Meet the Mets
Walker Lockett against the Cubs did not go well. After being given the lead, it all fell apart in the third inning. The Cubs scored six runs to take the lead and never looked back. The outcome wasn’t totally unexpected as the Mets continue their downward spiral down the standings.
Regan is a well-traveled coach who has been around the game for quite some time.
Mickey Callaway still got to keep his job despite the team’s troubles.
Dave Eiland was just the latest scapegoat during the Wilpons’ reign of dysfunction.
The pitchers were shocked that their coach was fired, who was mostly respected by the group.
Pete Alonso has been one of the few bright spots this season, and he tied a National League rookie record when he blasted his twenty-fifth home run of the season.
After a down season last year, Dominic Smith changed his approach which has helped him thrive in his role this season (paywall alert).
Wilmer Font could be an interesting trade piece for the Mets.
First base is stacked with talent in the National League, and they all have a case to be named to the All-Star team.
Jeff McNeil continues to have a great season and similarities could be drawn to a Hall of Famer.
