MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

For the first time in what feels like an eternity, the New York Mets found themselves on the winning side of things thanks to an eighth inning rally leading to an eventual 8-5 victory over Atlanta.

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, Bergen Record, MLB.com, Newsday, Post.

A bright beacon of happiness in an ever-expanding, lugubrious lagoon showed itself on Sunday evening as it was announced that three Mets had made the All-Star Game: Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Jacob deGrom.

McNeil and deGrom were voted onto the roster by their peers, but Alonso was added to the roster by Major League Baseball itself.

Pete Alonso spoke with ESPN about his goals of ball disintegration when he comes to the plate.

As he starts the month of July leading the National League in batting average, Jeff McNeil professed that winning the batting title was always a dream of his.

Proving that all good things must come to an end, Carlos Gomez was designated for assignment upon Noah Syndergaard’s activation.

Jeurys Familia continued his rehab assignment with the Syracuse Mets

Up in Syracuse, Familia will be joined by the recently waived Ryan O’Rourke upon his official passing through waivers.

As the days and weeks go by, the Edwin Diaz-Robinson Cano trade might be inching its way towards the trading hall of infamy.

With the 1969 team in town, today’s Mets could learn a thing or two from the legends of yesteryear.

When the Yankees come into town, it’ll be Zack Wheeler and Jason Vargas on the mound to greet them.

Around the National League East

With seven runs coming in to score in the sixth inning, the Phillies had few problems in their 13-6 victory over the Marlins.

Back in Detroit for the first time since signing with the Nationals, Max Scherzer struck out 14 men over eight innings in the Nationals’ 2-1 win over the Tigers.

Around Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball officially announced the full 2019 All-Star Game rosters for the National and American Leagues.

Good news for the dinger lovers of the world as Christian Yelich, Josh Bell, and Ronald Acuna Jr. all announced that they will be participating in the Home Run Derby.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will take the ball for the National League All-Stars to start the game next Tuesday night.

In a surprising twist, a New York baseball team is having regrets over the management of a player’s injury, and it isn’t the Mets.

In what has become an intense baseball controversy, the Delaware state senate voted on the Professional Athlete Funding Act.

While this weekend was Major League Baseball’s first soiree in the European market, it probably won’t be the last.

Clearly overcome with joy due to his selection to the All-Star Game, Zack Greinke gave a very impassioned interview.

Despite a multitude of setbacks, Brian Cashman still believes that Luis Severino will return to the Yankees in 2019.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1993, Dwight Gooden set the Mets record for most career home runs by a pitcher which still stands to this day.
