CY YOUNG AWARD WINNERS
Each year the Baseball Writers Association of America gives the Cy Young Award to the outstanding pitcher in each league. The Mets have been honored with this award four times, by Tom Seaver in 1969, 1973, and 1975, and Dwight Gooden in 1985. Seaver should have won four Cy Youngs, but he inexplicably lost out to Ferguson Jenkins of the Cubs in 1971. David Cone might have won in 1988, when he was 20-3, were it not for the extraordinary season turned in by future Met Orel Hershiser of the Dodgers that season. Jerry Koosman found himself in a similar situation in 1976, when his 21-win season was overshadowed by another future Met, the Padres' Randy Jones.

The following Mets won the CY YOUNG Award while with other teams:
1957 - Warren Spahn (Milwaukee Braves)
1964 - Dean Chance (Los Angeles Angels)
1974 - Mike Marshall (Los Angeles Dodgers)
