San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets Prediction

With doubleheaders, it's a bit harder to project starting lineups and all of that. However, once you see the lineup for the first game, projections come a bit easier. That's just something I've learned along the way that I wanted to share. For the Giants, starting pitcher Logan Webb has a 2.75 xFIP with 26.6% strikeouts along with a 5.5% walk rate dating back to last season. He's been able to induce over 60% of ground balls dating back to last season and has been another underrated pitcher for the Giants. He kind of put up Cy Young numbers last season but wasn't really talked about as much. I'm still using analytics from last season and due to that, it's obvious that the Mets will need better offense against righties in comparison to last season. Only Pete Alonso was a real threat last season with .247 ISO and wOBA of .362 dating back to last season. However, the addition of Starling Marte will help on-base averages and Francisco Lindor along with Eduardo Escobar has also been solid against righties. On the other hand, Max Scherzer hasn't been the best pitcher on the Mets this year. However, he's still 2-0 in a Mets uniform. Things are working out. Scherzer has an xFIP of 33.8% with 5.6% walks dating back to last season and while he won't induce a whole lot of ground balls, he will keep the ball in play, keeping ISO numbers down. The Giants match up well against righties and have so much depth to platoon different guys. Right now, the Giants have more flexibility on their bench. Also, the projected lineup against righties for the Giants has a .237 ISO and wOBA of .355. We're not going to see that exact lineup, I'm sure, but the lineup will be close enough. I'll take my chances with the Giants as an underdog in Game 2.
