Meet the Mets

Rafael Montero reverted back to his old ways and gave up five runs in four innings. The rest of the bullpen was ok until Erik Goeddel allowed the Marlins to pile on late. He gave up three home runs to bring the Marlins’ total to four for the day. Brandon Nimmo also hit a home run and Travis d’Arnaud drove in a run but that was all the offense could do against Marlins’ pitching. They now have an off day as they prepare for the final homestand of the season.

Brandon Nimmo has looked great since being given an opportunity to play every day and his plate discipline really stands out.

The bullpen was not good the entire series against the Marlins and they are now tied with the 1962 Mets for a lamentable record.

Amed Rosario is feeling better and could return to the lineup on Friday.

Steven Matz’s season is basically a microcosm of the Mets’ season as a whole.

Despite his past two tumultuous seasons, Matt Harvey will most likely be a Met next year.

It is, however, highly likely that the Mets will be looking for a new manager, but should they look at some former players as candidates?

Bartolo Colon has come a long way from where he once started.

Around the NL East

The Braves fell apart in the late innings in a loss to the Nationals.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 56th home run in the Marlins’ win. Dee Gordon does not hit home runs but has had a good season in what has been another down year for Miami.

The Phillies somehow beat the Dodgers again.

The Nationals took advantage of a shaky Braves bullpen in their win.

Around the Majors

The Yankees did not put up protective netting this season and it became very scary when a young girl was struck by a foul ball. Many players afterward were supportive of putting up netting in order to keep fans safe.

With so many races already decided, there hasn’t been the same excitement surrounding September baseball.

Red Sox ace Chris Sale recorded his 300th strikeout of the season in a win over the Orioles.

The Blue Jays signed pitcher Marco Estrada to a one-year extension.

Justin Upton’s home run for the Angels should have led to a charitable donation by the paint company Sherwin Williams, but they are refusing to pay.

This Date in Mets History

With the city still reeling from the horrific September 11 attacks, baseball returned to New York City on this date in 2001. After a moving tribute to the victims before the game, Mike Piazza brought some smiles to a grieving city when his eighth inning home run lifted the Mets to victory over Braves.
