While the Phillies are out of the running by a country mile this season, they at least aren’t the laughing stock of the MLB.
They have built a solid core of young pitchers to build a decent future rotation and have a couple bats that will do them well for years to come.
While Odubell Herrera and Makiel Franco couldn’t be more opposite at the dish, both are nice lineup fixtures for a future contending team.
They hope that Micky Moniak is a big piece of the puzzle in this regards as well, after investing the 1st overall selection in this past season’s draft on him coming out of high school.
Alex Asher takes the hill in just his 4th start of the year, and 10th overall of his young career. Across his first three starts, all coming in September, he’s allowed just 4 earned runs total across 16.2 innings pitched.
The 2012 4th round selection by Texas will face a team from New York that is looking to solidify a playoff spot and will be hungry for another win. Asher will look to add to his 1-0 record, currently carrying a 2.16 ERA and 0.96 WHIP.
New York Mets
The New York Mets are currently 8.5 games back of the division leading Washington Nationals, though have a decent leg up on the second NL Wildcard spot.
While the Mets are certainly led by the strength of their rotation, with superstars Noah Syndergaard and Jacob DeGrom leading the way, the bats in their lineup have certainly provided them adequate run support to have the second wildcard seat as of now.
Leading the charge is Yoenis Cespedes (as he has all season) with his 30 homers, 83 RBI and .287 average.
Noah Syndergaard came over from the Toronto Blue Jays in a deal that sent former Cy Young winner, RA Dickey, the other way.
This trade looks like absolute highway robbery now, as Syndergaard has turned into one of the game’s elite pitchers and the aging Dickey has yet to produce the career year at age-37 he recorded before departure.
Syndergaard has a 2.63 ERA and 210 strikeouts on the year, which are both team bests.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
With Syndergaard on the mound the Mets are almost always a favorite.
Their lineup is stronger than the Phillies, and while the Phillies don’t have a whole lot to play for besides experience for their young core, the Mets are in a playoff hunt and are hungry for every win they can get.
