and what he does is the same, but he does it foolishly. ‘
This is not the first time the Braves star has compared deGrom to Maddux. All-Star third-place finisher Chipper Jones has called for DeGrom’s 2018 season – the Mets superstar Cy Young’s campaign has gone 10-9 with an MLB-best 1.70 ERA – “Maddux-esque”.
“I saw absolute dominance,” Jones said Said in 2018. – I mean, you are always talking about the season.
