Season Record: 6-3, 2nd NL East
Week in the Review: Swept 3-game series at Miami, lose 2 out of 3 at home vs Nationals
Dude of the week: Jacob deGrom (7 IP, 0 ER, 14 K, BB; 1-3 HR vs Marlins)
Dud of the week: Zack Wheeler (4.2 IP, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 K, 7 BB vs Nationals)
Snapshot: After a nice start to the season at Washington, the Mets continued their road trip by sweeping the Marlins before returning to Queens where the Nationals took 2 of the 3 in their home opening series. Ace Jacob deGrom continuing to show why he is the best pitcher in baseball with another scoreless quality outing. Not only has he yet to give up an earned this season, he even managed to hit a homerun to help his own cause. Noah Syndergaard only gave up 1 run in his 1st quality start of the season, however once again, he didn't get any run support resulting in his 1st loss at home in 8 starts. Rookie Pete Alonso continues his torrid start to the season leading the team in hits, doubles, home runs and rbi's. Michael Conforto is also having a nice season with .351 BA and ops over 1.000. New addition Wilson Ramos is killing it .400/.419/.433. Edwin Diaz has 4 saves in the 6 victories with a .154 BAA. Outside of Steven Matz, the backend of the rotation is still struggling and the middle relief is sketchy as bets so far. The Mets are second in what experts are calling the deepest division in MLB. If they are to keep pace, they are going to need to be consistent as the season begins to open up.
Due up: 4/9, 4/10 at home vs Twins, 4/11-4/14 at Atlanta
What to Watch for: Mets schedule gets tougher with Acuna of the Braves coming up, and some new rich guy named Bryce for the Phillies waiting on deck. This stretch will be an early test to see if this team is legit.
