Stop us if you've heard this one before: Jacob deGrom dominated and the Mets didn't score.
DeGrom, who fired 7.0 innings of one-run ball against the Braves in Atlanta (and could've easily pitched the eighth) during Wednesday's 2-0 loss, continues to be the best pitcher in the league. And the Mets continue to do nothing to support him.
Todd Frazier felt so bad that he apologized to deGrom after the game for the team not scoring.
DeGrom is the first pitcher since Randy Johnson in 1999 to make five straight starts of 7+ innings pitched while allowing two runs or fewer, only to see his team lose each game.
DeGrom has a 0.87 ERA over his last 10 starts (62.1 innings pitched), during which the Mets have gone 2-8.
The Mets' offensive blackout of 11 runs in their last 15 games is almost unheard of, but their inability to score for deGrom has been going on for far longer.
Since the won/loss stat for pitchers doesn't matter and should be abolished, deGrom -- who is 4-2 -- may win the Cy Young award with just those four wins. Or perhaps the Mets will decide to score for him at some point in the near future.
