Meet the Mets
The Oakland A’s rolled into town to take on the Mets at Citi Field. In a wild, back-and-forth game Michael Conforto proved to be the difference-maker, playing like the All-Star he is. Conforto collected two home runs and four RBIs as the Mets came away with a 7-5 victory to open their series with the Athletics.
Yoenis Cespedes told reporters before the game that he’d like to finish his career in Oakland and that Bob Melvin is the best manager he’s ever played for. He was singing a very different tune after the game.
Curtis Granderson brushed off retirement rumors and said he’d be open to returning to the Mets.
Neil Walker and Brandon Nimmo are getting closer to their respective returns to the Mets.
Noah Syndergaard is jealous of his bobblehead’s hair.
