To Boomer & Gio’s - and Mets fan’s - delight, Wednesday afternoon they got themselves a silver lining of sorts after another dismal season.  Jacob deGrom was named the National League Cy Young award winner, earning 29 of 30, 1st place votes. 

First we heard Steve Somers’ brief interview with the one baseball writer, John Maffei, who didn’t have deGrom at the top of his ballot and clearly was unaware of Steve’s unique style.

Then the guys discussed the advantages and disadvantages to rewarding deGrom with a new contract and were pleased to get a glimpse of Mets’ manager, Mickey Callaway, thanks to Brodie Van Wagenen’s social media prowess.
