Meet the Mets
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Mets got a solid start from their starter (Steven Matz), couldn’t put things together on offense, and lost on a walkoff. Well, that’s exactly what happened in the Mets’ 3-2 loss to the Giants.
Assuming a his round of live batting practice goes well, Zack Wheeler should be joining the Mets during the upcoming homestand.
Proving that hopes and dreams aren’t the only thing that the Mets can shatter, Pete Alonso obliterated his bat over his knee after a strikeout.
Down in A-ball, teenager Simeon Woods-Richardson is doing his fair share of growing up and developing.
While he may be the shortstop of today, Andres Gimenez might displace Amed Rosario as the shortstop of tomorrow.
Around the National League East
A fan tried to get a handshake out of Brad Miller, but he was quickly cuffed and taken down into the Phillies’ dugout by security.
Around Major League Baseball
Up in Cooperstown, the Hall of Fame welcomed Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay, Mike Mussina, Mariano Rivera, Lee Smith, and Harold Baines into their halls.
Edgar Martinez’s admission into the Hall of Fame could open the doors for generations of designated hitters down the line.
Before yesterday’s game, the Giants designated Derek Holland for assignment.
To avoid putting himself in a hairy situation, Andrew Cashner specifically put a beard clause in his contract preventing him from shaving.
