Meet the Mets

You’d be forgiven for believing this morning’s recap is broken record, because once again Jacob deGrom took the mound and pitched effectively only to have the Mets score a scant two runs, saddling him with the loss. Welcome to Groundhog Day in July.

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, NY Times, Post, Daily News, Newsday, MLB.com, Bergen County Record.

The big story of the day seemed to be the Wilpons, as every columnist around picked Monday to unload on them. Jeff Passan said the Mets’ dysfunction starts at the top. Mike Vaccaro says the Wilpons have risen to the level of some of NYC sports’ most detestable owners. Marc Carig says the Mets will be a mess until the Wilpons change.

Grant Brisbee attempted to remind folks that the Mets are just a bad team and not some special case of terrible.

The Mets placed Noah Syndergaard on the DL due to a case of hand, foot and mouth disease. Marshall Field explained what exactly that is and why it’s so unusual that Syndergaard has it.

Tim Tebow won’t be making it to the big leagues this year, as he’s been shelved for the season with a broken hamate bone.

Jose Bautista and Devin Mesoraco have been generating interest on the trade market.

Yoenis Cespedes went in for an MRI.

The Marlins got pounded into the dirt by the Braves.

The Phillies fell to the Dodgers.

And the Nationals were losers, too, against Milwaukee.
