Meet the Mets
Matt Harvey’s command was still lacking in his start against the Diamondbacks, but he managed to limit the damage to three runs. Robert Gsellman pitched an inning out of the bullpen and gave up the tying run, and Rafael Montero gave up a walk-off home run to Chris Herrmann in the eleventh. Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares hit home runs for the Mets, but it simply wasn’t enough and the Mets failed to win a single game on this road trip.
Rafael Montero once again doomed the Mets in the 11th inning because Terry Collins felt he was his only option.
The bullpen continues to be one of the major flaws with this team, and it needs to be addressed before any other radical changes are made.
Mental mistakes continue to pile up, as do the losses, which puts the Mets’ season in a precarious position.
The team is limping home after a disastrous road trip, but they hope getting healthy will turn their fortunes around.
The amount of injuries the Mets have suffered is almost comical, so the New Yorker turned it into a comic strip.
Despite all the doom and gloom surrounding this team, there are several positives that have developed in the first two months of the season.
Around the NL East
Around the Majors
Catch Probability is a stat that can help fans appreciate both the great catches and the great catches that look routine.
Trips to the disabled list have increased significantly this season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean injuries are also on the rise.
Pirates starter Jameson Taillon unfortunately tested positive for testicular cancer.
