I know hitting is a rhythm and the season so far has been choppy with the COVID pause and all the rainouts, but this team has to hit better with RISP. 

Too be honest McNeil, Lindor and Conforto are off to poor starts. Nimmo is the only regular with a great start.

Game should have been over by then. 

The lack of hitting with RISP is worrisome even in April.

Not sure if I’ve ever enjoyed watching a pitcher like Jake since Doc Gooden and Jake even better although Doc if he didn’t so drugs who knows what he could have been

It's ridiculous.  Historically in baseball, some of the best of all time had teams that would play better when they were on the mound.   They would get the guy 2 or 3 runs somehow, play good defense especially up the middle, and the great ones made it stand up.   Seaver, Koufax, Carlton come to mind.    I think deGrom would be doing the same if he was in the era of 25 complete games per season.   Even so, the Mets play putridly behind him, marring what has been a HOF career so far.

deGrom has Gooden stuff (when a last name begins lower case do you begin a sentence with a capital D?) but also pinpoint accuracy, and chess master like focus.    I don't know if anyone ever threw as hard with such accuracy and focus on every single pitch.   I'm starting to think that if I don't watch every single one of his starts I will regret it when his career is over.

* The good thing about shitty Mets teams, is I have been able to attend some GREAT deGrom September starts (the 9-11. Cy Young cementing performance a few years ago was one) by buying tickets behind home plate on StubHub for as little as $20-25.   Mets fans are missing something extraordinary by not packing the house each time he pitches.

Beast you are right if I miss a deGrom start I feel like I’m missing something historic. I’m definitely going to try and make more deGrom starts in person this year now that I’m fully vaccinated

And deGrom can hit!  Fantastic performance last night.  It was a piece of Met's history.  Jake is definitely worth the price of admission.
