Meet the Mets

The Mets lost to the Indians yesterday, as Matt Harvey took a perfect game into the fifth inning and wound up giving up five runs before his start ended in the sixth. It's still the middle of April, but the Mets are now 5.0 games back of the Nationals after Washington's 9-1 start to begin the year.

Jacob deGrom's newborn son is doing better this morning, according to Terry Collins. Here's hoping everything continues to go well for the deGrom family.

In deGrom's absence, Logan Verrett will make another start. The Mets are hoping he can replicate his excellent performance from his last start in deGrom's spot in the rotation.

Travis d'Arnaud was hit by a pitch on his left elbow during the loss, but x-rays came back negative.

David Wright gets a scheduled day off in the series finale this afternoon. He played in each of the Mets' previous six games, and he has hit .273/.429/.364 to start the season, both things that are fairly promising.

Around the National League East

The Nationals won their seventh straight game as the beat up on the Phillies. That had Philadelphia fans decidedly less than thrilled. And Dusty Baker talked about trying to get to know Nationals ace Max Scherzer.

The Braves won their second game of the season, beating the Marlins in the process. Fish Stripes takes a look at the heroes and zeroes from that game.

Around Major League Baseball

Lone Star Ball has a great piece on Adrian Beltre, the beloved third baseman who just agreed to a two-year extension with the Texas Rangers.
