The New York Mets went to the World Series in 2015. That was really cool. Go Royals. But there is a realistic theory of peaking too early which is clearly what happened to these pitchers. They had success extremely early and took their foot off the gas pedal. See Fatt Harvey.
Syndergaard was an all-star in 2016 and deGrom is Rookie of the Year winner. “What have you done for me lately?” -me, just now.
Disclaimer: I started writing this and then fell into one of my super cute depression hibernations and didn’t finish this article until today. When I wrote that these pitchers were overrated, it was BEFORE deGrom decided to throw a 1 run game with 13 fucking strikeouts. What are you doing, guy? You’re making me look bad in front of my internet friends. Plz suck like we agreed upon.
