Jacob deGrom Hurt Completely Overshadows Win

Yes, the Mets won this game 5-4 with a big comeback and go-ahead hit from Andres Gimenez off Hector Neris in the top of the ninth. With the Mets postseason hopes on life support, they could use this win and many others.

However, truth be told, the only thing that mattered anymore was Jacob deGrom winning his third straight Cy Young.

It’s a tight race between deGrom, Trevor Bauer, and Yu Darvish with deGrom being in the lead entering this start. That’s not the case anymore.

In the second, a clearly affected deGrom allowed three runs, and he’d go talk to Jeremy Hefner and the trainer in the dugout. After that conversation, he was pulled from the game with what was described as a hamstring spasm.

At the moment, deGrom’s ERA ballooned to 2.09. Due to the nature of hamstring injuries, no one can be quite sure when he can realistically pitch again and/or return to form.

So yes, it’s obviously great the Mets won. We all hope they go on the insane hot streak they need to make the postseason. However, this is all a pipe dream.

For a while, we’ve known this season was about deGrom winning the Cy Young, and that’s not happening anymore. That also hurts his future Hall of Fame chances.

In the end, today was a terrible day and not much else of what happened today really matters. Much like most of 2020, something good is accompanied by something far worse which completely overshadowed it.

    Let’s see….where do we start tonight?

    “”””Yes, the Mets won this game 5-4 with a big comeback and go-ahead homer from Andres Gimenez off Hector Neris in the top of the ninth. …”

    Gimenez singled in the ninth driving in Rosario to salvage a 1 for 4 night with three weak grounders.

    The only Met home run of the night was a two run shot by JD Davis in the sixth.

    JD scored the Mets first one in the 4th when he scored after a double.

    He drove in the only other Mets run with a double in the 8th, driving in Conforto and tying the game.

    JD went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs, a homer and two doubles. Nimmo had two hits and one double. No one else had an extra base hit or more that one hit.

    Oh, Wacha, who you despise, came in after Jake left down 0-4 and threw 4 scoreless innings.

    A loss would have virtually eliminated the Mets. Now they are two out of the wild card. Finishing 8-3 almost definitely gets the second wild card, and even 7-4 gives us a good shot. We win tomorrow, we could possibly go 6-4 and still snag the second wildcard, and four of those are against the woeful Nats. There is exciting baseball left.

    “””However, truth be told, the only thing that mattered anymore was Jacob deGrom winning his third straight Cy Young.””

    Seriously, I have asked you many times….are you even a Mets fan? I give zero fux about individual awards, aside from it makes it harder for us to hold on to the player. I’ll be pulling against deGrom, maybe Cohen can get him to renegotiate and get rid of that 2022 optout.

    It’s the Mets, remember? The Mets. Wacha and JD saved the season for at least a few more games. It’s worth giving them a nod in the dungeon you have them in.

      “I’ll be pulling against deGrom.”

      That just about sums it about you.

        If you are a fan of a team, pulling for individual awards is like applauding your separated wife’s boob job. As much as I like Jake, and who doesn’t, him saying he might sit out pennant race games if he wasn’t given a long term big bucks contract about summed it up for me, in your words.

        If the Mets had jumped out to a 12-0 lead last night, Jake should have been pulled after two innings, and slated to get three more starts in the Mets playoff push.

        But that would NEVER happen, right? He has to get his “win”……

        You have gotten your feet so tangled in wearing special caps and the CitiField bathroom facilities which you and yours are entitled and Dom being sad about society that you forget that this is a team sport and the goal is a championship.

          Rooting for players means you don’t want the team to win makes sense only to you
