Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 19)

I wonder how things would have gone for Noah Syndergaard in the first inning if he’d replaced that 0-2 fastball to Carlos Beltran at the knees with the slider he threw Greg Bird in the fourth or the curve he threw Didi Gregorius in the fifth. Luckily for us, Syndergaard tried to do that very …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (September 15)

I imagine the chat between Jacob deGrom (13-8) and Pitching Coach Dan Warthen in the fourth inning last night went a little something like this: “The fastball’s not working coach,” deGrom says. “Why in God’s name would you throw Justin Bour three straight fastballs, then?” “Tuesday is sort of a stupid day, isn’t it? I …

MLB Daily Heat Check Wednesday, September 16

Here you’ll find information regarding the pitchers that light up the radar gun each and every night. I’ve listed for both starters and relievers the top average pitch velocity with a heading for type. It doesn’t equate to quality of an outing or take into consideration the end result of the pitch (sometimes really, really …

Logan Verrett: About Last Night (September 14)

Maybe it’s just me, but I find Justin Bour to be the most fascinating hitter in the Marlins lineup. He’s not the most dangerous, though he certainly has enough to power to make the team pay as he showed in Miami a week ago. How would the Mets attack Bour in this series? If you …

Jacob DeGrom: About Last Night (September 09)

We can say what we want about the six-man rotation—love it, hate it, find it novel, etc.—but Jacob deGrom (13-7) has already surpassed his career high in innings pitched with that total to approach 200 by season’s end, and he hasn’t exactly looked his best lately. He was beat around mercilessly by the Phillies, and …

Bartolo Colon: About Last Night (September 05)

In this episode of revolving door infielder pick ‘em, starting at first for your New York Mets is Eric Campbell. Over the last four games, the team has started Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murphy, Kelly Johnson, and Campbell. What does Campbell do with his opportunity? He turns a sweet double-play on an Ichiro Suzuki grounder in …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (September 04)

One thing I find impressive interesting about Mets games lately is that you never quite know what the infield is going to look like. One day Wilmer Flores is playing short, the next he’s playing the second, and then he won’t be seen for a few days. Michael Cuddyer starts at first. Daniel Murphy starts …

Jacob DeGrom: About Last Night (August 29)

Yesterday I discussed how Max Scherzer struck out Ichiro Suzuki with high heat, offering a look with the fastball up and out of the zone before enticing Ichiro with a nearly identical pitch to force him to swing. In Saturday’s game against the Red Sox, Jacob deGrom (12-7) approached Blake Swihart in the second inning …
