Meet the Mets

Our boys did not play a baseball game yesterday. The Mets will be back in action tonight when they take on the Cincinnati Reds at 7:10 p.m. Bartolo Colon and Alfredo Simon will be your starters.

Matt Harvey is reportedly being shut down for the rest of the season in the near future. He will not pitch in the majors this year and he will not throw at 100 percent velocity until spring training.

The Binghamton Mets lost Game 2 of the Eastern Division series 7-0 to Portland Sea Dogs. The series is now tied at one game a piece.

Andy Martino reports that the Mets are being very tight-lipped on the future of Terry Collins with the team.

Hitting coach Lamar Johnson says that Curtis Granderson may need to work on an adjustment to his swing in the offseason.

The Star-Ledger has a nice story on Bobby Parnell finally reuniting with his bullpen teammates towards the end of a long, lonely rehab process.

Around the NL East

Atlanta's Ervin Santana is one player who does not take for granted the wonderful smells of baseball.

Grantland has a long profile of Giancarlo Stanton and how the Marlins trading their slugger could be like the Red Sox trading Babe Ruth.

The Good Phight asserts that Phillies reliever Jake Diekman is more than just a LOOGY.

Around the Majors

The Brewers have lost nine straight games. The only silver lining is that the last time the team made the playoffs, it also went through a September slump.

The Yankees hit two home runs in the bottom of the ninth to come from behind and defeat the Red Sox.

According to Dodgers starter Zack Greinke, sometimes being dumb can help you be good at baseball.

Grant Brisbee recently found out who baseball's most hopeless franchise is. It is not the Mets. Hooray!

Ichiro is surprisingly good at smack talking in Spanish. Why are we just finding this out now?

Yesterday at AA

Michael Avallone wrote about Zack Wheeler and his desire to be a part of successful Mets teams in the future.

The freshest episode of Amazin' Avenue Audio is now available.

On this date in 2010, Ruben Tejada hit the first home run of his career.
