Game Preview: Mets @ Yankees

The Mets will try to distract the world from the embarrassing weekend they have had so far by playing the rubber game against the Yankees last night. Things for the Mets started to go downhill after they won Friday’s game. Cespedes revealed to reporters that he needs a surgery with 8-10 months recovery time. The next day, the Mets front office and management were all on different pages with regards to the Cespedes injury. No one wanted to talk about the Syndergaard early exit outside of him having a dead arm. His early exit caused Lugo and Gsellman to both be unavailable which combined with the not yet final Familia trade left the Mets short handed. (We won’t even get into the details of the trade).

The game went all right until the 4th inning that put den Dekker all over the field booting balls on difficult catches and leading to a massive Yankee lead. It looked like the Yankees were going to steamroll the Mets with a score of 7-3 but the Mets were able to make 7-6 in the ninth leaving the tying run on third base.

With all of this craziness, it is nice to get back to sense and sensibility with Jacob deGrom. Jacob is 5-4 over 19 games and 123.1 innings with a 1.68 ERA (league leading), 2.33 FIP (league leading), 230 ERA+ (league leading) and 0.973 WHIP. In the month of July he has allowed 1 run over 16.0 innings from 9 hits, 2 walks and 15 K’s. In June he allowed 3 runs, 2 earned over 8.0 innings from 4 hits and 2 walks against the Yankees who have the following numbers against him:

  • Stanton 9-25, 2B, 4 HR, 3 BB
  • Gardner 4-14, HR, 2 BB

  • Judge 1-5, 2B, 2 BB

Masahiro Tanaka is 7-2 over 15 games and 83.1 innings with a 4.54 ERA, 4.91 FIP, 1.128 WHIP and 95 ERA+. Since coming off the DL in July he has allowed 5 runs in 10.2 innings from 12 hits and 3 walks. He pitched well against the Mets in June allowed 1 run over 5.0 innings from a homer but left the game due to an injury from running the bases. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
