Meet the Mets

The Mets lost to the Reds 2-1 yesterday, and they had flamethrowing closer Aroldis Chapman on the ropes in the ninth inning. But Eric Young Jr. was called out after a replay review showed that he had popped off third base after stealing it. That play didn't end the game, but it did not help the Mets' cause.

Ken Rosenthal reports there's some disagreement among Mets brass over whether or not Terry Collins should be brought back for the 2015 season.

Faith and Fear reflects on the Mets' loss and Collins's comments about not giving Dilson Herrera a look at short.

Bill Madden writes that the Mets must acquire Yoenis Cespedes from the Red Sox this winter and calls the idea Sandy Alderson's "Gary Carter moment."

Travis d'Arnaud is hitting like one of the best catchers in baseball.

The Mets are looking to give Rafael Montero a start and some bullpen work over the course of the rest of this season.

Curtis Granderson could set the Mets' single-season record for strikeouts, a record he holds with the Yankees.

Thus far, Dilson Herrera's major league career is off to a good start, particularly at the plate.

Carlos Delgado had some nice things to say about his time with the Mets.

Around the National League East

The Braves beat the Marlins thanks to an Evan Gattis home run.

The Nationals just can't seem to beat the Phillies, and they lost to them again yesterday. Washington has a bit of a closer situation on its hands, too, as Rafael Soriano has not been good lately.

Around Major League Baseball

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy left his start against the Yankees yesterday after throwing just one pitch.

The A's, who you might have noticed have been in free-fall mode recently, came back late to win a game.

Dave Cameron would like to know if you have a good way of evaluating managers.

As Tony La Russa starts looking for a new general manager for the Diamondbacks, he'd like the team to use analytics more.

If Daniel Murphy returns soon, what's next for Dilson Herrera?

The Mets have to be patient with Wilmer Flores's bat.
