Mets Morning News: I, Mayor Quimby, declare today "Snow Day"

New, comments

In which the Mets will be snowed out for the foreseeable future, Luis Mateo gets a day in scenic Binghamton, and Danny Espinosa keeps bulletin board makers in business.

Meet the Mets

No Mets baseball yesterday, as the Mets and Twins were wintry mixed out. The game will be made up in August, at which time it will still be a bad idea to play outdoor baseball in Minnesota. The Mets are in Colorado tonight for a game that probably won't get played either. Good times.

Before we bid adieu to the Twins, Mark Simon has the 'Met'rics for the Mets' two-game sweep.

If given the lack of Mets action, you are jonesing for some baseball, take a drive up to Binghamton perhaps. Luis Mateo will make a spot start for Cory Mazzoni tonight against the Portland Sea Dogs.

Mazzoni was sitting just over from me the last couple days charting, so I'm not surprised his arm was sore. I could barely feel my joints on the walk back to the car, but then again, this is far from a finely tuned athletic body.

We have more pitching prospect fun as well. Michael Baron was at Noah Syndergaard's start for St. Lucie this weekend and filed a report on it at Metsblog. And Amazin' Avenue Audio guest Chris Blessing wrote about Steven Matz at Bullpen Banter.

Yesterday at AA

Brock Mahan looked back on a very busy day in Mets history.

Around the NL East

The Braves completed a three game sweep of the Nationals, running their major-league-best record to 11-1. Danny Espinosa is still not impressed. Clearly someone went to the Miguel Batista school for postgame interviews.

Talking Chop notes that the national media is starting to take notice of the Atlanta Braves' start as well. Le sigh.

Roy Halladay looked like Roy Halladay yesterday. Of course, pitching against the Marlins will do that for you. Meanwhile, Cole Hamels was amused by Jose Fernandez's jacket issues on Saturday. Well, we do know that Hamels knows how to put on a jacket.

Around MLB

The Brewers finally scored some runs.

Hardball Talk Times wrote about the lost Yankee home run king. And then the Yanks used a Brett Gardner home run to beat the Orioles last night. Coincidence? Probably.

The Tigers have put a halt to the Athletics hot start, taking the last two of their three-game series, while the Angels finally won a series, taking two of three from the frisky Astros.

Finally, Jeff Sullivan once again brings you the worst pitches and swings of the past week of baseball.
