Meet the Mets
The Mets suffered a shellacking at the hands of Miami after Matt Harvey and the bullpen had an extremely rough night. A seven-run fifth inning would have been enough to do the Mets in, but the Marlins scored six other times throughout the evening for a final score of 13-1. Another night to forget in a forgettable season.
Could Bob Geren be the next Mets manager?
Noah Syndergaard is still hoping to return this season.
He also had some interesting thoughts on Hurricanes.
The Mets are planning to give Jacob Rhame a shot to show he can hang in the bullpen.
Amed Rosario is working on cutting down his errors for next year.
Around the NL East
The Phillies beat the Dodgers by a score of 4-3, but allowed a leadoff inside-the-park home run for the second time this season. They’re the only team to even allow one this season, and the first team since 1936 to allow two in one year.
It was an odd evening for home runs, because the Phillies scored their four runs thanks to a grand slam hit by Aaron Altherr, which was the first grand slam Clayton Kershaw has ever given up.
The MLB single season total home run record is likely to fall today.
Orioles minor-leaguer Miguel Elias Gonzalez was killed in a car crash in the Dominican Republic. He is one of more than a half dozen players killed in car crashes in the Dominican Republic since just 2014. He was 21.
Friends is apparently still the TV show of choice for MLB players looking to learn English.
