Meet the Mets
The Mets fell to the Diamondbacks 5-3 last night after a long rain delay pushed the game back by two hours. Matt Harvey was good until he allowed a three-run home run to the hated Cody Ross in the sixth inning. The Diamondbacks scratched out two more runs to break it open. Damn you, Cody Ross.
Dillon Gee faces Ian Kennedy as the Mets look to win the series against the Diamondbacks this afternoon.
Matt Harvey should start the All-Star game opposite Max Scherzer, says Dave Schoenfield. There are more pictures of Harvey's ESPN bodies photo shoot. The first photo that came out continues to melt hearts.
Jon Niese's MRI was pushed back to Monday. Meanwhile, Shaun Marcum is hurting but expects to make his next start. Terry Collins held back from using Carlos Torres in case they needed a starter in place of Marcum or Dillon Gee.
Anthony Recker starts again this afternoon but Terry Collins says he's not bailing on John Buck. I don't know, maybe he shoudl.
The Mets continue to make adjustments with Zack Wheeler, who was angry with his most recent bullpen session. HE CARES!
Will the Mets trade Marlon Byrd? Byrd says he wouldn't be surprised.
IMPORTANT: Exclusive interview with Mr. Met, who names David Wright as his favorite Met. I knew I always liked that guy.
