BOSTON – Do you remember those at best? – David Peterson will have four months into his first Triple-A season. It wouldn’t even have occurred to him that he would spend even a day like a year this year as he learns his crafts in Syracuse.
Meanwhile, at best, remember that Mets was going to find a way to get enough work for six legal starters.
Any saying about the best way to make God laugh?
Tell him your plans?
So Noah Syndergaard stopped performing Tommy John’s surgery as soon as the spring 1.0 workout ended. Marcus Stroman then landed on a torn calf muscle, just like a wind 2.0 workout. And just about Monday night, Mets manager Luis Rojas was trying to figure out what to do on Tuesday when Mets needed to figure out the start of their fifth season game.
The offender was 24-year-old David Peterson, a 6-foot 6th.
“When the game begins,”; Oregon Duck said, “I have a job.”
The first step was Uecker Square – a little outside until the Red Sox second bassist Jose Peraza. His second was demolished from the Green Monster, and in the strange park of this ball, the wall was actually obstructed by what would probably have been housework anywhere else, it had suffered so badly.
In fact, it was so badly damaged that JD Davis was able to guide Carl Yastrzemski and restore a great carbine from the wall and throw Peraz at about 10 feet per second.
An eventful start to the night.
“Not like I would have prepared my first big league,” Peterson said with a laugh.
And then what you know: The nerves seemed to have subsided. He knocked out JD Martinez. He got out of the first sleep undamaged. He scored 78 points, kept the Red Sox out of balance all night, threw a 5 ² / n goal, allowed two runs, and beat three. The Mets won 8-3 and feel much better leaving the city than they did 48 hours ago.
“This is his first hike,” Roy wondered. “And it seemed like he had a lot of trips before. It’s just a solid march. “
And for Peterson, who carries the number 77 on his back, he reminds me of what was unexpected in his 2020. The road was something more.
“It’s one of the biggest days of my life,” he said. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was little. My first start, a win, I couldn’t have asked for much more while being in a historic place like Fenway. Everything merged. I will never forget that. “
It was hard to demand anything more. These Red Sox aren’t quite what the recent Red Sox was, but it’s mostly because of the staff they hired that really need to be made sure. But the Sox line-up, even without the Mookie Betts, is still intimidating – Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Devers.
“It’s a difficult lineup to go through,” Roy said.
It doesn’t matter. The child found himself in trouble several times, including loaded bases, and in the third, none. He then knocked out Martinez, led a double game for Devers, and that was really it.
“I have to go after him,” Peterson said. “I knew I needed a strike. And I made my seats. “
– Child, – did not disappoint Paradise, – did not disappoint.
Robinson Cano, one of Mets’ offensive stars, said: “You can’t ask for a better trip. He was dirty tonight. “
He was great. He was more than Mets could have expected. You never know how these things will go for young players, especially young players. But then in February, it would have been impossible to imagine what had already happened to Mets and other sports this baseball season.
Young David Peterson will remember that. Maybe if everything goes right for him in the next 12 or 15 years, so will everyone else.
