The Mets' Opening Day starter, Jon Niese, has pitched well so far overall, despite the conditions he has had to face in a few of his starts.
Two of Niese's six starts occurred in Minnesota and Colorado, which included snow and very cold temperatures. Nonetheless, Niese kept battling through both starts, just like he always has.
Niese pitched very well in his first two starts against the Padres and Marlins before the two starts in Minnesota and Colorado. Niese managed to pitch five strong innings against the Twins, but did not get as much run support against the Rockies when he suffered his first loss.
Niese then picked up a no-decision in his fifth start against the Dodgers, even though he had to leave the game in the third inning after being hit with a batted ball in the third inning. Niese then made his most recent start against the Phillies in which he took his second loss.
All in all, Niese has looked very good generally speaking, but could always use more run support from the struggling Mets offense.
