Meet the Mets

The Nationals obliterated the Mets 25-4. Just about nothing went right for the Mets on Monday night in a game that saw the team use seven pitchers including Jose Reyes in the eighth inning. They will play the final game of the two-game series tomorrow at 12:05 PM.

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

Wilmer Flores left Tuesday’s game due to dehydration and dizziness.

Mickey Callaway said he and pitching coach Dave Eiland pushed for the team to keep Zack Wheeler and the front office listened.

Though the Mets did not make any moves at the deadline, that doesn’t mean they won’t stand still during the month of August writes Matt Ehalt.

Joel Sherman wonders if the Mets will regret not shopping some of their top players at the trade deadline.

Tim Britton asks whether or not the Mets know who they are as a team.

The Mets not trading Jacob deGrom could end up defining the trade deadline writes David Lennon.

In his first ever pitching appearance in the majors, Jose Reyes topped out at 87 mph while giving up six runs in one inning.

Yoenis Cespedes is scheduled to have his first heel surgery on Thursday.

Around the National League East

Before they beat up on the Mets, the Nationals decided not to trade away any of their star players, mainly Bryce Harper.

The Phillies acquired catcher Wilson Ramos from the Rays.

Philadelphia was not the only team in the division to make a deadline day move as the Atlanta Braves traded for Orioles starter Kevin Gausman.

The Marlins were sellers on Tuesday as they shipped away Brad Ziegler and Cameron Maybin.

Around Major League Baseball

Chris Archer was sent to the Pirates in the biggest trade of the day.

Chris Sale was placed on the DL with inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

The Brewers acquired Jonathan Schoop from the Orioles.

The Dodgers traded for infielder Brian Dozier as well as reliever John Axford.

You can find every single trade made at the deadline here.

Noah Syndergaard is not the only pitcher now to contract hand, foot and mouth disease. J.A. Happ was sent home on Tuesday with the virus.

In theory, the best teams in baseball should be buyers at the deadline, but do they have the prospects to make big trades?

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

If the Mets want to contend in 2019, they’ll need to sign Manny Machado writes Chris McShane.

Vasillis Drimalitis previewed the series against the Nationals.

Lukas Vlahos delivered the daily prospect report.
