Meet the Mets
Sandy Alderson announced that the team will move back to a 6-man rotation for the foreseeable future with Steven Matz coming up from Triple-A. Alderson also discussed the trade market, in which he said he's willing to "overpay" for a hitter to help the offense.
There are plenty of looks at Mets lefty Matz from places like Fangraphs, Grading on the Curve, and even Amazin' Avenue! Omar Minaya was the GM when the southpaw was drafted and didn't think Matz would be this good.
Noah Syndergaard was fantastic over 8 innings and showed just how good he can be. Ruben Tejada left last night's game with an elbow contusion and is day-to-day. There's no estimate on the return of David Wright.
Jeff Sullivan has a well-written piece on the state of Juan Lagares' defense, which he thinks is less a decline in skill and more a function of luck and opportunity.
Gary Cohen and Howie Rose faced off against a pair of Long Islanders in SNY's "Beat the Booth" show.
