2. Harvey & deGrom
As previously mentioned, San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner was breathtaking last Fall.
The Mets possibly own two Mad-Bum’s.
Although it’s almost impossible to duplicate what the burly lefty did last season, the Mets two-aces, Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, seem to possess the exact temperament needed to thrive in those sticky situations.
Harvey’s competitiveness is without argument. The only thing people worry about with him is that he’s almost too competitive. While he’s not putting up vintage Harvey stats this season, his sub-3 ERA is still ace like.
deGrom just showed the world his stuff in the 2015 MLB All-Star Game by striking out the side. He’s another beyond competitive pitcher who should thrive while in the clutch.
Having not one, but two aces at the top of the rotation is a fantastic recipe for down-the-stretch success.
