Marcus Stroman will finally show fans how good he is

Marcus Stroman talks a big game. After sitting out all of 2020, it’s time for him to remind everyone how good he is.

Stroman joined the Mets at the 2019 trade deadline and gave the club 11 starts. The results were good but not great. He was 4-2 with a 3.77 ERA—not quite what we were expecting.

Stroman has had an up-and-down career. In seasons with 15+ starts, his ERA has ranged from 3.09 up to 5.54. He’s at a career 3.76 ERA (lower than Trevor Bauer by the way) which has some curious as to why he is hyped up so much. Stroman is an excellent marketer but he is also a very good pitcher.

Certainly not the ace of this ball club, Stroman more than enough talent to make the Mets a contender. He logs a lot of innings and typically keeps the ball in the park. He’s a smart pitcher whose wisdom can help differentiate him from others.

There are some fans out there who simply don’t enjoy Stroman because of how outspoken he can be on social media. I get it. I don’t like loud people either. The mute button on social media is my best friend.
