Meet the Mets
A big trade, and a routine loss. The Mets shipped Lucas Duda to the Rays, then sent Chris Flexen to the mound for his MLB debut. The Padres got to him early, and after the Mets fell into a 7-1 hole, a comeback effort came up short. Next stop, Seattle.
Curtis Granderson was among the many Mets players and fans who didn’t take the news of Duda’s departure too well.
But for all we know, he could be the next to go. Mets fans should expect at least one more trade before the deadline passes.
The trade paves the way for Dominic Smith’s call-up, here’s what Met fans should expect.
Chris Flexen didn’t play that well, but he says he still enjoyed his MLB debut.
Another struggling starter for the Mets has been Steven Matz; his manager says it’s because he’s trying too hard.
The hot corner has been more of a hot seat for the Mets lately.
