Meet the Mets
The first double header of the season goes all according to plan for the Mets. They got two wins, sandwiched between the big names returning to action and making big contributions.
The day game was punctuated by an emphatic return for Yoenis Cespedes, although it’s unclear when he’ll be able to play again.
It was just as an impressive return for Steven Matz in the nightcap, as the lefty looks to help solidify an ailing Mets rotation.
It was undoubtedly a good day for the Mets, but the club needs to prove it can keep the good times rolling.
Wilmer Flores continued his excellent play, smacking six hits over the double header.
Things aren’t going as well for another Mets infielder. Asdrubal Cabrera’s defensive struggles have some fans calling for a replacement.
Down in the minors, the Tim Tebow experience has run into a rough patch.
