Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Mets-Red Sox, the score, and deGrom’s total strikeouts. Boston won 1-0, and deGrom fanned nine.

Subscriber John Hardy (@johncyclejohn) was all over it, predicting a Red Sox win and 10 strikeouts for deGrom. Nice work, John!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
