How sweet it is to be asking a question like this.
I'm not even sure the Mets thought the Mets would be here.
But, alas. Here we are. So let's figure out where to go next.
Game 1 has to go to Jacob deGrom.
He's gritty when he doesn't have his stuff, and when he does, he's just downright nasty.
Sounds like an ace to me
Game 2 is a little bit debatable, but I'm giving it to Matt Harvey over Noah Syndergaard.
If Harvey's got Game 2, Syndergaard is getting Game 3, no question about it.
I just don't think I'm ready to give rookie Steven Matz a start in the World Series.
If it's a must-win game, I'd rather see deGrom go out there on short rest, honestly.
My gut is that they will let Matz give it a go in Game 4 to avoid rushing deGrom's recovery. They'll have the ageless Bartolo Colon (who actually got the win in relief of Matz in Game 4 of the NLCS) ready to go at a moment's notice.
What do you think? Do I have the right idea about the Mets' rotation or would you like to give Matz the reins in Game 4?
