Meet the Mets

Keith Hernandez got yet another glowing review of his social media wizardry, this time from the New York Times.

Some guy named Matt Harvey will take the mound for his Reds debut tonight against the Dodgers.

Harvey’s teammates recalled his last brilliant performance, against the Royals in the 2015 World Series.

The Daily News’ Kristie Ackert placed the Mets’ slump not on Mickey Callaway, but on the team’s flawed roster.

Tim Tebow’s presence in Binghamton is having a positive effect on a city that almost lost the Mets’ Double-A team years ago.

Around the National League East

Ozzie Albies hit his first career grand slam as the Braves routed the Marlins for their third consecutive victory.

Marlins rookie Caleb Smith was impressive before handing the reins over to the bullpen.

Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 to lead the Phillies past the Giants, completing a four-game sweep.

A pitchers’ duel went 11 innings in Arizona, with the Nationals outlasting the Diamondbacks for a 2-1 win.

Around Major League Baseball

Jon Heyman broke down the top 20 midseason trade targets, and listed the Mets as in the market for a lot of them.

Baseball Prospectus determined which group of players to debut on the same day went on to collect the most hits in their careers.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Allison McCague introduced the haul from the Harvey trade, catcher Devin Mesoraco.

Nathan Gismot made a case that’s becoming increasingly difficult to argue with.

This Date in Mets History

In 1972, the Mets traded for Willie Mays on the same day Tom Seaver earned his 100th career win by holding the Dodgers to one run across eight innings.
