Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom. Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer.
Are you kidding me?
Mets followers are drooling over the brand new high of their beginning rotation. Two of the best pitchers of our era and arguably ever….will don the identical orange and blue uniform. It nonetheless doesn’t really feel actual. Steven Matz’s agent may get a statue outdoors Citi Area. He made Steve Cohen mad…to the purpose that he, Billy Eppler and the entrance workplace went out and signed Starling Marte, Mark Canha and Eduardo Escobar — all in a 24 hour span — after which they went out and bought Mad Max. Unbelievable.

Amazin’ However True’ Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- SCHERZER: This can be a transfer meaning the Mets are going for championships. He has been sturdy his total profession and has persistently been good. Regardless of his age, he has not regressed in any respect. Scherzer and deGrom pitching 4 video games in playoff sequence could possibly be particular. Mets followers are rightfully excited as they need to be. They don’t seem to be achieved but both. They may get one other beginning pitcher, bullpen assist and some extra bats.
- MARS: Have wished Starling Marte right here for years. He offers the Mets a flexible participant that may steal bases and play an excellent heart subject. They will now transfer Brandon Nimmo to a nook outfield spot.
- CANHA / ESCOBAR: Nice depth additions and Escobar coming off a profession yr. They signed him for a number of million greater than what they bought Jason Vargas for. That might end up being a steal.
