Home sweet home. The Mets have defined home-field advantage in 2021, owning a 26-12 record at Citi Field. They went out and won another series against the NL Central-leading Brewers this week. They continue finding unique ways to win, despite all the injuries and the likes of Corey Oswalt, Robert Stock and others filling holes in the rotation.
To talk about the latest Mets series win and look ahead to the final series before the All-Star break, we bring you a new episode of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with Nelson Figueroa and me. This episode features a special Citi eats segment and a chat with Figgie about his time pitching in Taiwan.
Amazin’ But True Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- SERIES WIN: Mets continue dominating at Citi Field no matter who they play. Jacob deGrom had a few bad pitches, but was great. Jose Peraza has a knack for clutch hits. Stock was effective. Tylor Megill looks like a veteran out there. Mets need to improve at getting runners home with less than two outs.
- CASTRO/CONFORTO: Miguel Castro not using his changeup as much. Since sticky stuff went away, Castro has not been good. Michael Conforto is in a major slump. If he keeps this up, it’s hard to see the Mets wanting to give him a long-term deal.
Citi Eats with Jake: I go through all of Citi Field’s food options in two minutes.
Five with Figgie: I ask Figgie about his time as a pitcher and a pitching coach in Taiwan.
