2. Jacob deGrom

Coming in second, though many could argue he should lead this list, is Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Through two games started deGrom is 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 11 hits allowed, and 20 strikeouts in 13 innings.

Most notably, deGrom started the playoffs right against the Dodgers by shutting them out over seven sparkling innings. What was entire more impressive, however, was his gutty effort in Game 5 when his stuff was clearly on a down tick.

The 27-year old MLB All-Star reminded us all of what a throwback pitcher should look like – a guy who competes at the highest level when the game means the most. Scheduled to start Game 3 of the NLCS in Chicago, the Mets are setup perfectly.
