He is simply de best.
Jacob deGrom says he has not yet chosen a new agent after Brodie Van Wagenen left his agency to become Mets general manager, and the NL Cy Young Award victor is open to discussing a contract extension with NY.
DeGrom finished the 2018 season with an MLB-best 1.70 ERA over 217 innings.
Snell received 17 first-place votes for the Cy Young, which was four more than second-place Justin Verlander.
DeGrom received 29 first-place votes and 207 points in voting announced Wednesday by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. For the Cy Young, I get to decide how much things should matter in relation to one another, be it innings pitched, run prevention, strikeout totals, wins, team wins, general consistency, etc. I had this goal in mind. I think being able to accomplish something that has been a dream of yours is just something special. Both deGrom and Snell are first-time Cy Young winners.
DeGrom allowed three runs or fewer in 29 consecutive starts to close the season, breaking Leslie "King" Cole's 108-year-old record of 26 such outings.
Incredibly, Scherzer, who has already won three Cy Young Awards, turned in perhaps the finest season of his career in 2018.

Knowing that we have one of these odd exoplanets so nearby could allow us to get to know this planetary species a little better. This is because it's moving quickly in relation to the sun, and it's the nearest single star in the sky to us, Butler said.
Tape Doesn't Implicate Prince MBS, NSA Bolton Says
After almost two years of vacancy, President Donald Trump nominated retired Army General John Abizaid , 67, to fill the open U.S. Though the audio recording does not conclusively implicate Crown Prince, analysts say it's an important clue.
Comment about ‘public hanging’ spells trouble for MS senator
Thad Cochran when he retired in April, and she ran this fall to hold the seat for the remaining two years of Cochran's term. On Sunday morning, a video was posted of Hyde-Smith campaigning alongside a cattle rancher.
"I want to thank the baseball writers for this honor", deGrom said.
The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, he became the seventh rookie victor voted a Cy Young, joining fellow Mets Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden.
"It's fantastic!" Dickey said in a text message to The Post.
Clearly, deGrom is the New York Mets top player as he outshined his fellow teammates over the past couple of years.
DeGrom credited a conversation he had with a Hall of Famer for helping change his approach this season. This earned him a return back to Triple-A for seven starts. He'll need to determine a new representative before any extension talks can begin in earnest, as Van Wagenen has fully severed ties to all clients and all duties from his former agency, CAA Baseball.
Award voters seemed like they had a tough decision on their hands when deciding which of the NL Cy Young finalists to crown the best in the league, but in the end, it had to be the man in Flushing.
