He’s started at least 31 games each season, has double-digit victories in each year, and has provided the Mets a durable, rubber-arm every fifth day on the mound.

Spin Rate On Seth Lugo’s Curveball Is Better Than Anybody’s

Since the time Noah Syndergaard first appeared on the mound for the Mets, we have constantly heard how he throws more 100 MPH fastballs than anybody in the sport.  He is repeating it all over again as fans stare in awe at the radar gun readings with each fastball Syndergaard unleashes.  Fact is when it […]

His numbers since the trade that brought him over from Cincinnati are cringe-worthy; a stat line of .176/.255/.289 with four home runs, 11 runs batted in, 14 walks, and […]
