Groundhog Day in Flushing?

By Nicholas Stix

Jacob deGrom just threw his 100th pitch, and induced a line drive that he caught, to complete seven shutout innings—and seven innings without a Mets run in support of his usual sterling effort. That’s how he can lead the league in ERA, while barely staying above water (5-4).

Mets announcer Gary Cohen said, “Groundhog Day.”

One or two starts ago, the Mets announcers would say that it was “like” Groundhog Day. They’ve since dropped the qualifiers.

Yes, but how about Nimmo's 3-run blast in the bottom of the 10th? I haven't had a favorite Met since R. A., Dickey was shipped to Toronto. But I do appreciate Nimmo's evident joy at playing baseball.
