Meet the Mets

Almost everything went right for the Mets on Sunday as Noah Syndergaard threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Pirates while the offense put up 13 runs behind him.

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

In the most important news you’ll hear all month, Jeff McNeil and his wife will be having a press conference this Tuesday to officially introduce their new puppy.

Not all Mets news is good news because Robinson Cano departed Sunday’s game with a hamstring strain. Cano has an MRI scheduled for some time today.

Much like his previous injuries, Cano’s strain comes just as he was beginning to hit his stride at the dish.

Jacob Rhame was placed on the IL with elbow discomfort and the newly-acquired Donnie Hart came up to take his place.

For the Mets, not trading Noah Syndergaard might be the best move they make this season.

Much like Pete Alonso has done for the Mets, the PiratesJosh Bell has struggled coming out of the break.

When it comes to getting out of a post-break slump, not even Pete Alonso’s beard is above being sacrificed.

With Dom Smith on the shelf, J.D. Davis is getting his time in the spotlight.

Davis capitalized on his most recent day in the sun by becoming the first player to send a ball to the fourth level of PNC Park’s left field structure.

Around the National League East

Thanks to a trio of homers, Reynaldo Lopez and the White Sox took the finale against the Phillies by the score of 10-5.

In the final game of the Great Florida Fray, the Rays secured a 7-2 win over the Marlins.

Despite the best efforts of Ronald Acuna Jr., the Braves took a 6-4 loss to the Reds thanks to another shoddy appearance from Shane Greene.

With Adam Jones driving in four runs, Patrick Corbin and the Nationals took a 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Since the Phillies don’t play the Mets 162 times per season, Maikel Franco’s performance landed him back in Triple-A.

While the Rays may have won the baseball game, the Marlins’ twitter account took a unanimous victory in the Twitter game.

Around Major League Baseball

It has been rumored that during the 2017 trading season, the Tigers refused to trade Michael Fulmer for Javier Baez or Alex Bregman.

In yet another chapter in their disastrous season, the Angels placed Griffin Canning, Andrelton Simmons, and Felix Pena on the injured list.

Aaron Hicks became the latest Yankee to find himself on the injured list and he was shelved for a right flexor strain.

Funded by Rougned Odor, the Venezuelan little league team is coming to the United States to participate in the Little League World Series.

With his official induction to the Hall of Fame in the rear view mirror, Lee Smith’s number may be getting retired by the Cubs.

In the midst of a dreadful season that saw him pulled from the rotation, Zack Godley is being designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks.
