You know the drill when it comes to these meters. So let’s get right to the fascinating part of this one: There were two distinct groups of Mets pitchers—good and bad—over the past seven days. And the way they broke down alphabetically put them into an order in which there are green and red chunks of this meter and no variations from that pattern. These are the sorts of things that sound exciting when your team is very bad.
Let’s try to keep things a little more concise, too. Jerry Blevins, Chasen Bradford, and Jamie Callahan were part of the team’s fairly large 0.00 ERA club for the week. And Jacob deGrom had a 3.00 ERA to go along with 11 strikeouts in six innings in his lone start. Jeurys Familia? 0.00 ERA.
The best ERA among the group of Erik Goeddel, Robert Gsellman, and Matt Harvey belonged to Gsellman at 9.00. Harvey’s 11.25 looks pedestrian compared to Goeddel’s 54.00.
Seth Lugo and Kevin McGowan held up just fine for their part of the alphabet, though not everyone whose last name begins with M could say the same. Lugo had one very good start, and McGowan had two outings with a 0.00 ERA.
Back to the ugly: Rafael Montero’s 11.25 ERA was the best of the group that includes him, AJ Ramos, Jacob Rhame, and Hansel Robles. The rest of those stats were not pretty, not that Montero’s line was in the first place.
And we close with the good. Paul Sewald and Josh Smoker were both effective, though Sewald’s 2.70 ERA was a non-zero entity, unlike Smoker’s. And last but certainly not least, Noah Syndergaard threw one inning on Saturday night, a scoreless one that had no strikeouts or runs involved.
