Meet the Mets
A bullpen that has been very good this season was not good yesterday, turning a two-run lead in the ninth inning into a two-run loss in eleven innings. These things happen. The Nationals won, though, so the Mets have just a half-game lead in the National League East. Jacob deGrom was excellent, too, which is always good to see. Danny Muno made three errors in the game, tying a Mets record.
Dillon Gee is back in the rotation this afternoon.
Bobby Parnell made his return from Tommy John surgery, and it sounds like he was pretty excited about that.
Jeurys Familia has helped his family build a house in the Dominican Republic, something he's been saving towards since he came to the United States to play professionally.
Steve Serby's Q&A series continues with Wilmer Flores.
