Mets Morning News: Padres have the Mets' number again in 2-0 loss

New, 81 comments

Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Another game at Petco, another feeble offensive outing for the Mets' offense who wasted a solid outing from Noah Syndergaard in a 2-0 loss. The Mets produced 3 hits and 5 walks throughout the course of the evening, but seemed incapable of moving any of their runners into scoring position. Third base coach Tim Teufel made a particularly questionable call to send Asdrubal Cabrera home on Wilmer Flores double in the seventh, and he was thrown out at the plate.

Syndergaard has been given a personal catcher by the Mets, rocket-armed Rene Rivera.

On the bright side of things, Syndergaard and Michael Conforto apparently love being roommates!

Lucas Duda has apparently proved to be quite the value pick in fantasy leagues thus far.

Terry Collins has been experimenting with the lineup, and many were surprised to see Juan Lagares batting second in Friday night's game.
