On Tuesday night Jacob deGrom had yet another not so great start.
It was his second bad start in a row, which has obviously started to concern fans. DeGrom had become our ace this season. When he was on the mound, we didn’t have to worry much about the other team scoring. But the last two times he’s started, this wasn’t the case at all.
SNY cut to a shot in the dugout of manager Terry Collins with his arm around a clearly upset deGrom. Collins is clearly concerned, and wanted to talk with his current ace about what’s going on.
But, of course, we all had to have a little fun too, to make ourselves feel a bit better.
There were a couple of references to parents telling their children that they’re getting a divorce:
Collins needing to be fired also came up… a lot:
We know that Ray Ramirez must always make an appearance:
And, finally, naturally, some fans got a bit political:
Is it time to be concerned about deGrom? I mean, I am. He hasn’t looked like himself in his last two starts. And please don’t sit here and say “it’s only been two starts, give the guy a break.” No. He’s not himself on the mound, at all. Twice in a row.
It’s no longer “too early in the season.” We’re in June. We need to shape up, and we can’t have our ace out there pitching like this.
But, Mets fans, let’s continue to try and have a bit of fun within the midst of all of this. Thanks for the laughs from the captions above. Maybe one day these laughs can come from happiness rather than from concealing our sadness.
