Meet the Mets
Winning a road series for the first time in what seems like forever, an uncharacteristically strenuous day for Jacob deGrom was saved by the offensive barrage of Robinson Cano and a home run from Jeff McNeil to lead off the game, ultimately giving the Mets a 6-2 victory.
Following a lack of hustle during Saturday’s game, Amed Rosario found himself on the bench for yesterday’s contest.
It couldn’t just be that easy as Mickey Callaway and the Mets had two very different reasons for Rosario’s absence.
On the outside looking in, it may seem as if Jeff McNeil can roll out of bed and go 3-4 with a double, but there’s a lot more than meets the eye in his preparation.
While this series may say otherwise, Robinson Cano has been dreadful on the road compared to his stats at home this season.
The second half is usually a good point for players to turn things around, but Jeurys Familia still hasn’t found his groove this season.
