Sam Maxwell, Staff Writer:

I thought to myself that to go the cliche route: Harvey, Wright, Granderson…but Jacob deGrom continuing his awesome ways is as integral a part of how the Mets do this year as anything.

Is it fair to expect deGrom to be as dominant as he was the last 2-3 months of last season over a full year? Probably not. BUT he must not slump his sophomore year if the Mets are to contend.
