There's A New Matz In Town And His Name Ain't Daisuke!

Where to begin on this guy,man!Steven Matz had probably one of the most memorable major league debuts by a Mets pitcher since.....shit I don't know,but what a debut It was!Matz went 7.2 innings ,fanned 6 while allowing two runs on 5 hits.He was even more impressive at the plate ,going 3 for 3 with a two run double and two singles that also drove In a run.He became the first pitcher In major league history to drive In 4 runs in his big league debut.Reading about It Is one thing ,but watching the kid on at the plate(no batting gloves)'d think you were watching a regular position player. Matz looks like a hitter .Oh,and he can pitch ,too!95 plus stuff Is what hitters can expect to see when facing the young lefty.He's fresh off of a minor league rehab assignment and Is about to be reinserted Into the Mets rotation sometime In September.What Matz has done In his short stint In the majors Is sample size,and I don't wanna go nuts over him prematurely.The kid does have talent,though,and will be high on my want list as far as his cardboard goes.
