Meet the Mets
What’s the best way to open your second half? A 14-2 cakewalk isn’t a bad answer, and the Mets did just that on Friday night, chasing Colorado’s Jon Gray from the field after just two innings. Every Mets player who came up to bat got a hit, even Jacob deGrom, who went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and pitched eight innings of two-run baseball. It’s safe to say the Mets are riding Rocky Mountain High after last night’s victory.
Sandy Alderson gave an injury report on many of the Mets’ wounded, and it was mostly rosy.
Amed Rosario tweeted out that he’s ready for Queens.
Sandy Alderson says the Mets will likely be sellers at the deadline, but won’t move any players with long -term deals.

Meanwhile, Chris Flexen continues to be dominant for the Rumble Ponies.
