Meet the Mets
Steven Matz is having a hard time lately. Last night he was actually pretty good, but he was rewarded with three total hits from his offense and a hard-luck loss. Yoenis Cespedes provided the only scoring with a solo home run, and the Mets fell to the Phillies 3-1. The rubber match is this afternoon.
The biggest piece the Mets have gotten back soon hopes to be just what the doctor ordered for the team’s ailing bullpen.
The selloff could mean many unforeseen opportunities for Mets youngsters, and Brandon Nimmo is looking to take advantage.
Matt Harvey is back to pitching in competitive games. He toed the rubber for the Brooklyn Cyclones in a rehab assignment.
That could mean Chris Flexen’s time in the rotation is numbered, but he’s still hoping to improve his standing with the club heading into next season.
Many fans are starting to fall in love with Amed Rosario. Here’s the story of how the Mets found him in the first place.
Tim Tebow got hit in the head with a baseball, and stayed in the game.
It’s almost that time of year, folks. The Subway Series starts tomorrow, a perfect excuse to relive its best memories.
Around the NL East
You probably heard a group led by Derek Jeter was buying the team. You probably didn’t know it could be a bad omen for the (iconic?) home run sculpture.

This season has no doubt been demoralizing, but there are still reasons for Mets fans to keep watching. Linda Surovich laid out five of them.

This Date in Mets History
It was a dose of R.A. Dickey domination on this date seven years ago. The knuckleballer allowed just one hit (to the opposing starter, no less) in a gem against the Phillies.
