Meet the Mets

Rich Sandomir in the Times cautions that the Mets' promise of cash isn't a promise to actually spend it.

Former Mets catcher John Buck was surprised that Matt Harvey chose the Tommy John route, though Pittsburgh closer Jason Grilli, who had the surgery himself in 2002, thinks Harvey will be fine.

Carlos Beltran says that he has nothing against the Mets and would listen to an offer from them.

Reggie Jackson alleges in his new book that the Mets didn't draft him #1 overall in 1966 because of racism.

John Harper wrote about how Mike Scioscia's home run off of Dwight Gooden in 1988 ended the Mets' era of dominance.

Yesterday At AA

Matthew Callan says that while Matt Harvey's injury stinks, the fans will endure.

Jeffrey Paternostro wrote about Cyclones' second baseman and Mets' 2013 4th rounder L.J. Mazzilli.

Around the Playoffs

The Red Sox torched David Price and beat the Rays for the second game in a row, this time by a score of 7-4. David Ortiz hit two home runs and Price was not happy with how Ortiz watched his second bomb. Then, Price got on Twitter and let all those stupid nerds have it! SAVE IT NERDS! What a cool guy.

The A's walked-off on Stephen Vogt's bases loaded single, as they defeated the Tigers 1-0. Sonny Gray and Justin Verlander both pitched masterfully in this one. The series is tied at one as the two teams head to Detroit on Monday.

The Pirates and Cardinals start game three of their series this afternoon at 4:30, while the Braves and Dodgers play their 3rd game tonight at 8:00.

Around the Majors

Alex Rodriguez is not only fighting Major League Baseball and the Yankees' team doctor, but now he's also fighting the MLB Player's Union.

Rumor has it that the Marlins are now "all-in" on pursuing Cuban first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu. No word yet on if they're "all-in" on trading him away for prospects next offseason.

Eno Sarris spoke with Sonny Gray about refining his mechanics and letting it fly.
