To me, another disappointing loss by the Mets as they got swept by the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley on Thursday night. Still, Pete Alonso got them on the board with a big two-run home run. It appears that Alonso is going to hit a lot of home runs again in 2021, even if offense is down as you look around the league.
On Friday night, Jacob deGrom came out and did his thing to the tune of a career-high 15 strikeouts, and the Mets got a victory.
Without a doubt, this is the definition of a ‘stopper’.
