Meet the Mets

Logan Verrett's gem of a start last season in Colorado seems like a distant memory. He struggled mightily with his command and gave up three home runs Saturday, putting the Mets in a hole from which they couldn't dig themselves out. The Brewers will try to earn a series split this afternoon.

This year's MLB draft is over, and here's a list of everyone the Mets picked.

One of those picks has a rather peculiar characteristic.

Ken Davidoff at the New York Post wonders if the Mets are preparing for Matt Harvey's departure.

Mike Vorkunov at Baseball Prospectus thinks the Mets might be running in circles.

Former Met Josh Satin decided to retire and believes head injuries altered his career.

Around the NL East

The Atlanta Braves might not be done with their long-term fire sale.

The Marlins lost in Arizona, due in part to some rare Jose Fernandez struggles.

Phillies fans weren't happy with yesterday's 8-0 loss, but they're more concerned with the latest Vincent Velasquez injury news.

An 8-0 loss for Philadelphia meant an 8-0 win for the Nationals, who go for the sweep today.

Around the Majors

The Pittsburgh Pirates sought out catching help after Francisco Cervelli broke his hand.

Madison Bumgarner isn't the only pitcher who wants to take part in the Home Run Derby.

The Seattle Mariners added another Griffey to their family.

David Ortiz is a very nice man, and he even wants to help his opponents relax.

Warriors star Klay Thompson can't root for his local team while his brother Trayce is in town.

Yesterday at Amazin' Avenue

Chris McShane analyzed Day 2 of the Mets' draft and closely followed Day 3.

We took a look at Travis d'Arnaud as he rehabs his way back to the active roster.

We examined the implications of Neil Walker's injury.

This Date in Mets History

Fans don't remember June 12 especially fondly, and for good reason. On this date in 2009, Luis Castillo blew a Subway Series game when he dropped a pop-up that would've been the game's final out. The game-tying and game-winning runs came around to score, resulting in an improbable loss.
