New York Mets Players Continue To Amazingly Mirror Superhero Personas

Jacob deGrom – The deGrominator (Terminator)

Alright. So the Terminator technically isn’t a superhero. We know this.

Still, Jacob deGrom is the Terminator.

The deGrominator earned his nickname simply because of the beautiful fit. Aside from the wonderful talent he possesses, his grit and toughness exemplifies what the Terminator has in every single movie that came our way.

Remember the Terminator, the original? When Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character was looking for his target at the cop station, he did it in a very calm, calculating fashion.

Well, yeah…he did plow a vehicle through the building, but still, the point of his calm demeanor holds true.

This is what we constantly see from deGrom.

During the NLDS last year in Los Angeles, not once, but twice deGrom battled tooth and nail to defeat the Dodgers when he didn’t possess his best stuff.

He’s machine-like. deGrom gets the job done no matter the surroundings.
