Sandy Alderson spoke to the media about a number of important Mets topics.

Reliever Vic Black thinks long toss is key to his success.

The line drive that hit Jon Niese may ending up hurting Daisuke Matsuzaka more than it hurt Niese. Niese has been excellent this season and is not going anywhere.

First base coach Tom Goodwin is back with the Mets.

David Wright was still out yesterday but it sounds like he's expected back today. Dillon Gee tossed six strong innings for the Cyclones yesterday. Meanwhile, Jeremy Hefner faced his first live batters since Tommy John surgery.

The Mets revealed the Frank Cashen patch that they'll wear on their uniforms yesterday.

Yesterday At AA

Will the Mets make the playoffs? James K analyzes.

Matthew Callan continues his look back at the 1999 Mets.

Aaron Yorke previewed the series between the Mets and Rangers.

Around the NL East

The Marlins fell to the Cardinals, the Phillies lost to the Pirates, the Braves won their eighth straight game, and the Nationals fell to the Cubs.

Around the Majors

The A's made a huge move acquiring starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel in exchange for shortstop prospect Addison Russell, outfielder Billy McKinney, and pitcher Dan Straily. With Russell in their system, the Cubs now have an unbelievable group of position player prospects.

The Angels also made a move, grabbing lefty reliever Joe Thatcher and outfielder Tony Campana from the Diamondbacks in exchange for a couple of prospects.

Mike Trout's walkoff home run last night was pretty ridiculous.

Dirk Hayhurst wrote about marijuana usage in the Majors.

Johnny Damon is in shape and says he can outhit half the league. Okay.

CC Sabathia may need microfracture surgery and is likely done for the year.
