Meet the Mets

The Mets found a new way to win last night, trailing from the first inning through the bottom of the ninth before Neil Walker delivered a Giant-killing blow, and singled home the winning run for a 4-3 Mets victory.

Choose your recap: Amazin Avenue short and long, Bergen Record, Daily News, MLB.com, Newsday, NJ.com, Post, Times.

Matt Harvey will be starting again in Friday’s game against the Brewers, but his situation continues to get uglier.

The Mets apparently sent security personnel to Harvey’s residence to “check” on him.

The New York Post claims Harvey was out partying at 1Oak nightclub until 4 AM on the night before the game he missed.

The Daily News’ Kristie Ackert believes the Mets need to trade Harvey sooner rather than later.

Yoenis Cespedes could be back in about two weeks, according to Terry Collins.

The Mets designated Adam Wilk for assignment to make room for Tommy Milone on the roster. Milone is likely to start Wednesday’s game in place of Rafael Montero.

The Braves acquired Danny Santana from the Minnesota Twins, sending Kevin Chapman and cash to the Twin Cities.

The Braves also called-off their Ryan Howard project, and released the former All-Star from his contract.

The Nationals lost to the Orioles, allowing the Mets to gain some much-needed ground on them.

The Marlins lost to the Cardinals, and also lost Miguel Rojas to a broken thumb.
