Who Are The Top Left-Handed Pitchers After Matz?

Defense Matters, Just ask Juan Lagares

Juan Lagares has been spectacular this year in the outfield, plain and simple. I would just like to take this moment to acknowledge that our center fielder currently ranks 14th in the majors and 7th in the National League in wins above replacement (WAR).

Why Did Mets Go With Montero Instead Of Syndergaard?

Kevin Kernan of the NY Post believes the Mets chose the wrong pitching prospect to promote when they opted to name Rafael Montero the replacement for the injured Jacob deGrom instead of using the opportunity to usher in the MLB debut of Noah Syndergaard.
