Jacob deGrom is unsurprisingly off to a great start in 2020

Photo by David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire via deGrom has continued to look fantastic in his first three starts of the 2020 season. Coming off back-to-back National League Cy Young Award seasons, Jacob deGrom has begun the 2020 season looking every bit as good a pitcher as he was over the past two years. For someone who has established himself as the best pitcher in the sport over that span, that should hardly be surprising, but in a Mets season that has gotten off to a rocky start, it’s worth pausing for a moment to continue to appreciate deGrom. In three starts thus far, the most...

Jacob deGrom pitching in Atlanta. | Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports The Mets actually giving deGrom run support? Is this the Twilight Zone? Mets baseball the last few days has been wild, to say the least. The Mets lost five games in a row, being swept at home by the Red Sox and then dropping three in a row to Atlanta. They also had Yoenis Cespedes opt out, and the team released a statement that made everyone concerned for his well being for a few hours during a game. And when they announced that he had simply opted out and he was fine—after nine full innings of baseball came and...

Wilson Ramos’ breakout came just in time for Mets, Jacob deGrom

Jacob deGrom was due to get some support. Wilson Ramos was due to provide it. Ramos arrived at Truist Park on Monday below the Mendoza line, hitless in his previous seven at-bats and without an RBI all season. The Mets catcher had just one extra-base hit (double) in 30 plate appearances. He was 0-for-6 with...

Final score: Mets 7, Braves 2—deGrom deDoes it again

Jacob deGrom threw six innings in tonight’s win. | Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Finally, the Mets give deGrom run support. In the wake of classic Mets drama yesterday, Jacob deGrom came out and once again showed his tremendous skill and grit. Jacob deGrom gave the Mets six innings of great pitching, allowing only two runs and five hits, striking out ten while only walking one. This was in spite of a rough fifth inning which is when he gave up the two runs, throwing over 25 pitches in that inning alone. Jeurys Familia had a tough inning where after striking out Dansby Swanson, one of...

Mets have three players go down with “tightness”

Mets have three players go down with “tightness”

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Robinson Cano, Amed Rosario, and Jeff McNeil all have tightness in various body parts. Apparently run support for Jacob deGrom must come at the cost of three quarters of the Mets infield, as the Mets had three players scratched from tonight’s game due to injury. Jeff McNeil was a late scratch just before game time due to back tightness. Andres Gimenez started in McNeil’s stead at third base. Gimenez later moved to shortstop when Amed Rosario was forced to exit the game in the third inning with left quad tightness. Rosario appeared to be running slowly...

Braves vs. Mets: Jacob deGrom will end Amazin’s skid

Adios. Yoenis Cespedes was a no-show Sunday. Word is Cespedes, batting .161, is opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID concerns or concerns about playing time that would prevent him from obtaining big bonuses. But insiders tell Stitches that he saw a cardboard cutout of a wild boar in the stands. Amazin! You...

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets If the Mets want to have a successful season they can ill afford to lose Jacob deGrom games but they managed to do just that in the series opener at home against the Red Sox. The Mets ace finally gave up runs for the first time in 30 innings but the bullpen gave up even more runs in the loss. The team attempted to come back led by a Yoenis Cespedes home run but a rally in the ninth ended with the bases loaded. They end the series against the Red Sox with Steven Matz on...

The usually steady relievers cost the Mets their third straight win

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Yet another deGrom start was wasted due to a shaky bullpen. After a rough opening series against the Braves, the Mets looked strong against the Red Sox during the first two games of this series in Boston. Despite 15 hits and a bases loaded with no outs situation in the bottom of the ninth, the Mets dropped the third game of this series 6-5. The team did not get back to Queens after last night’s game in Boston until 3:30am this morning, and the team looked it at times. Jacob deGrom started the game by giving up four straight balls hit to the outfield, but...
