Meet the Mets

Good morning, Mets fans! You missed the Mets yesterday, didn't you? Well don't worry, because they're back tonight to start a short two-game series in Philadelphia.

Juan Lagares continued his rehab at Triple-A Las Vegas last night, posting a hit.

Greg Logan suggests that Travis d'Arnaud is starting to live up to his loft expectations.

Michael J. Fensom says that Anthony Recker has earned the confidence of the pitching staff, and that's why the Mets are 6-0 in games he's started.

C.C. Sabathia says that his friend Curtis Granderson will rebound soon.

Adam Rubin wants to know if you really buy the Mets as a playoff contender.

Jerry Crasnick suggests that the NL East is wide open with Bryce Harper's injury. Time to make some hay, Mets!

Andy Martino writes that Frank Viola is finally at ease after heart surgery.

Jacob deGrom talks about his excellent start to the year.

Around the NL East

The entire NL East was off last night, but the division becomes busy tonight as the Mets take on the Phillies, Marlins take on the Braves, and Nationals head to Houston.

Around the Majors

By beating the Cardinals, the Brewers improved to an excellent 10-1 on the road and 19-7 overall.

Touted A's second-year pitcher Sonny Gray pitched a gem last night, beating the Rangers for his first career shutout.

Jay Jaffe suggests that the Cardinals demoting Kolten Wong makes no sense.

Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs writes that not all hitters who swing out of the zone are alike, and this needs to be accounted for in advanced metrics.

Jim Baumbach wants to know how Yankees fans will react to Robinson Cano, after he was booed on the "Tonight Show" this week.

The Red Sox have made no effort to talk with Stephen Drew, Aaron Gleeman reports. Now the question is, have the Mets?

Ryan Braun has a strained oblique, and may miss more than the original 5-day rest period he was being given.

Awful Announcing released their rankings of MLB broadcast teams, and Gary, Keith, and Ron were well-represented.

Greg Karam wrote about Brandon Nimmo's big day, as well as Juan Lagares' rehab in today's Daily Farm Report.
