The New York Mets are finally set to begin their 2021 season Monday as the travel to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies in an NL East showdown.
New York Mets
The Mets saw their first series of the year against the Nationals cancelled due to COVID-19. Under new leadership and with new superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor in the blue and orange, the Mets are expected to be contenders following a 26-34 season last year.
Jacob DeGrom, arguably baseball’s most dominant pitcher, takes the hill Monday for New York. He was impressive yet again in 2020, posting a 2.38 ERA and an impressive 0.98 WHIP complemented by a 4-2 record in 12 starts spread across 68 innings. In 17 career starts against the Phillies, DeGrom is 8-1 with an ERA of under 2.50.
Despite DeGrom’s efforts, the Mets were 22nd in ERA last season as a pitching staff. They were 13th in runs scored largely thanks to former rookie of the year, Pete Alonso. He homered 16 times in 57 games.
The Phillies shocked some folks around baseball with a three-game sweep of the reigning division champion Atlanta Braves. It was a flip from last season in the three games. The Phillies were fifth last year in runs scored, but scored just nine runs through three games. On the contrary, the pitching staff that ranked 27th in ERA last year held the Braves hitters throughout the series.
Matt Moore gets the starting call for the Phillies. Moore has made only two starts since 2018 as he’s battled significant injuries during that stretch. He’s 0-3 in his career against the Mets and is long removed from his prime days with the Rays.
Hitting wise, Rhys Hoskins will look to continue his success against the Mets. Last season, the first baseman Rhys Hoskins drove in 7 runs against the Mets. He hit 10 home runs last year.

The Mets are the simple play here in what should be a lopsided matchup. DeGrom versus Moore is about as uneven of a pitching matchup as you can find. The Phillies winning streak comes to an end Monday.
