I don't watch a lot of games and when I do, mostly mets. I'd not seen him pitch before, at least, not really sat and watched him. The guy looks too wild to me, was it just today, cause on the year, 1.6 walks per 9 is very good, but he was bouncing balls off the dirt, at least 4 times tonight and his motion looks jerkey and the foot not touching the ground thing, clever, but, that can't help his control.

I get that his stuff is hard to hit. I totally see that. He's got a nasty slider that bends and he can fool hitters, but he looks like a 4 walks per 9 innings type of pitcher to me, not 1.6. Do umps give him calls he doesn't deserve a lot? Was he just off today?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

Guys (Michael Cuddyer) were swinging at those balls in the dirt. I think that says everything that needs to be said.
