Mets: Steven Matz best and worst case scenarios for 2019

New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz showed a lot of promise in 2018. Let’s look at the best and worst case scenario for him in 2019.

Mets end bleak season with Noah Syndergaard brilliance

A year to forget ended with at least something to remember. Noah Syndergaard pitched a complete-game shutout Sunday at Citi Field, silencing the Marlins, 1-0, and closing the Mets’ 77-85 season. Syndergaard allowed five hits and no walks while striking out six to lower his season ERA to 3.03 and improve his record to 13-4....

The Mets win, but also lose

The Mets win, but also lose

“When I’m around Met fans, when I’m around the orange and blue, it’s like I’m at home.” - David Wright On the most emotional night Citi Field has ever seen, David Wright and the Mets topped the Marlins 1-0 in 13 innings. Steven Matz closed out his season on a high note, and a cavalcade of relievers kept the Marlins at bay for seven innings after Matz departed. Austin Jackson finally broke through with a walkoff double in the thirteenth to close out David Wright night on a high note. Seemingly reinvigorated with his best friend back alongside him, Jose Reyes looked like his 2006...

David Wright says goodbye, Austin Jackson says goodnight in Marlins’ 1-0 walk-off loss

David Wright says goodbye, Austin Jackson says goodnight in Marlins’ 1-0 walk-off loss

Great situational pitching by Trevor Richards and Miami’s ‘pen kept hope alive despite a dormant offense. Their legacy is secure. Saturday night’s scoreless marathon will ensure the 2018 Miami Marlins are remembered as the team that always kept battling, even when nobody wanted to watch them play. David Wright’s farewell was drawn out during a four-hour, 14-minute game until the Mets mercifully plated the first run to win 1-0. Trevor Richards: 6.2 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K (104 pitches) Steven Matz: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K (97 pitches) Most fans who showed up or tuned in did...

Final Score: Mets 4, Braves 3

The Mets finally broke through and won David Wright’s final game. It took 13 innings, but the Mets topped the Marlins 1-0 in 13 innings on David Wright night. Steven Matz was brilliant for six innings, and the bullpen was equally excellent for seven of their own, but the offense could not break through until Austin Jackson lined a walk off single in the 13th. The outcome of the game is largely irrelevant next to David Wright leaving the field for the last time. He walked once. He made a play in the field. He got his uniform dirty on a slide. Gary, Keith, Howie, Josh, every fan watching,...

Jacob deGrom’s stellar season: Start #31

Jacob deGrom’s stellar season: Start #31

It was another history-making start for the righty. The only downside to Jacob deGrom’s 2018 season has been the lack of support from the team around him. Too often he has been the captain of a sinking ship, having to simultaneously steer and bail while everyone else wonders why their feet are wet. That all changed when the Mets had to face both of his closest competitors in the same week. First up was Aaron Nola and the Phillies. The Phillies ultimately got the win, but Steven Matz took Nola deep and the Phillies’ ace failed to get out of the sixth which prevented him from getting a...

Steven Matz has taken first step to being pitcher he wants to be

WASHINGTON — Steven Matz received a homework assignment earlier this season. Unhappy with the manner the Mets left-hander was reacting to adversity, pitching coach Dave Eiland told Matz to begin studying other pitchers, and not just on his own team. “The days he’s not pitching, whether it be one of our pitchers or an opposing...

Final Score: Mets 8, Nationals 6—Raindrops, Runs, and Relievers

The Mets mounted a big enough lead to hold off the Nationals through the soggy conditions. In a marathon 4 hour and 14 minute mess of a ballgame, the Mets pulled off an 8-6 victory, despite less than ideal conditions for both clubs. Both starting pitchers left the game early and neither bullpen was particularly sharp, making for a long afternoon. The Mets got off to a quick 1-0 lead, building a small ball run in the first inning. But the Nationals took the lead in the third, putting up a three spot against Steven Matz and chasing him from the game early. Matz had to work around traffic in...
