Meet the Mets
The Mets teed off on the Rockies in Denver, with Brandon Nimmo leading the charge with an inside-the-park home run, as well as a conventional homer. Jacob deGrom finally got the run support he deserved and the Mets cruised to a 12-2 victory for their third straight win.
One thing seems certain, the Mets will at least entertain trade offers.
The Mets might try to use Syndergaard and deGrom as bait to get teams to take other players like Jeurys Familia or Zack Wheeler.
Noah Syndergaard’s finger was feeling good enough to play catch.
Jay Bruce wanted to play on Monday night but the Mets weren’t taking any chances.
