Jacob deGrom was solid in his All-Star Game appearance

Jacob deGrom was solid in his All-Star Game appearance

The righty faced a tough lineup in his second All-Star Game appearance. In his second All-Star Game appearance, Mets ace Jacob deGrom was tasked with facing former MVPs and MVP candidates in his one inning of work. He set down Mookie Betts and Jose Altuve with relative ease, but next up was Mike Trout, who deGrom wanted to face in 2015. This time, the perennial MVP candidate took him deep, even though deGrom got to two strikes in the count. The home run didn’t seem to phase deGrom much, as he struck out J.D. Martinez to end the inning. Giving up a home run to the best player on the planet...

The team should work with deGrom and his agent to make the extension happen. This isn’t exactly new material here, as it was just over a month ago that it seemed the Mets could take control of the narrative surrounding their franchise by doing things like signing deGrom and fellow top-notch pitcher Noah Syndergaard...

Jake at the Break: how does deGrom’s 2018 stack up against past Mets Cy Young winners?

Looking back at what Seaver, Gooden, and Dickey did in their award winning seasons. Three Mets pitchers have won Cy Young awards since the team’s inaugural 1962 season: Tom Seaver three times (1969, 1973, 1975), Dwight Gooden in 1985, and R.A. Dickey in 2012. Jacob deGrom was one of, if not the, best pitchers in baseball in the first half of this season, and is on the shortlist for National League Cy Young contenders at the All-Star Break. How does deGrom’s first half stack up to prior Met Cy Young winners at the mid-point of the season? Let’s dig in. Tom Seaver...
