Nick Durst of Elite Sports NY dives deep into why the New York Mets starting rotation could be the best group in MLB history, via ESNY Video.
Listen up kids: These 2017 New York Mets are no joke. More specifically, this starting rotation is no joke. In fact, it’s flat-out ridiculous.
We know Noah Syndergaard is the lead horse. Thanks to his sparkling 2016 MLB season, Thor enters the 2017 campaign as the hands-down ace.
Jacob deGrom is no slouch, though. Since he arrived in Flushing a few years ago, he’s been the Mets most consistent hurler. He’s been clutch and ridiculously filthy, especially when it came to the all-star game couple years back.
With 2016 out of the way, a season that saw the massive innings pile up on guys like deGrom and Matt Harvey, this seems to the be the prime summer for Sandy Alderson’s club to shine.
Speaking of the Dark Knight, he is healthy. And although the entire spring has been rough, he’s coming off a solid start. Steven Matz is dealing with some elbow soreness, but, honestly, when is he not hurt?
Anyway, make sure to check out the video above as ESNY’s Nick Durst explains to us why this 2017 New York Mets starting rotation could wind up as the best in MLB history.
