Meet the Mets
The Mets were off yesterday, probably because the schedule-makers knew that we would all need a day to mentally prepare ourselves for the return of former Mets prospect Yusmeiro Petit to Flushing. After match-ups with both Petit and Kazmir this year, I am just waiting for a Matt Peterson comeback. These things come in threes, right?
Matt Harvey met with Dr. James Andrews yesterday, and the team will make an official announcement on his status sometime today. Guessing the announcement will be a date and time for surgery unfortunately.
We may be losing Matt Harvey, but we are gaining Jerry Seinfeld. Well, for one game at least. So, is it GKRJ or GJKR?
Faith and Fear reports from a parking lot wiffle ball game outside Citi. Probably more entertaining than the games inside Citi right about now.
And it seems like Lucas Duda is adjusting well to the move to first base.
Yesterday at AA
And Rob Castellano delved into Travis d'Arnaud's pitch-framing skills.
Around the NL East
Cliff Lee facing the Marlins? That's like shooting fish in a barrell.
Jeff Sullivan tries to find examples of Barry Zito bringing the heat. He succeeds, sort of.
Rob Neyer tries to figure out why Cleveland fans are still staying away from the Jake.
And most nights I would be glued to the TV for Yordano Ventura's debut, but tonight is not most nights. #PETIT #PETIT #PETIT
