From Baseball Primer’s Sam M:
“If you had told me that at the All-Star Break:
Pete Alonso would have 30 home runs and a 1.006 OPS;
Jeff McNeil would be leading all of baseball with a .349 average;
deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz, and Wheeler would have combined for 70 starts and 425 IP;
I would have told you the Mets would have a comfortable lead in the National League East.
Um . . . not so much. This is not a baseball team. It’s an Irwin Allen disaster movie from the 70s.”
