Meet the Mets
The Mets did a complete 180 from their series in Los Angeles by finishing off a sweep in San Francisco. Rafael Montero pitched pretty well on the mound and the offense was home run happy with Rene Rivera leading the charge. He went deep twice and both Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson also left the park. Granderson literally left the park when his ball splashed down in McCovey Cove.
No win is ever easy for this team, and this time the concern was for Michael Conforto when he had to leave the game after he was hit on the wrist with a pitch.
Rafael Montero looked much better on the mound and was able to throw strikes against the Giants’ batters.
Michael Conforto’s exit from the game was a scary moment for the Mets, but it appears they avoided the worst-case scenario.
Jacob deGrom did turn his season around and got some help from John Smoltz to get him back on track.
The Mets might need to go through a minor retooling instead of a major rebuild in order to compete in the near future.
There are plenty of needs Sandy Alderson can address at the trade deadline.
Tim Tebow received a promotion to the St. Lucie Mets.
There are plenty of managerial candidates out there for the Mets to choose from next season.
Around the NL East
Around the Majors
Plenty of players could be on the move at the trade deadline.
The Cubs’ young stars that were so good last year have been unable to replicate that production so far this season.
