New York Mets
The Mets won last night but that was behind Jacob DeGrom. They aren’t a good ball club when they aren’t starting an elite pitcher and will be hard-pressed to win until DeFlow gets back up on the mound.
Bob Gsellman has struggled since his good start to the season, which is basically to say since May. He has an ERA approaching 6.00; opponents hitting .290 against him and the Mets have lost each of his last five starts.
It’s amazing just how disgusting the Nats’ lineup is, though.
Daniel Murphy was the only guy in last night’s starting lineup who started on Opening Day for Washington. The Nats have suffered so many injuries that they are just trying to get guys back to the playoffs.
But how you enter the postseason in that sort of mindset and then beat the Cubs in beyond me; and that’s if most of their guys even get healthy.
That starting pitching is still pretty good, though. Gio Gonzalez has a 2.39 ERA in 25 starts. And while the Mets haven’t won behind Gsellman in quite some time, the Nats do behind Gio.
They have won his last five and Gonzalez is 12-5 himself.
