They Won’t Admit It But Mets Regret Letting Stro Show & Fly Tai Go | NY Fumbled The Bag With Two Young, Potent MLBbros

They Won’t Admit It But Mets Regret Letting Stro Show & Fly Tai Go | NY Fumbled The Bag With Two Young, Potent MLBbros

Two MLBbro pitchers have dominated this season for their respective National League teams. Marcus Stroman and Taijuan Walker have stepped up significantly and have shown why they are among the best hurlers in the game. 

 

Just two years ago, these two were both playing for the New York Mets. Fast forward to 2023, and Stroman and Walker both have nine wins on the season and are putting up valid numbers to show that they mean business out there. And the Mets, who had championship expectations going into the season, have struggled. 

 

Mets Struggling Since Walker & Stro Show Left Town 

 

The Mets are fourth in the NL East and things could have looked a lot different if they hung onto Walker and Stroman, especially with how the former Mets starters have been pitching this year.


During that 2021 season, the two MLBbro’s were at the top of the win column for the Mets, with Stroman leading the way with 10 wins.

Mets Overpaid For Aging Superstar Arms

 

Yes the Mets went out and acquired nine-time all-star and two-time World Series champ Justin Verlander to pair up with his former teammate Max Scherzer. But the bros have had a better season so far, no question about that.

 

Fly Tai Walker Was Lights Out In May 

 

Taijuan Walker is leading his team in wins, and in June, he went 5-1 with a 1.50 ERA and 34 strikeouts.

 

Taijuan Walker Is Still Searching For His Philly Zone

 

Walker has certainly put up the numbers and show why he’s one of the best arms on the Phillies roster.

 

He’s on a path to set a career high in wins this season. Walker is only three wins away from tying his career high in wins, which he set last season playing for the Mets.

 

Walker has always been a competitor and has had what it takes to be one of the top pitchers in the league.

 

It will be exciting to see how he finishes the season and if we’ll get the opportunity to watch him out there on the mound come September.

 

Our other MLBbro, Marcus Stroman, has been a workhorse in his second season with the Cubs. This season, he’s already surpassed his win total from last year (6) and he’s tied for first on the team with nine wins this season.

 

Stroman has also put together an impressive season so far and he will appear in his second All-Star game this season.

 

Marcus Stroman Has Been Cy Young Caliber: Will He Be Traded To A Contender?  

 

On the season, Stroman has a 9-6 record with a 2.76 ERA, one of the best in the National League. We all know how exciting it is to watch Stroman on the mound and he is a player any team would love to have on their roster.

 

Stroman could also set a career-high in wins. His current career-high is 13, which he set back in 2017 with the Toronto Blue Jays.

And Stroman could find himself playing for another team that could contend for a playoff spot. He’s certainly proved his value this season.

 

Mets Could Use The Tandem Of Marcus Stroman & Taijuan Walker This Season

 

The Mets are struggling with injuries to high-priced free agents while plummeting down the NL East standings. The thing they need the most is some young, reliable arms who can win games and be available to carry workhorse loads every fifth day.

They had that just last season and now the youth is gone and the truth is that the Mets miscalculated and undervalued these magnificent hurlers. Let em’ walk right out the door.

 

How different would the Mets’ fortunes by with these guys in the fold?

 

Both Walker and Stroman have represented the Bro’s well this season and they aren’t done. Make sure to keep an eye on these live melanated arms throughout the season.

Pitcher Grant Anderson Is Doing The Job For Texas Rangers

Pitcher Grant Anderson Is Doing The Job For Texas Rangers

Texas Rangers rookie pitcher Grant Anderson was lights out in his recent relief appearance against the New York Yankees.

 

Anderson went two innings on June 24, allowing just one hit and striking out four. Though the Rangers fell to the Yankees 1-0, Anderson was in full control against New York.

 


He entered the game with one job, to hold the Yankees to one run, and he did just that.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Anderson entered the game and struck out the first batter he faced. He would then give up a single and followed up with back-to-back strikeouts to end the inning.

 

The next inning Anderson went one, two, three, striking out the last batter to end the inning.

 

This was a complete turnaround from his previous appearance on June 20 against the Chicago White Sox. In that game, he went one inning and allowed three runs on three hits and had two walks.

 

That was Anderson’s first time allowing more than two runs. While he is still in his first season, there will be some outings where things may not go his way. But it’s always how you bounce back from adversity and Anderson did that against the Yankees.


He quickly made a name for himself when he made his debut back on May 30 and made history for the Rangers organization. 

 

Anderson became the first pitcher in franchise history to strike out at least seven batters coming out of the bullpen in their debut.

 

Our very own Malik Wright was all over the story.

Through 10 appearances on the season, Anderson has a 1-1 record with a 3.60 ERA while striking out 17 and walking just five.

 

Anderson has a unique wind up as he gets ready to deliver a pitch. If you watch any of his outings, you’ll see how he brings that leg up and rocks back a little bit, and then has the three quarter arm slot.

 

And to make things better, he has a lot of life and movement on his pitches, which keeps hitters off balanced. 

 

The 26-year-old will certainly play a key role coming out of the bullpen for the Rangers as the season progresses.

 

Texas has been one of the hottest teams in baseball since and they have shown that they can be a contender to make a deep run in the postseason.

 

Anderson fits in quite well in the Rangers bullpen. He can come in and give you a good one to two innings of relief work. 

 

If he can continue to have outings like he did against the Yankees and in his debut against the Tigers, there’s no doubt he will see more action out there on the mound.

 

Since 2018, Anderson has worked his way through the minors and now his hard work is paying off and he’s making the most of his opportunity of pitching in the big leagues.

Marcus Stroman Meets The Mets At Wrigley Field | Stro Show Is The Walking Quality Start NY Could Use Right Now

Marcus Stroman Meets The Mets At Wrigley Field | Stro Show Is The Walking Quality Start NY Could Use Right Now

The Chicago Cubs welcomed the New York Mets to Wrigley Field to begin a three game set yesterday, with the Cubs taking the first game of the series, winning 7-2. However, the second game of the series is what we at MLBbro will be locked into, as our Melanated Mound Marauder, Marcus Stroman will face off against his former squad from Queens. 

 

 

Stroman, a Medford, Long Island native pitched 44 games in two seasons with his hometown team, compiling a 14-15 record, and a 3.39 ERA. On a staff that included two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Jacob deGrom and fellow MLBbro Taijuan Walker, Stro threw like the Ace of at times for the Mets, leading the league in starts in his 2021, while providing his usual Gold Glove caliber defense. Despite his efforts on the field, he was not rewarded by the front office with a new contract. 

This decision may have caused some tension- maybe a jab or two on social media at the time -but trust and believe our bro is at peace in the Windy City, it’s also showing through his performance on the field since joining the Cubs.

Stro has gotten off to a solid start to the season, pitching to the tune of a 3.04 ERA and 3-4 record. However, when you look deeper, you’ll see that he has pitched even better than the numbers indicate, being a model of consistency when he steps on the mound.

In his ten outings, Stro has eight quality starts, which is tied for first in MLB, while allowing no more than two runs. 

 

 

Stroman Has Pitched Against Mets Before

Tonight’s matchup will be Stro’s third career matchup vs the Mets. His first start against his old ballclub came last season, as he allowed only one hit and struck out six in 4.1 innings pitched. The Mets would go on to win that game 2-1. 

The Mets have been playing better baseball recently, coming into today’s game winning 6 of their last 10, but have struggled to get consistent hitting and pitching to start the season. Could this be great timing for a Stroman revenge game? Check out the Stro Show tonight and let’s find out!

Greene Machine Hunts First Win Against Record-Breaking Tampa Rays

Greene Machine Hunts First Win Against Record-Breaking Tampa Rays

After three starts, Hunter Greene is still in search of his first victory. The 23-year-old Greene Machine has collected three no decisions, and some may wonder when the first win of the season will come. He’s already for plenty off the field. 

 


No need to worry, Greene will get his first win soon and more will come as the season progresses.

 

In his rookie season, the MLBbro Rookie Pitcher of the Year made 24 starts and finished the season with a 5-13 record, 4.44 ERA and 164 strikeouts.

 

 

MLBbro 2022 Rookie Pitcher of the Year | Hunter Greene The K-Machine


He got off to a rough start his rookie year, but showed improvement during the season.

 

There’s no question that Greene is one of the hardest throwing hurlers in the game. And he has a promising future ahead of him.

 

While the numbers may not show, Greene still is a productive pitcher, who can dominate out there on the mound.

 

On the season, he has a 5.14 ERA through 14 innings of work with 23 strikeouts.

 

And let’s not forget the fact that he’s young and his arm is golden. He’s going to be in the league for a long time and he will continue to develop his game as his career progresses.

 

 

 


Though the season is still early, Greene’s next start will be his biggest test of the season.

 

He will go up against the Tampa Bay Rays, the hottest team in baseball. These are the moments that Greene lives for and he will certainly bring his A-game.

 

Can Greene dominate against the best team in baseball?

 

Tampa Bay has the best record in the league and have been must-see TV since the season started.

 

We have seen Green have dominant outings in his young career. The question is can he do it against the Rays?

Through 16 games, the Rays are one of the top hitting teams in the league,  batting  over .280.

 

Bottom line is this team knows how to hit and for Greene to be successful against the Rays, he’ll need to be effective not only with his fastball, but off speed too.

 

Greene is going to get his strikeouts, there’s no question about that. In his previous start against the defending champion Atlanta Braves, he struck out a season high 10 batters in six innings of work.

 


“It was great,” Greene told
mlb.com. “I’ve been working really hard on the days in between, and I feel like it came through today. So I’m very happy.”

 

In his start against the Braves, Atlanta put some good swings on the ball and that’s a big reason why they were able to secure the win.

 

And Greene did his part during that game, Atlanta just came ready to swing the bat.

 

“That’s also good hitting,” said manager David Bell. “I don’t want to take anything away from those kind of hits because they’re doing their job too against really good pitches. It could’ve gone even better for Hunter if he would’ve caught a break there. He was making the pitches, they made the swings.”

 

If Greene can have a similar outing against the Rays, he can definitely put himself in a position to pick up his first win of the season. And he’ll certainly need some help from his offense as well
