Despite ace pitcher Jacob deGrom’s dominance, the New York Mets have struggled, and the star is beginning to get frustrated with it.
Star pitcher Jacob deGrom has been brilliant for the New York Mets. He has a National League-leading 1.52 ERA on the season, but he’s only 4-0 in his 11 starts. But, the team has struggled to a 26-26 record entering play on May 30.
They have been especially dreadful during deGrom’s recent starts. James Wagner of the New York Times gave some stats to that effect on his Twitter account. Over his last eight starts, the formerly long-haired pitcher has a 0.94 ERA. The team has won two of those games. Yikes.
An unpleasant indicator of the Mets struggles: Jacob deGrom, their best pitcher, has a 0.94 ERA over his past 8 starts (two were abbreviated). The team is 2-6 in those games.

deGrom, talking to Mike Puma of the New York Post said that he was frustrated with the losing, but not just during his starts. He’d like to see the team win more games in general.
