2. Jacob deGrom, RHP, 26-Years Old

If Harvey is the No. 1 guy, then reigning NL Rookie of the Year, Jacob deGrom, is No. 1-A.

Thus far through 2015, it’s been deGrom who’s carried the mantle as the ace of the Mets staff. His 7-4 record, 2.42 ERA and 81 strikeouts in 78 innings has allowed Mets fans to point to deGrom as the man.

In reality, the Mets have two aces.

Just as Harvey showcases his arrogant, bulldog-like qualities, deGrom does the same in a very different manner. His qualities are more relatable to pitching genius.

Harvey has filthier stuff, there’s no question about that. His fastball touches 97, 98 miles per hour on a great night and his slider disappears from righties within a blink of an eye.

deGrom, on the other hand, is a masterpiece out there on that rubber.

His stuff is still superb, but the way he changes speeds and works the edges marvels everybody in the ballpark.

Having Harvey and deGrom as a one-two punch for many years to come is not only fantastic, it’s downright silly.
