Meet the Mets For the second consecutive season, Jacob deGrom was crowned the best pitcher in the National League.

Player Meter: Pitchers, 2019 season

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB via A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared overall this season. Much like other seasons in the recent past, the Mets’ pitching staff in 2019 was a tale of two groups: the starting pitchers and the bullpen. Even despite the fact that the bullpen was overwhelmingly a disaster, the Mets still had the third best pitching staff in the National Leagues this season, as measured by fWAR—behind only the world champion Nationals and the juggernaut Dodgers. The Mets used 29 different pitchers in 2019 and that group was once again led by Jacob deGrom, who is...

Meet the Mets Steven Matz hosted his annual charity event and chatted briefly about how he feels about his new manager.

In an Instagram post Edgardo Alfonzo addressed his firing as Cyclones manager and wishes he could’ve stayed in the dugout instead of serving as an ambassador. Mookie Betts would certainly solve alot of problems for the team but a trade with Boston...

Let’s find the Mets a starting pitcher, Part 1

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports We begin our review of the free agent options who could help the Mets fill their rotation. With free agency officially underway, the Mets have an opportunity to improve upon a relatively positive 2019 season that saw them turn in their first winning record since 2016—and just the third winning season out of their past eleven. The team has several areas of need, but let’s start with a glaringly obvious one: starting pitching. Right now, the Mets have four-fifths of a good major league rotation with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, and Steven...
