Honorable Mentions

Carl Crawford: 0-10, 2 walks (BB), 5 strikeouts (K)

Cameron Maybin: 0-10, 1 BB, 1 K

Ryan Braun: 0-10, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 3 Ks

Mark Reynolds: 0-15, 3 Ks- this one is pretty embarrassing

Danny Espinosa: 0-11, 8 Ks- this one is the most embarrassing. Only put the ball in play three times.

Michael A. Taylor: 1-24, 1 BB, 13 Ks- In 2017, deGrom had a streak of seven consecutive strikeouts against Taylor. Ouch.

Jayson Werth: 1-15, 2 BBs, 1 RBI, 5 Ks

Ben Revere: 1-13, 2 Ks

Kurt Suzuki: 1-12, 3 Ks

Howie Kendrick: 2-26, 6 Ks- Am I the only one noticing a high Nationals frequency here?

Trevor Story: 0-10, 1 BB, 4 Ks

Javier Baez: 0-10, 1 BB, 6 Ks

Justin Upton: 3-14, 7 Ks

DJ LeMahieu: 3-17, 2 2Bs, 2 BBs, 1 RBI, 8 Ks

Ender Inciarte: 6-35, 2 2Bs, 2 BBs, 1 RBI, 8 Ks

Odubel Herrera: 7-34, 1 BB, 2 RBI, 9 Ks

In conclusion, Jacob deGrom is very good at what he does, and I’d like to go on the record as saying I believe the Mets should pay the man already. In the spirit of transparency, obviously, not all of the games brightest stars are putty in deGrom’s hands. Bryce Harper, Giancarlo Stanton, Anthony Rizzo, Christian Yelich and, of course, Adrian Gonzalez are just some of the names of those who have made the Mets Hercules appear human.

However, what deGrom is doing is special and should not be taken for granted by any Mets fan. We’re witnessing the prime of one of the most elite, spectacular and remarkable pitchers in this organizations history. Appreciate it, Mets fans. Every five games, we can all take pride in knowing that one of baseball’s brightest stars dons the orange and blue.
