Why does my gut tell me to fear the worst about deGrom?

as much as I love seeing everything he does on the ball field, I am ok w him taking 3 strikes when batting and going back to the bench. No more stress on whatever is going on.

Bartolo Colon would do that in games where his team had a comfortable lead.  His at bats were adventures.

 

When BC did decide to 'hit', those ABs were incredibly fun to watch :)

Ron Darling offered some great perspective with his anecdote of Mel Stottlemyre teaching him how to throw a slider.  His first slider was a great one but his shoulder was killing him.  He concluded that some guys just aren't built to throw certain pitches and that certain pitches put tremendous strain on your body.

Great moment when the cameras caught a fan wearing a Haji the cat tshirt.   They asked Keith if he got royalties for the sale of each such shirt, and his response was "You bet your bippy!".   The crew and a million tv viewers cracked up at that one.

Despite the apparent good news on deGrom's shoulder I hope the Mets exercise some caution with him and push him back a start or two to give his arm some rest. He throws as hard as short relievers like Chapman but pitches many more innings.

deGrom to make his scheduled start today. My prediction-he comes out after 3 innings with gas pains. Actually I would prefer that to any further arm discomfort.

5 scoreless innings and blown no hitter in the outfield but Jake lower ms his ERA to 0.50. He walked 2 guys though very disappointing

His oh-fer 1 plummeted his batting average to .407, just 1 point above Ted William's 1941 mark.  Sad.

Is this unexpected run with the bench players carrying the load finally running out of steam?
