Meet the Mets

Despite a rocky ninth inning for the Mets’ bullpen, Michael Conforto and the gang were able to sink the Pirates for the third straight game.

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, New York Times, Bergen Record,, Newsday.

In a move that shocked the baseball world, the Mets traded Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods-Richardson to the Toronto Blue Jays for Marcus Stroman.

While it hasn’t been confirmed, it looks as if Stroman will be donning number seven for the Mets.

After the news broke and the dust settled, Long Island’s Marcus Stroman took to Twitter to express his excitement to come back to New York.

Out of all the teams that could’ve ended up with Marcus Stroman, somehow it ended up being the Mets.

Much like Stroman, Anthony Kay took to Twitter to say his goodbyes to the team that drafted him.

Ultimately, the Stroman trade may do more for the Mets in 2020 than in 2019.

Have no fear Mets fans, Noah Syndergaard is just as confused about the trading deadline as you are.

Before the Marcus Stroman trade became a reality, the Mets were said to be interested in the services of Robbie Ray.

Reports say that a trade of either Noah Syndergaard or Zack Wheeler is still likely, and based on reports coming from out west, the Athletics might be a prime destination for one of the pair.

If the Mets do end up trading Noah Syndergaard, they can only hope that it will be as fruitful as the one that brought him to Queens.

As he was about to be taken from the game, the IndiansTrevor Bauer decided that the best course of action was to catapult the ball over the fence in center field.

Lost in the shuffle of the Stroman trade, the Blue Jays called up Bo Bichette.

As Bichette made his way to Toronto, Eric Sogard made his way out of Toronto as he was officially traded to Tampa.

As Walker Buehler nears the end of his All-Star campaign, his late uncle remains an important figure in his life and career.

Following the MLBPA’s dismissal of Rick Shapiro, has sparked some concern and blame as the end of the bargaining agreement draws near.

In a much less exciting move, the Rays sent Hunter Wood and Christian Arroyo to the Indians.

Putting a damper on the back end of his retirement tour, the Yankees placed CC Sabathia back in the injured list with knee inflammation.
