Jacob DeGrom and the Texas Rangers Win the World Series

2 Nov

injured almost the entire year, actually deGrom did very little to help the Rangers win it all. But hey, the former Mets ace did state very clearly, that part of the reason he left NY for Texas so quick was to be with a ‘winning’ organization. And now that he’s already gotten a ring, his reasoning has proven to be very profound.

That said, because of the way deGrom left the Mets and still being sore over Max Schezer’s playoff failings against the Padres in the playoffs last year, I was rooting for the D’Backs to win (not that I watched a single game) he championship in a World Series that no one outside of Arizona and Texas truly cared about. Either way, congrats to the Rangers on earning their first trophy.

The Brandon Nimmo Catch Was Not The Mets G.O.A.T.

While Brandon Nimmo’s catch from last night’s Dodgers game should definitely make the Top 10 list when it comes to the Mets. I can quickly state that the Agee and Swoboda catches during the 1969 World Series, the Endy Chavez catch to rob a homer from Scott Rolen in the 2006 NLCS and the Beltran catch on top of that old hill in Houston were all better. And that’s just off the top of my head.

Jacob deGrom To Miss 4 Weeks with Shoulder Tightness

1 Apr


Jacob deGrom’s season is already on hold. The ace right-hander is headed to the injured list for an extended stretch, after an MRI exam on Friday revealed a stress reaction on his right scapula. DeGrom, according to general manager Billy Eppler, will discontinue throwing for up to four weeks, after which he will have to build up to pitch.

The diagnosis came less than a week before the Mets are scheduled to open their season, on Thursday in Washington. The vaunted 1-2 punch of deGrom-Max Scherzer will have to wait.

This is why I never got too excited about the vaunted 1-2 punch of degrom and Scherzer, because deGrom is just so injury-prone at this point. Now with this news I wouldn’t expected deGrom to be back before the All-Star break, if at all.
