Want to see an exciting stat? An 8-3 start is a really good omen for the Mets if we're to believe in past history.

Danny Muno is a New York Met and he's 1-1 in the big league with a stolen base! To make room for Muno, the Mets demoted Rafael Montero to Las Vegas. Montero won't be there for long, however. Muno's mom made it to Citi Field for his debut last night despite suffering a stroke just a couple of weeks ago. You go, Mrs. Muno!

Bobby Parnell is not ready to be activated after getting hit around in his most recent rehab appearance in St. Lucie. It looks like Vic Black is much closer, though.

Should the 25-man roster be expanded? Terry Collins thinks so, as he's advocating a system like in hockey where teams can carry 28-30 players on the roster but only activate 25 for a game.

Toby Hyde profiled two Mets hitting prospects who are coming stateside this summer that could be wild cards in the near future.

A potential sale of the Binghamton Mets that would relocate the club to Wilmington, Delaware has gone to court.

Around the NL East

The Nationals defeated the Phillies 7-2 yesterday.

The Braves outslugged the Blue Jays 8-7.

Don't fear, Phillies. Top pitching prospect Aaron Nola could be in the rotation soon (like hopefully really soon for their sake).

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been benched and the Marlins catcher is mad, though he will try not to be a distraction.

Around the Majors

Mike Trout is the youngest member of the 100 home run/100 stolen base club in MLB history, beating Alex Rodriguez's record by 56 days.

Speaking of A-Rod, he hit two home runs himself last night. Viva A-Rod!

Kris Bryant made his big league debut yesterday, going 0-4 with 3 strikeouts. Does the Cubs rookie have a weakness?

Josh Hamilton is in great shape and ready to play, say his teammates. He met with manager Mike Scioscia, who is concerned about him getting the support he needs.

Mark Buehrle is pondering retirement after 2015. Known for his outstanding durability, the lefty has had a pretty underrated great career over the years. Did you realize he's been worth 58.2 rWAR?

Jose Reyes has a cracked rib and wants to play through it, though the Jays will make a decision about him on Tuesday.
