Meet the Mets

Ugh. Our boys got crushed by the Buccos again. This time the score was 9-1 and it was Francisco Liriano dominating the New York bats with 12 strikeouts in just six innings. Andrew McCutchen hit another home run to finish off the Mets, who scored just four runs all weekend.

The Mets were without Juan Lagares (elbow soreness) and Lucas Duda (hamstring tightness) on Sunday, but neither player figures to be out for long.

After the game, manager Terry Collins held a team meeting to address the Mets' struggles.

New York also made a roster move, calling up Danny Muno again while sending third catcher Johnny Monell back to Las Vegas.

Collins told reporters that Matt Harvey is going through a dead arm period. Apparently that's not a serious issue.

Meanwhile, Dillon Gee will make one more rehab start with Binghamton before joining New York's dreaded six-man rotation.

Around the National League East

Aaron Harang and his vagabond career could move to yet another new team this July.

Not even Harang was enough to stop Washington, though. The Nationals defeated Philadelphia 4-1 to wrap up the series victory.

The Marlins won their second straight over Baltimore thanks to a strong Tom Koehler outing and a home run by Martin Prado.

Around Major League Baseball

Jose Reyes will finally return to Toronto's lineup today. The shortstop has been out of action for a month due to a cracked rib.

Justin Upton hit a grand slam and later added two more RBI to lead the Padres to a big win over the Dodgers.

The New York Times writes about how Mark Teixeira and Mike Moustakas are both having success against defensive shifts this year despite their different approaches.

Dodgers fan and YouTube filmmaker Bobby Crosby made another Hollywood-style catch yesterday.

We don't see a lot of home plate collisions anymore, but Steven Souza appeared to have no issue railroading Oakland's Stephen Vogt.

Considering the recent David Wright diagnosis, the Mets may be looking for longer-term fix at third base. It turns out that Casey McGehee is now available on waivers.

Remember, Jeff Paternostro will be at Pitch Talks in New York City on Thursday!

This date in Mets history

In 1979, the Mets had their home game with the Pirates suspended due to a dense fog.
