Meet the Mets

Jacob deGrom is so hot that he might as well be nicknamed “the sun” at this point. The brightest light on the Mets’ pitching staff delivered again Friday night with a masterful seven inning start, which saw him give up just one run on three hits while collecting twelve strikeouts. Curtis Granderson and Travis d’Arnaud each knocked in a run, and the Mets picked up a 2-1 victory over the Phillies.

Terry Collins refused to go into detail about the possibility of Bartolo Colon’s return to the Mets.

Michael Conforto may be headed to the DL to make room for Zack Wheeler on the Mets’ roster.

Sandy Alderson admitted what many have long known, that the Met’s signing of Tim Tebow was as much a marketing ploy as anything.

Curtis Granderson says there’s no secret to his recent hot streak.

Reporters asked Sandy Alderson where Matt Harvey was in terms of his recovery from his recent injury. Alderson’s joking answer: “Where is he other than Page Six?”

Around the NL East

Jacob deGrom took a no-hitter into the 5th inning during yesterday’s game, but Atlanta’s Mike Foltynewicz took one into the 9th before Oakland’s Matt Olson hit a solo home run off him.

The Marlins lost a close game to the Brewers. The most notable moment of the game came when someone nailed umpire Joe West in the head with a baseball thrown from the stands.

Ichiro is now the oldest player in the majors, at least until Big Bart returns and leads the Mets to the World Series.

The Nationals were forced to put Trea Turner on the DL with a fractured wrist. The Nationals gave no timetable for his return, but he is likely to be out for a while.
