Jacob deGrom dominates, Mets’ bullpen melts down to start the season

All of this might sound familiar: Jacob deGrom was great, the Mets wasted significant opportunities at the plate, and the Mets’ bullpen blew the game. deGrom sat at 100 miles per hour, and while he relied heavily on the fastball and didn’t look entirely sharp, he was more than good enough to keep the Phillies off the board in his six innings of work. To be fair, he got a little help from Kevin Pillar and Jeff McNeil in the bottom of the first, as those two combined to throw out Rhys Hoskins—who came very close to hitting a home run—as he tried to leg out a triple.

Mets lose season opener to Phillies as bullpen ruins Jacob deGrom's gem

PHILADELPHIA — The Mets had to wait four extra days for their first game of the season. They’ll have to wait at least one more for their first win. For all that is different about these Mets under new owner Steve Cohen, their new era began with the same major themes from the recent past: Jacob deGrom absolutely dominating, the bullpen absolutely not, the lineup providing him a modicum of support and the defense not helping when it matters most.

deGrom's sharp start thwarted by bullpen

PHILADELPHIA -- All the pieces were in place as the Mets had drawn them up. Jacob deGrom for six innings, then three more from a revamped bullpen to close out Opening Day. In manager Luis Rojas’ eyes, the plan was sound; the plan made sense; the plan would keep deGrom healthy and strong at the outset of the season. So even when deGrom veered off-script, performing so well that he completed his six innings on only 77 pitches, Rojas chose not to stray from it.

NY Mets: Three most disappointing sluggers in team history

The New York Mets have always been known to have some pretty good arms come up through their farm system. And when it comes to those arms, they more often than not, seem to draft pretty well. Over the years the Mets have been blessed with a wealth of pitching, but when it comes to the offensive side of the game, the well has not been as plentiful.

How the Mets Rebuilt Their Analytics Department

Steve Cohen is not Fred Wilpon and we saw evidence of that on Wednesday night when the Mets signed Francisco Lindor to an extension. However, there have been things going on behind the scenes that also showed why he was not another Wilpon. Arguably, the most notable change is the team’s change in their organizational infrastructure. My colleague, Doug, showed how the Mets overhauled their player development department but the other department that was lacking prior to Cohen was analytics.

Mets announce Opening Day lineup

J.D. Davis - 3B Jeff McNeil - 2B James McCann - C Brandon Nimmo - LF Jacob deGrom - P The lineup is slightly different from what fans would have seen on Thursday, which is a result of Philadelphia starting the left-handed Mat Moore. Instead of leading off with Nimmo, as they will throughout most of the season, the club is rolling with Kevin Pillar in center field and in the leadoff spot. Nimmo will bat eighth, ahead of the pitcher deGrom. With Pillar in the lineup, Dominic Smith will be on the bench tonight.
