Meet the Mets
After one of the worst months in franchise history, Steven Matz and the Mets turned the page with the start of a new month. Despite some awful defense behind him, Matz held the Marlins in check and pitched in some offense as well. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a mammoth home run and the rest of the offense tacked on a couple late to help give the team a much needed victory.
Steven Matz has made great strides this season and has gotten better at dealing with mistakes that happen within the course of a game.
Brandon Nimmo has been a bit of a slump ever since getting hit on the hand with a pitch but the outfielder insists that physically he is fine.
The season has reached its halfway point and for the Mets all they can do now is look forward and find tiny positives to build on.
Jacob deGrom seemingly hit a low point after his last start but the coaching staff made sure it didn’t snowball from there with the ace.
Noah Syndergaard and Jason Vargas are both set to take another step forward as they work their way back from injury.
The Mets are hoping the arms they acquired at last year’s deadline will start paying off in the near future.
