The Mets are now a Significant League-very best 13-5 this year after the acquire above the Cardinals. But they have to have deGrom back again, balanced and paired with Max Scherzer to be a really serious Globe Collection contender. And it appears points are on a very good observe for the two-time Cy Younger Award winner.
