Is deGrom Now the Ace for Mets? Buster’s Answer [AUDIO]
At the end of the season, it was Jacob deGrom at the top of the pitching depth chart for the Mets, but is that going to be the same in 2015?
"That’s an interesting question," said ESPN's Buster Olney, to "Armen and Levack" on 104.5 The Team. "My guess is that Harvey is going to get the ball in game one because it matters to him.
"From everything I’ve heard, and being around the Mets the whole month of October, I don’t think deGrom really cares. I think it means more to Matt that he’s anointed in that."
Harvey was surrounded by controversy once again this season with his agent Scott Boras being vocal about his pitch count in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, which heavily dictated when and where he pitched in the month of September.
But by April? Buster says everything should be back to normal.
"You’ll see Harvey in game one, deGrom in game two and Syndergaard in game three and probably getting hit."
