Hope is a beautiful thing, a wonderful thing and the New York Mets have just that as they head to the 2021 Major League Baseball Season.
With stars like Michael Conforto, Pete Alonso, Brandon Nimmo, Jacob deGrom to only name a few the excitement is high for the 2021 squad and then the team has added a proven leader and high energy guy in Francisco Lindor to the squad fans are more excited than ever for the start of Spring.
The season will not be an easy one as the National League will be tough as always, everyone has improved from Philadelphia to Atlanta, but the Mets showed a ton of spunk and energy all throughout Spring Training which points to what fans hope to be a positive 2021 Season.
The quest for the World Series starts on Thursday, as the Mets will go up against a team that knows how it feels to win the trophy in the Washington Nationals. New York will be traveling to Washington D.C. for what will be a three-game series.
To start the 2021 Major League Baseball season, it will be a battle of the aces between the Mets and Nationals as Jacob deGrom takes on Max Scherzer. For deGrom he will start his quest for a third National League Cy Young Award in addition to seeing if he can help his team win the World Series.
During the 2019-20 season, deGrom held a 2.42 ERA to go along with 359 strikeouts. Mets fans cannot forget Scherzer, who has given them nightmares in his time as a Nationals starter. In ‘Mad Max’s’ 2019-20 season the starter has been able to strike out 335 batters while having a 3.15 ERA. This maybe the final season for Scherzer in a Nationals uniform, as the pitcher is in the final year of his contract. Scherzer will be hungry as always to show not only the Nationals, but any MLB team that he still ranks as one of the League’s best pitchers.
