The 2017 New York Mets Rotation Could Be the Best in MLB History (ESNY Video)

By Nick Durst and Robby Sabo

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.

    In the last 2 years mets have played 136 games without Cespedes and their record is 66-70 without him. Yet in those same 2 years mets are 32 games over 500 with Cespedes in the 185 games he has started. Meaning Cespedes is by far the only real player on the team

    • Nicholas Durst

      This staff made 89 starts in 2015. In 2015, Matt Harvey made 29 starts. Jacob deGrom made 30 starts so yes they were there the whole year. Noah Syndergaard started the season in AAA and made 24 starts, Steven Matz made 6 and Zack Wheeler made 0. So it looks like you are the fool.

      This staff made 93 starts in 2016. In 2016, Steven Matz made 22 starts, Matt Harvey made 17, Jacob deGrom made 24, Noah Syndergaard made 30 and Zack Wheeler made 0.

      So incase you did not know, there are 162 games in the regular season and if you double that you get 324 games in the past 2 seasons. This rotation has only started 182 games in that span.

      So therefore, the rotation is very important. What is the Mets record in the 142 games without these 5 guys? Can’t be that great.

      • Nick

        moron if you are under 500 the first 15 starts then it doesn’t change the next 15 starts you fool

        • Nicholas Durst

          The only fool/moron here is you. You disregard the fact that the likes of Jon Niese and Rafael Montero and Logan Verrett and Sean Gilmartin made many starts the past two years. Of course Cespedes is great but it is irrelevant to the statement that the Mets pitching must be good for the Mets to succeed. We have yet to see these 5 pitchers pitch together, that is the whole point. Thanks for clicking the link and watching the video.

          • Nick

            Mets are 66-70 without cespedes meaning the pitching can’t even get the team to 500

          • Nick

            And if you take out cespedes protection Murphy mets dont beat the Cubs you sick lunatic

          • Nick

          • Nick

            Cespedes protection is why they pitched to Murphy if you take out cespedes and Murphy mets dont get past the dodgers or Cubs you lunatic

          • Nick

            Jon niese lost 1-0 on June 30 2015 he pitched better than any other met in the nlcs he only gave up 1 run so having the pitching means nothing mets gave up at least 2 runs in every nlcs game you moron harvey lost 2-1 to the Cubs on May of 2015 mets could not even win 1 game vs the Cubs without cespedes

          • Nick

            Mets had Degrom harvey colon and syndergard heathy and yet the team was 0-7 vs the cubs before cespedes arrived you lunatic

          • Nick

            Degrom had 7 wins last year because he didn’t get enough run support even though he pitched well why don’t you calculate 7 to 14 wins amongst 5 guys that means even if they have all 5 guys at their best that only guarantees 50- 60 wins

          • Nick

            Nothing to do with starters mets had healthy starters from april 26 through July 31 (Degrom syndergard harvey and colon) in 2015 yet the team was 10 games under 500 in that 3 month span before Cespedes arrived

      • Nick

        Fooli hey had 4 guys who pitched around 30 starts you fool meaning the pitching is not getting better than that yet the team was garbage without cespedes

      • Nick

        And what was their record when they had degrom harvey colon and syndergard ? That’s right 0-7 vs the Cubs so at their best and healthy they were garbage

      • Nick

        In case you don’t know if the first 140 games you are under 500 that means you are not a good team you fool

      • Nick

        Nothing to do with starters mets had healthy starters from april 26 through July 31 (Degrom syndergard harvey and colon) in 2015 yet the team was 10 games under 500 in that 3 month span before Cespedes arrived

      • Nick

        Why dont you make a cespedes video becuase without him the team has no chance you biased agenda driven nobody

  • Nick

    This is the most inaccurate fake propaganda mets healthy picthing was 0-7 vs the Cubs in 2015 before cespedes arrived you fool

    • Nicholas Durst

      In 2015, Matt Harvey made 29 starts. Jacob deGrom made 30 starts so yes they were there the whole year. Noah Syndergaard started the season in AAA and made 24 starts, Steven Matz made 6 and Zack Wheeler made 0. Clearly this current rotation was not pitching fully in 2015. So it looks like you are the fool.

        In the last 2 years mets have played 136 games without Cespedes and their record is 66-70 without him. Yet in those same 2 years mets are 32 games over 500 with Cespedes in the 185 games he has started. Meaning Cespedes is by far the only real player on the team
