Many are declaring Max Scherzer back to his old form after allowing just one earned run over seven innings on Thursday, and bringing his ERA over his last four starts down to 1.03.
But Gio isn’t sharing that optimism, at least not yet.
“Didn’t we learn this last year and the year before with Max?” Gio said. “So there’s nothing to worry about now for the rest of the year?”
Gio was one of the Mets fans worried that Scherzer might be toast after his rough start to this season proved to be a deflating follow-up to his struggles down the stretch of 2022, and for anyone calling out Gio for having that take now that Scherzer has turned in four straight quality outings, Gio warns that there is plenty of time for the pendulum to swing in the other direction.
“If you’re calling out people for calling it too early because they were bad, and now you’re calling it out because they’re good, it’s still June 2!” Gio said. “What are we talking about??”
Boomer tried to focus on the positive, and while he has also been critical of Scherzer, the future Hall of Famer has shown over his last four appearances that he still has some valuable gas left in the tank.
“It just goes to show you that it’s a very long season,” Boomer said. “It was great to see. His last few outings have been very good.”
