Meet the Mets
The Mets finished out the 2016 preseason in dominant fashion with a win over the Cubs in Las Vegas yesterday afernoon. The Mets won 8-1 behind a very strong start from Steven Matz. The Mets' offense exploded with home runs from Yoenis Cespedes, Eric Campbell, T. J. Rivera, and Ty Kelly.
The major Mets coverage in the media continued to be about Matt Harvey's bladder. Harvey, who has continued to avoid talking to the media, is apparently pumped about getting back on the mound, though.
The Mets also set their Opening Day roster today. Some players, like Kevin Plawecki, had reason to celebrate. Others, like Sean Gilmartin, will start the season at Triple-A.
