Meet the Mets
It was a rocky (and Rockie) night for Matt Harvey in Colorado as he again struggled on the mound in a 5-2 loss at Coors Field. Harvey didn't make it out of the sixth inning, getting pulled after giving up 11 hits and 5 runs. It's the latest in a series of bad performances by Harvey this year. He now sports a 3-5 record and a 4.93 ERA.
Kevin Plawecki drove in the Mets' only two runs of the night when he doubled home Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker in the second.
Logan Verrett will be starts for the Mets tonight.
David Wright isn't worried about his fielding despite costing the Mets 8 runs so far this season according to Fangraphs.
The Mets may bring back Steven Matz before his next turn in the rotation if he's ready.
Steiner Sports is apparently holding a shindig at the 40/40 club on May 26 honoring the 30th anniversary of the 1986 world championship season. Fans can buy (expensive) tickets and hobnob with Daryl Strawberry, Doc Gooden, Mookie Wilson, and Jesse Orosco.

Jose Reyes, who has been on paid leave all season after being charged with domestic abuse, will be suspended until May 31, making his suspension 51 games in total. The charges against Reyes were recently dropped after his wife stopped cooperating with prosecutors.
Pitcher Jon Gray, who beat the Mets last night, is apparently an avid ghost hunter when he's not pitching.
