Rockies news and links for November 29, 2018 Here’s how Rockies could land Syndergaard | Rockies.comThe Colorado Rockies have at least some reported interest in New York Mets’ starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, as Thomas Harding of MLB.com relays. Syndergaard flew under the radar a bit in 2018 thanks to the otherworldly dominance of his teammate Jacob deGrom. However, “Thor” still put together an excellent 154 1/3 inning campaign with a 3.03 ERA. The Rockies have had previous interest in Syndergaard dating back to the 2015 season when he was involved in talks on a possible Troy...

Jacob deGrom had an historic season in 2018

The lanky righty had one of the best seasons in Mets history. Back in mid-July when I first started reviewing Jacob deGrom’s starts, he was in the midst of putting together a pretty spectacular season. He was leading the league in ERA, and the rest of his numbers held up well against both his contemporaries and other special seasons in Mets’ history. As the season wore on, there were starts I was excited to recap, but more often than not it was reliving the frustration of deGrom’s latest masterpiece that went for naught. Some combination of the offense, defense, and the bullpen...
