Five years later: A look back at Jacob deGrom in the NLDS

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Somehow the Mets’ ace has only gotten better since his memorable NLDS starts. Let’s jump into the Wayback Machine to a time that both seems impossibly long ago and yet can still be seen in the rearview mirror. The year 2015 was a mere five years ago, and yet that Mets team is now nearly unrecognizable. Since then, they’ve had four managers, Carlos Beltran included, several general managers, including the three-headed monster they assembled after Sandy Alderson, and of course, are set for an ownership change. Steven Matz, Noah Syndergaard, Jeurys Familia,...

2020 Mets takeaways: The rotation

2020 Mets takeaways: The rotation

Photo by G Fiume/ Jacob deGrom was elite. The rest of the rotation, not so much. If the 2020 Mets had had a better rotation, they’re probably in the playoffs right now. Instead, the group ran a 5.37 ERA, the fifth-worst mark in the majors, consistently putting the team in insurmountable holes early and squandering a great group of position players. While the rest of the rotation was mostly horrible, Jacob deGrom maintained the excellence we’ve become accustomed to over the past three seasons. Despite having to battle through a late-season hamstring injury, deGrom posted a 2.38 ERA, a...

Final Score: Nationals 4, Mets 3—Eliminated

Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports The Mets were unable to win with their ace on the mound and were officially eliminated from playoff contention in the first game of today’s doubleheader.

Neither pitcher was at his most dominant, but in the end the Nationals came out on top. Both pitchers were victim of the long ball. The Mets went ahead 2-0 on a home run by Wilson Ramos in the third inning and the Nationals answered in the bottom of the...
