Meet the Mets

Jacob deGrom and Corey Oswalt were added back to the Mets’ roster on Friday, but they might as well have stayed away for another day. Both men were hit hard by the Milwaukee Brewers, who absolutely thrashed the Mets following a long rain delay on Friday night. Even a sure thing homer by Todd Frazier was snatched out of the air by a leaping Lorenzo Cain. It was a miserable game for Mets fans, and hopefully a bump in the road and nothing more.
