Meet the Mets
The Mets got destroyed by the Cubs again on Thursday, 14-6, en route to a sweep at the hands of Chicago. Seth Lugo lasted just three innings, surrendering eight runs (seven earned) and nine hits. New York tagged Jen-Ho Tseng for five runs in three frames in the Cubs starter’s major league debut, but got blasted in the battle of the bullpens. Dom Smith went 2-for-3 at the plate and hit a homer for the second straight game, his third in four contests. The Mets lost Amed Rosario (tight hip flexor in his right leg) and Travis d’Arnaud (twisted right knee) to injury in the game.
Tim Tebow has sparked a dramatic increase in minor league attendance.
Beyond Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, the 2018 Mets rotation is a bucket of question marks.
Perhaps the most puzzling of those mysteries is what the Mets can expect from Matt Harvey next season.
Darryl Strawberry is just as unhappy with Mets ownership as fans are.
