CAN I BITCH ABOUT THE YOUNG MET PITCHING "STUDS" IN THIS POST PLEASE ALPHONSO?..THANK YOU...I KNEW YOU WOULD LET ME....OK.....ARE THEY ALL YOUNG?..YES!...DO THEY ALL HAVE REALLY IMPRESSIVE STUFF?...YES!....DO THEY ALL LIGHT UP THE RADAR GUN?...YES!.....AND FINALLY.....ARE THEY ALL RIDICULOUSLY OVER HYPED BY THE NEW YORK MEDIA AND ALL MET FANS, AND HAVE BEEN FOR ROUGHLY 5 MONTHS???? THE ANSWER TO THAT IS A RESOUNDING....YES! YES! YES! AND,YES!!!! I MEAN, HARVEY PITCHES LAST NIGHT, AND WAS GOOD....FINAL LINE? 6 INNINGS 3 EARNED RUNS- GOOD!...BUT WITH ALL THE HYPE INVOLVED WITH THESE MET PITCHERS, YOU WOULD THINK THEY HAVE 4 SANDY KOUFAX'S PITCHING EVERY NIGHT! ....NOW SYNDERGAARD HAS REAL GOOD STUFF TOO....BUT HOW COULD ANY GUY WHO HAS A 1-5 WITH A WELL OVER 5.00 ERA ON THE ROAD, BE CONSIDERED A SANDY KOUFAX-LIKE "STUD"???? ....THEY CAN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT PITCHING HIM ON THE ROAD!...HE WILL LOSE!.... THE LEFTY, MATZ, HAS BARELY PITCHED THIS SEASON, DOES HIS STUFF LOOK GOOD?...YES....BUT HE JUST PITCHED AGAINST L.A. AND THE LINE? 5 INNINGS 3 EARNED RUNS- OK! ....BUT FAR, FAR, FAR, FROM SANDY KOUFAX "STUD" STATUS.... DEGROM HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING, AND HILARIOUSLY, WAS THE ONLY MET PITCHER WHO WAS CALLED UP WITH VERY LITTLE HYPE!...IT WAS LIKE THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW EXCELLENT HE WOULD BE! I ALSO REMEMBER ONE OF MY FAVORITE YANKEE GAMES OF THE YEAR WHEN DEGROM PITCHED AGAINST US. AT THAT TIME, NO TEAM IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE COULD SEEM TO TOUCH HIM ALL SEASON.... THEN....BING! BANG! BOOM! THE YANKEES WERE HITTING LASERS OFF DEGROM! EVEN THE OUTS WERE LOUD! LETS FAST FORWARD TO SYNDERGAARD PITCHING AGAINST THE YANKEES.... BANG! BING! I DON'T REMEMBER THE EXACT PITCHING LINE, BUT IT WAS TO THE TUNE OF 6 INNINGS 4 OR 5 RUNS.........ALL I AM TRYING TO POINT OUT IS....PITCHING IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE AND PITCHING IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE IS 2 DIFFERENT WORLDS. NOW MORE THAN EVER. TAKE ANY N.L. PITCHER AND TACK ON 1.5 TO 2 MORE RUNS TO HIS E.R.A PER GAME IF HE PITCHES IN THE A.L...NO DOUBT....TAKE THOSE 2.40 AND 3.10 E.R.A.'s THE "STUDS" HAVE, AND TURN THEM INTO 3.90 AND 5.10 THAT THEY WOULD INEVITABLY BE IN THE A.L. AND GUESS WHAT?....THEY WONT HOLD SUCH A "STUD" STATUS ANYMORE, NOW WILL THEY?
