Terry Collins, New York Mets Manager named on Saturday the pitching rotation order at Citi Field.

He looked at Game 1 starter Matt Harvey and asked him “You ready for it?” and Harvey answered without hesitating “Damn right.”

So, according to Collins this will be the rotation order that could win the 2015 World Series, first Harvey will pitch Game 1 Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals,  then Jacob deGrom will throw Game 2 at Kauffman Stadium. Noah Syndergaard will handle game 3 in New York, when the series shifts next weekend, and after this Steven Matz will play Game 4.

Collins plan is not to use any of his starting pitchers on three days’ rest, so if it it’s necessary rookie Syndergaard would pitch Game 7 at Kauffman Stadium. However, Collins told Harvey to get ready to play in the finale if the Fall Classic goes that far. If the Mets win, this would be their first championship since 1986.

These are the actual reasons why Collins is starting Harvey instead of deGrom; 1. Harvey played only once in each of the opening two rounds, 2. He would have played next game against the Chicago Cubs, 3. even though deGrom’s postseason is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA, the pitcher had to work through his past two outings.  His pitch counts rapidly boost and he had erratic fastball command, and 4. Collins considers that deGrom could use the extra time, seeing that he might be suffering from fatigue. Also Collins considers its better if Syndergaard throws at home rather than one of the first two games in Kansas City.

“We like going into Kansas City with our Nos. 1 and 2 guys,” Collins explained. “Noah has pitched great at home. We thought that’s a good mix. And obviously we think Steven Matz showed us, even though it hasn’t been the depth into the games like he’s going to do in the future, for four or five innings he’s been pretty good.”
