Meet the Mets
Coming off a disappointing series against the Dodgers, the Mets were desperate for any help they could get. Enter the Giants, National League West cellar-dwellers. The Mets teed off on the Giants, on their way to an 11-4 win.
In perhaps the day’s biggest story, Asdrubal Cabrera asked the Mets for a trade after they asked him to switch positions and play second base.

The Mets are finally ready to listen to trade offers for some of their veteran players.
