New York Mets’ young starters simply might be wearing down | FOX Sports

Are they worn down or is it too much rest? It seems to me they aren’t as sharp with the extra rest. But that’s just me.

In Surprise Move, Mets Pick Matt Harvey to Start in Game 1 of World Series

Early Saturday, Mets Manager Terry Collins settled on his World Series starting rotation. He explained to his pitchers the reasoning behind his decision, then pulled his Game 1 starter in for a gut check.

Collins asked, “Are you ready for it?”

Matt Harvey replied, “Damn right.”

In a surprising move, Harvey will take the mound Tuesday night at Kansas City, followed by Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz. Collins said the rotation would stay on course for a second turn if the series extended past four games.

“Matt was going to pitch next,” Collins said, referring to Harvey’s place in the rotation during the National League Championship Series. “So I didn’t want to give him five more extra days if I can help it.”

Every eye in the Mets universe turns to Jacob deGrom | New York Post

Matt who?

“We’ve got our horse going,” Lucas Duda said of deGrom.

Travis d’Arnaud, who will catch deGrom Thursday, sounded extremely confident in the right-hander.

“It’s because of what he’s done since the day he’s been here,” d’Arnaud said of the 2014 Rookie of the Year. “He’s got the perfect personality for this moment. He’s a simple man who likes to keep things simple and just go out there and pitch. He’s been stellar for us all year.”
