Meet the Mets
The Mets’ offense has gone straight past rock bottom and is now plummeting towards the Earth’s core. They couldn’t manage a single run in the finale against the Orioles. If there were any positives it was again the starting pitching. Zack Wheeler was outstanding and pitched seven shutout innings. The Mets will now have a day off before taking on the Yankees this weekend.

The team is apparently angry by their recent play but Todd Frazier thinks they are ready to play the Yankees (bless his heart).
The Yankees are on the hunt for starting pitching and again Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard’s names have come up.
The Mets are at least considering cutting ties with Jose Reyes but there are some in the organization who feel a proper sendoff is more important than moving on from a player who clearly isn’t helping the team.
Former Met Bartolo Colon finally tied Juan Marichal for most wins by a player born in the Dominican Republic.

Another lefty from Long Island was drafted by the Mets.
