The Mets had Monday evening off, and I'd assume they used that time to watch one of the more exciting ends to an NHL season I've ever seen*. Zack Wheeler probably spent the evening preparing for his second major league start though, as he's set to face Chris Sale and the White Sox this evening.
*Presumably thinking happy thoughts involving Jason Bay and home runs
Howard Megdal spent the off-day looking at a few numbers, specifically innings pitched at Double-A and Triple-A. He came up with rough timetables of when some prospects will reach 150 or so innings at that level, which is typically when the Mets begin to consider them for promotion.
Yesterday at AA
Seeing as it's Wheeler day today, we mad sure to tease you a bit with a PITCHf/x review of the rookie's first start.
A Beltran .gif is good, but hopefully a Matt Harvey version made your day even better.
Finally, we looked back at Mets history on the day that Jerry Koosman recorded his 100th win.
It was a quiet night for baseball, with only four games being played. Only one of them involved an NL East team, with the Phillies doing what the Phillies do best, losing.
Speaking of rookie outfielders that look pretty good, Yasiel Puig was at it again yesterday.
In the only other game in the majors last night, Cleveland beat Baltimore 5-2.
