Aaron Nola Is A Golden God And, As It Stands, The National League Cy Young Winner

And he hasn’t even begun to peak.

Yesterday afternoon, August 22nd, 2018, Aaron Nola was Mike McDermott and Max Scherzer was Johnny Chan. Nola sat down with the best and he won. 8 strong, 9 K’s and most importantly, Bryce Harper was 0-4, with 2 k’s against him including this HUUUGE one to close out the 8th.

That was military grade cheddar Harper swung through on pitch 102 from Nola. Now, this used to be the homer in me talking, but it is clearly evident now. To be honest, I was on a podcast yesterday saying Degrom and his wins was the Cy Young, but yesterday’s performance against the Nat cemented it for me. As it stands today, the WAR (for pitchers) leadin’, 2.13 ERA holdin’, 15 game winnin’, drawl talkin’, knee bucklin’, Bryce Harper whiffin’, most uninteresting man on the planet, Aaron Nola, is your National League Cy Young.

Here are a couple more stats to help keep your Friday Morning Aaron Nola chubby at full mast:

With a minimum of 100 IP, Aaron Nola is the MLB leader in ERA, WHIP, OPS against, BA against, BABIP, Hits Allowed, wOBA in his 2nd, 3rd and 4th time through the batting order.

Versus the Washington Nationals this season, Nola is 3-0 with a 1.25 ERA. Bryce Harper is 1-10 against him with 5 K’s

Versus teams with a .500+ WP, Nola is 6-2 with a 2.82 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.

I don’t know how much you guys needed to read those sabermetrics, but it sure felt great to type. More on Nola, he loves the kids, loves to give back to the great community of Philadelphia, and loves to goof around with his best friend and our team leader, Rhys Hoskins.

After watching that interview, reading those stats and watching the game yesterday, if you don’t think Aaron Nola is the best pitcher in the National League, then fuck you. Pennant race, engaged.
