Ivan Nova: Potential CY Young Winner

Ivan Nova is an elite pitcher.

I bet that's not a sentence most people expected to hear in 2017. Nova's career has been up and down at best with struggles in control and health. That was the way it was. Until, he was traded to Pittsburgh.

Over the last two years with the Pirates (and only fifteen games), Nova has shown he's not the same pitcher he used to be. In those fifteen games, he's only walked four batters. That's equal to the number of complete games he's had in that time. This number of walks leads to him having a 16.75 SO/BB ratio. That's insane. In seven years with the Yankees he's averaged only a 2.28 SO/BB ratio. Either a change of scenery is all he needed or Ray Searage worked his magic on yet another reclamation project.

In my lifetime, I haven't seen such a dominant pitcher in a Pirates' uniform, especially one so late in his career. The control he's showing at thirty is astounding. To only walk four people in fifteen starts is unheard off.

The fire Nova has shown so far this year is reminiscent of R.A. Dickey's 2012 campaign . A resurgence almost no one saw coming. However, if Nova keeps up what he's shown for an entire season, his place will be set in the books.

Nova has the chance to do something special, and I believe he will. He is my prediction to win the NL Cy Young. He hasn't shown signs of slowing down any time soon. It's time for something special. It's time for the Cy Young to come back to Pittsburgh.
