Chicago Cubs – NY Mets (M Stroman) Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 19:10

If you believe in patterns, then Quintana should fare well against the Mets in Queens on Thursday. Quintana has been oscillating between good and not-so-good starts basically all year, a trend that's resulted in a 5-4 record, 4.78 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 10 starts. He also walked two while fanning six. The southpaw struck out six but gave up too many extra-base hits, yielding three doubles and a two-run homer among his five hits allowed. Jose Quintana allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

Both have subpar strikeout rates, but who doesnt these days. They are looking to compete with older names, and it just might pan out with their rotation being as strong as it is. When healthy, Conforto is an excellent left-handed bat. Injuries have always derailed the plans for the Mets, but with a healthy lineup coming into the year, there is some excitement. We werent expecting the New York Mets to make many moves in the offseason, but they brought in Robinson Cano and Wilson Ramos. Cano is over the age of 35, coming off a PED suspension. He still can bring some value to the Mets, and the same goes for Jed Lowrie who they also brought in this offseason. Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo are the outfield options New York has decided to build around this year.

Seth Lugo blew leads in the eighth and ninth innings for the Mets to take the loss in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves. He now has a 2.48 ERA in relief. Lugo allowed one run in the eighth to tie the game at 2-2. Even so, he was left in for the ninth after the Mets scored a go-ahead run. He promptly gave up a two-run homer to one of the league's worst hitters, Charlie Culberson, to take the loss, which was his first of the season.

MLB Headlines

Matz has had an up and down career, and it will be interesting to see if he can build upon a pretty good 2018 season. New York has names like Jason Vargas, Seth Lugo, and Hector Santiago all battling out for the fifth spot, but Vargas is likely the name that comes out of it. Wheeler putting up these type of numbers makes this lineup go from good to great. He is another reason for the Mets to believe in a postseason run. Wheeler has all the talent in the world, and we might now be in the beginning stages of a longer sample size for him. Zack Wheeler has dealt with injuries early in his career, but 2018 was his breakout year. He had a 24% strikeout rate, and a 3.81 xFIP. With the offseason moves, and the emergence of Wheeler, there is a chance the Mets can make a run. If Matz can deliver as a fourth starter, this rotation could possibly jump up into top three contention. Wheeler threw 182 innings, which was his highest from 2014. Steven Matz had a decent run last season, boasting a 3.97 ERA, and averaging about a strikeout per inning.

The fourth loss in five games for the Mets came hours after pitching coach Dave Eiland and bullpen coach Chuck Hernandez were fired and replaced by Phil Regan and Ricky Bones, respectively. New York, which also added minor league pitching coordinator Jeremy Accardo to the big-league staff as a "pitching strategist," entered Thursday with the 11th-worst ERA in the majors (4.67) and the third-worst bullpen ERA (5.38).

He had 269 strikeouts in 217 innings, and yes we know he won just ten games. deGrom was easily the best pitcher in baseball last season, and the upside heading into 2019 is there again. He will be a Cy Young candidate, and this just kicks off the rotation. He pitched better than advertised, and of course this season he should boast better overall numbers. There were some talks that they could trade Thor in the offseason, but after coming to their senses, he will still be in New York. Jacob deGrom is coming off a fantastic season where he posted a 1.70 ERA. With a better offense and bullpen, deGrom might actually get some wins which people seem to care about. As long as the health is there for deGrom, he should push 200 innings and be well over a strikeout per inning. Thor is projected to have better strikeout stuff, and a lower ERA this season. Noah Syndergaard had a 3.03 ERA this past season, and averaged a strikeout per inning. Having the reigning Cy Young winner starting your rotation is never a bad way to head into the season.

Quintana has not had a great season but he owns a 3.96 SIERA, which indicates that his 4.29 ERA should show some positive regression soon. He's still striking batters out at a 25.2% rate and he's generating ground balls at a 44.7% rate as well. Despite the trends in this series favoring the over, I like the combined score to fall under the betting total tonight. Now we just need Lugo not to fall apart against Chicago's dangerous lineup but the Cubs do get a negative park adjustment hitting at Citi Field so we should be fine. Quintana will be able to neutralize the lefties in this Mets' lineup and work around the righties, thus suppressing tonight's run production.

"I think that our performance has shown that we can be better. "I think if you look at our performance, it's hard to say that we made a change to our coaching staff because we woke up with a new feeling in our stomach," first-year Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said during a press conference at Wrigley Field.
