The New York Mets and their fans should consider themselves lucky.
The two pitchers have five Cy Young awards between them, and lots and lots of pitching knowledge and expertise to share.
When they are both healthy, there is little doubt they are the best one-two punch in MLB.
They have both been hurt a lot in 2022, particularly deGrom, but they are both healthy now and ready to make sure the Mets can return to the postseason.
New York is one of the best organizations in MLB, with a 73-39 record that only the Los Angeles Dodgers have been able to surpass.
The Mets Aces Are Healthy And Dominating
Now that both Scherzer and deGrom are healthy and in a groove, they are in a position to challenge the Dodgers for the “best team in MLB” unofficial crown.
In fact, both teams are extremely likely to face each other in the playoffs, perhaps even the National League Championship Series.
Having deGrom and Scherzer pitch in three or four of those games would be huge.
The Mets posted a cool picture of the two aces having a chat.

They look like they are enjoying their conversation.
Hopefully, both can stay healthy for the remainder of the season and gift fans some of the most impressive stretch run and playoff performance we have seen in recent memory.
Mets fans are in for a real treat watching those two guys starting consecutive postseason games.
They hope they can deliver their first World Series title since 1986.
