Zack Wheeler was great yesterday and the Mets righty is rolling into the All-Star break in a hot streak.

David Wright's shoulder is improving and not shockingly, he's getting hot at the dish.

Sandy Alderson spoke about the Mets' run differential recently. Does it matter? Yeah, Sandy's probably right.

Scott Boras, at Citi Field for the signing of first round pick Michael Conforto, talked about Matt Harvey's rehab schedule and said he's comfortable with how the Mets are handling him. On the subject of Tommy John recovery, Jeremy Hefner will be returning to game action today with the GCL Mets.

Let's not forget about Mr. Conforto, who took batting practice at Citi Field and then took in last night's victory over the Marlins. He'll head to Brooklyn and could finish the year at a higher level.

Keith Law addressed a bunch of Mets questions in his most recent chat.

Have a LeBron James jersey and live near the St. Lucie, Florida area? The Mets Florida State League affiliate is allowing you to trade in your LeBron James Heat jerseys for a season ticket.

Prospect Wuilmer Becerra recently was arrested for drag racing but the toolsy outfielder has plenty of potential, even if he's not close to reaching it yet.

Yesterday At AA

Matthew Callan continued his series on the 1999 Mets.

Aaron Yorke previewed the Mets series with the Marlins.

It was Star Wars Night at Citi Field last night!

Around the NL East

The Phillies beat the Nationals 6-2, while the Braves fell to the Cubs 5-4. Jordan Zimmermann left his start with a right bicep cramp and is scheduled for an MRI today.

Around the Majors

Some guy named Babe Ruth made his MLB debut 100 years ago yesterday.

Rockies owner Dick Monfort should probably step away from his email as he responded to a fan's complaints by saying that maybe Denver doesn't deserve a baseball team.

Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was arrested for marijuana possession.

In a step to replace Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees have acquired lefty Jeff Francis from the A's. Well, he is a living body, I guess.

The Cubs got the okay to start renovations on Wrigley Field, which include putting seven signs above the famed bleachers and moving the bullpens off the field.
