Meet the Mets
Getting out of Florida did little to mend New York's losing ways. Lucas Duda notched three hits and drove in the only Mets run in their 5-1 defeat to the Cubs in Las Vegas. Our boys will wake up in Vegas this morning having gone 14 games without a victory.
Sin City native Paul Sewald started the game for the Mets and tossed three scoreless frames before the Cubs broke through against Chasen Bradford in the fifth.
The Mets trounced the Cubs in last year's National League Championship Series, but there could be a rivalry brewing between the two clubs.
Chicago skipper Joe Maddon believes his team will be better prepared to face the Mets' talented pitching staff if the two sides meet in the postseason again.
Although we heard that the Mets were looking to bring in a different backup catcher, it looks like Kevin Plawecki will indeed appear on the Opening Day roster.
The jersey that Mike Piazza wore when he hit his dramatic home run in September 2001 is soon going up for sale.
