So far, 2021 has been the year of the pitcher -- and none have been better than Mets ace Jacob DeGrom. But what has made DeGrom's performance this year so remarkable is that, among other things, he’s throwing harder as he gets older. Tim Britton, who covers the Mets for The Athletic, recently spoke with people who know DeGrom and have worked with him over the years, to try and figure out how DeGrom is adding velocity as he moves into his mid-thirties, if it's an anomaly or part of a trend, and what all of this could mean for the future of baseball.More from Tim Britton:https://theathletic.com/author/tim-britton/

The band originally called themselves Magneto U.S.A. but changed their name after signing with Hollywood Records Miles Zuniga Quotes from the Exclusive TJS Interview w/ Kat Zuniga Quotes: “It's discipline. I have met so many songwriters, but they're not really songwriters. And they always make the same mistake, which is: ‘I have to be inspired.' Well you are never going to do anything if you are waiting around for inspiration. Yes, inspiration is the rocket fuel that really gets the job done. But as they say, the muse like to see you working. So if you are just sitting around waiting you are wasting your time. You need to be disciplined about it, and you need to do it as often as possible. Do it all the time.” “When you are creating, think of it as cement. As long as the cement is wet, you can go anywhere. Once the cement dries, you're f***ed. You can no longer create. And when that happens to you it's because you got attached to an idea.” http://www.fastballtheband.com All the Pain Money Can Buy Anniversary edition
