Meet the Mets
The west coast trip has improved from brutally abysmal to just plain bad for the Mets. They’ve now won two in a row in San Francisco, courtesy of some brilliant pitching from Jacob deGrom and solid hitting from Wilmer Flores. They can make it a sweep Sunday afternoon.
The dispute between the team and infielder (not shortstop) Asdrubal Cabrera is still ongoing. There are no winners, and it’s hard to pick a side.
It could foreshadow a bunch of moves that will make next year’s Mets roster aggressively different.
On the bright side, no other impending free agent is expected to demand a trade request, so that’s good I guess?
We’ve also seen more of Curtis Granderson in the lineup over the past few days, and it’s coinciding with some improved results.
Around the NL East
The Phillies were easily dispatched by the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Around the Majors
Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
Cory Lack examined what business the Mets might be open for in the coming weeks.
That will most likely include Asdrubal Cabrera, as noted by Aaron Yorke.
And Ryan Almodovar kept us up to date on the prospects already in the system.
This Date in Mets History
Not much on-field history for the Mets on June 25, except for a very strange game in which they didn’t record a single assist. It’s also Carlos Delgado’s birthday.
