New York Mets
New York is only a few games under .500 but are they really in the hunt. They definitely have enough pitching to go on a run but the lineup is still very light. Pete Alonso has been amazing this season with 34 homers already. At the same time you can make a case that Jeff McNeil is having just as good a season, he is hitting .331 and puts the ball in play. They are a nucleus, not the team though.
After a couple of relief appearances Steven Matz has looked a lot better of late. He is coming off a complete game shutout against Pittsburgh where he only needed 99 pitches. That kind of efficiency is especially impressive. Facing the Pirates again should have him at peak confidence for this start.
The Pirates broke a long losing streak in their recent series against the Reds but they are not playing good ball at all right now. Josh Bell has been stuck on 27 homers since July 5th and the offense just does not do much without him. Since then he has only collected 4 RBIs and pitchers have been easily navigating around him. Starling Marte is building a career year in terms of power and production but it is not enough.
All season long Trevor Williams has been looking for the effectiveness of last season. It might be a simple way of looking at it but his home and hit rates are up. Pittsburgh did not wind up trading off relief pieces at the deadline so that group is intact if there are leads to protect. There have not been many lately.
