Meet the Mets

Shockingly, the Mets put together a well played game on a Sunday to take the series from the Braves. Robert Gsellman was excellent on the mound, and out-dueled Julio Teheran. Jose Reyes put the Mets on the board early, and Gsellman made the lead stand up until the offense was able to tack on some insurance runs in the ninth. The Mets now head to Miami to play the first game back in the city after it was hit by Hurricane Irma.

Robert Gsellman was fantastic on the mound, but was that the real Robert Gsellman?

Jose Reyes has been hitting well in the month of September, including hitting for power as the season comes to a close.

Kevin Plawecki is making the most of the latest opportunity the Mets have given him.

Noah Syndergaard will face live batters in Miami, and the Mets hope he is able to get into a game sometime over the weekend at Citi Field.

Matt Harvey will be on the mound against the Marlins, and Dan Warthen believes Harvey’s criticisms of his pitching performance was a step in the right direction. Taking into account the past two seasons, the best place for Harvey might be in the bullpen.

No question the Mets need to fill some holes next season, but there are a few players that could find themselves on the trading block as the Mets look to improve in the future.

Around the NL East

Julio Teheran was solid on the mound for the Braves but it was not enough.

Despite being the home team in Milwaukee, the Marlins lost the series to the Brewers.

The bullpen fell apart in the Phillies’ 6-3 loss to Oakland.

Bryce Harper took batting practice on the field, but the Nationals still have no timeline for his return. Washington avoided a sweep at the hands of the Dodgers with a 7-1 win.

Around the Majors

The Houston Astros were the latest team to clinch a playoff spot with their win over the Mariners.

The Indians celebrated their division crown after they defeated the Royals on Sunday.

Tigers’ starter Matt Boyd lost a no-hitter with two-outs in the ninth inning against the White Sox.

Oakland first baseman Matt Olson has been quietly going on a home run tear that rivals the other recent home run binges.

David Price returned from the DL for the Red Sox and threw two scoreless innings of relief.

Yesterday at AA

Amazin Avenue is planning a meet-up at Citi Field for the final home game of the season.
