As predicted, the betting public is all over deGrom and the Mets in this one. With good reason anytime deGrom gets the ball I suppose but I look at this a little different.
Toronto just completed a stretch where they won 18 of 28 during a 28 games in 27 day stretch. That tells me a lot about the character of the team. They play a team that has next to no character.
Randal Grichuk and Travis Shaw are both batting .375 in eight at-bats apiece against deGrom. Grichuk has two solo homers against him. Caleb Joseph, Joe Panik and Jonathan Villar also have hit against deGrom.
I'll take the Jays and insurance against deGrom.
