Meet the Mets

Wow, Jacob deGrom. The Mets' ace put together an incredibly dominating pitching performance in the 6th inning of last night's All-Star game. He threw 10 pitches and struck out all 3 batters he faced.

Sadly, there's no change in the status of Mets third baseman David Wright. The Mets' captain was voted one of the Franchise Four, along with Keith Hernandez, Mike Piazza, and Tom Seaver.

Rafael Montero has become a forgotten man after being shut down in April with a shoulder issue but he started his rehab journey yesterday in the GCL.

New "new" Citi Field has been a kind place to the Mets in 2015.

Lefty Darin Gorski continues to plug away in Vegas, winning the PCL player of the week.

Prior to being drafted by the Mets, slugging infield prospect David Thompson overcame blood clots and surgery to relieve Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis set a pair of Mets records over the last week.

Around the NL East

Steve Cishek and Dan Haren are drawing trade interest.

The Nationals are looking for a bullpen arm to stick in the back of their bullpen.

Scott Coleman looked at the State of the Braves at the halfway mark.

While Jonathan Papelbon tries to get himself traded out of Philly, the closer made his 6th All-Star team.

Around the Majors

Mike Trout picked up his second consecutive All-Star game MVP, providing the keynote to the American League's 6-3 victory with his leadoff home run.

A trade likely won't ever happen but Troy Tulowitzki is pretty impressed by the Mets' pitching staff.

Trevor Rosenthal missed the All-Star game with a sore arm.

Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax, and Johnny Bench were named the greatest living players yesterday. Sorry but Barry Bonds should be there.

David Price and the Tigers have yet to talk contract extension, though they will not be trading the ace lefty.
