Trevor Bauer, Not Yu Darvish, Wins the 2020 Players Choice Award for Outstanding Pitcher in the NL

Chicago Cubs

Whether it speaks to who wins the Cy Young Award remains to be seen, but for today, the players voted Trevor Bauer the best pitcher in the National League this year, not Yu Darvish. The other finalist was Jacob deGrom.

Bauer led the league in ERA and was dominant, without question (something something grip something something). To me, the closeness in all stats, but with more innings and more WAR, means Darvish should have won. I’ll save any appropriate outrage for the Cy Young announcement.
