Mets Morning News for October 3, 2022

Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets After the losses with Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer on the mound, the Mets needed a good performance from Chris Bassitt and the offense to avoid a sweep. They didn’t get it.

Player Meter: Pitchers, September 19-25

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Last week was one of the better weeks of the season for the Mets’ pitching staff. This week is a bit more of a mixed bag. Obviously the most unexpected thing is the down arrow for Jacob deGrom, which is something that I don’t think I’ve ever done on a pitching meter before. Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker also both had mediocre starts this week, but Max Scherzer was unhittable in his first week back from the injured list and Chris Bassitt was excellent as well....

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. It was a mixed bag for the Mets’ rotation this week, with Chris Bassitt putting forth one mediocre start and one excellent one, Jacob deGrom striking out the world, but not keeping runs off the board in the way we are used to, David Peterson putting up a stinker, and Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker continuing to be very solid at the back end of the rotation. The bullpen, however, had a fantastic week. Especially notable was the work of Joely Rodríguez, who had perhaps...
