Meet the Mets
Michael Cuddyer was out of the Mets lineup yesterday but his balky knee wasn't the reason.
Terry Collins talked about his ejection last night, saying that his team is in a pennant race.
Chris Young was a trainwreck for the Mets last year but he isn't thinking about them during a strong season in the Bronx.
Around the NL East
Washington picked up a half game on the Mets, though only because the lights decided not to function properly at Nationals Park.
Jose Fernandez was good early but the Marlins fell to the Phillies 6-3. The big news for the Phillies was the announcement that pitching prospect Aaron Nola would come up to the big leagues. For Miami, it was that Dee Gordon hit the DL with his dislocated thumb.
Around the Majors
Pedro Martinez surmises that 60 percent of big leaguers used performance enhancing drugs when he was pitching.
Kyle Schwarber is back up for the Cubs and had 3 hits but also 2 errors.
