|New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is 7-1 away in his career team-starts in September. He is also 7-2 against NL East opponents this season. Thor is also strong KW form with 16 Ks and 3 BBs in his last three starts. Judging from here it looks like all Thunder and Lighting this afternoon.|
September To Remember
Like our waistlines after a tasty Labor Day barbeque, MLB rosters expand to accommodate September, the final month of the season. And as College Football and the NFL barge onto the scene, MLB pitchers take the final spotlight in hopes of leading their teams on to the playoff trail. The question is which ones can we count on and which ones figure to be candidates for offseason Weight Watchers meetings? We do know this much for sure… Washington hurler Steven Strasburg has been solid gold in September the past three seasons going 11-1 in his team-starts, including 5-0 at home.
