Why can’t Mets fans have nice things? The team is rolling and playing their best baseball of the season. They are an MLB-best 20-6 at home. They just won three straight against the first-place Cubs. But unfortunately, it comes at the hands of Jacob deGrom dealing with yet another injury. This time it’s shoulder soreness and the Mets are going to have to be careful with his potential return. They need the best pitcher in the history of the game to be 100 percent for the stretch run as they look to be a major contender in the National League, holding a five-game division lead.
To talk about deGrom’s latest injury and the Mets’ hot streak, we bring you a new episode of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with Nelson Figueroa and me, featuring a chat with The Post’s Steve Serby, voicemails and emails from listeners and a trip to the Nelson Figueroa Spanish Academy.
Amazin’ But True Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- JACOB DEGROM: Should we be concerned with his latest shoulder injury? Should the Mets just put him on the IL and let him rest for a few weeks?
- SPECIAL TEAM: We get into how special this team has been to watch and why fans are and should be heading to Citi Field with the capacity going to 100 percent on Monday. We talk about meeting Alex Cohen in a suite at the game Tuesday.
Nelson Figueroa Spanish Academy: Figgie teaches me how to say “doubleheader,” “Father’s Day” and “Amazin’ But True.”

- KEVIN PILLAR 1-ON-1: Serby gives us insight into his interview with Pillar that is coming out in Sunday’s New York Post. He says this was in his top five all-time 1-on-1 interviews he has ever done.
