Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (August 24)

You’re really going to make me do this? Seriously? You are a cruel, sadistic individual to make me relive last night’s Jacob deGrom start. It was a tough night. It brought back all those mean, dark thoughts about the Phillies that I’ve suppressed for so long. At one point my wife asked if I wanted …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (August 18)

I guess there’s an extremely good reason why Jacob deGrom’s ERA is now sitting at 1.98 and opponents are hitting .192 against him. It’s impossible to figure out where he’s going to actually throw the ball. Never mind the fact that he throws two varieties of fastballs, each with different movement, a changeup he’ll drop …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (August 12)

I feel like I need to defend Jacob deGrom’s (11-6) outing. As though his two hits allowed over seven dominant innings isn’t enough defense to his title as Best Right-Handed Starter on the East Coast with Long Hair. With another few outings like Wednesday night, best starter in the major leagues isn’t out of grasp. …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (8/7)

It’s not particularly surprising that Jacob deGrom followed up a six inning outing against Washington with 6 1/3 innings against Tampa. His fastball was all over the place. In the first inning, one that saw him need 23 pitches to get through four batters, he 23 pitches and of those, the majority were fastballs that …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night

Oh, I’m sure I’ve mentioned it a time or two, but good grief is that Jacob deGrom changeup filthy. If I had that as my go to pitch in high school (by that I mean if I had his changeup as my fastball, with the movement and speed) I would have been All State and …

Score Four and One Home Run Ago: Mets Win!

When I was in high school, I thought my life could only be made complete with an official Dwight Gooden jersey. The jersey had to be the road grays, and of course it had to have that sweet Mets logo on the left sleeve. I won’t bore you with an ode to jerseys, so this …
