Meet the Mets

The Mets left a bunch of dudes on base and the bullpen left too few men on base as the Blue Jays took the final game of the series against their interstate rivals.

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, Daily News, ESPN, MLB.com, Newsday, Post.

ALLEGEDLY, Steve Cohen is to sign an agreement at some point today to take majority ownership of the Mets which will be approved at the November owners meeting.

Attempting to answer the question that has confounded the greatest minds in history, the Mets have decided to build the entire bullpen out of the rotation.

The odds of the Mets making the playoffs decreases by the day, but there are some things the Mets could do to help themselves over these next two weeks.

Steven Matz has come off of the injured list while Drew Smith has been banished to the land of Brooklyn.

Jeff McNeil’s early departure from Sunday’s game was attributed to “gastrointestinal discomfort.”

Around the National League East

Manager Dave Martinez and the Nationals are progressing towards an agreement on a new contract for 2021 and beyond.

Not even the arm of Max Scherzer could stop the Atlanta Braves as they came out on top of the Nationals in an 8-4 contest.

The Marlins took both ends from the doubleheader from the Phillies to the tune of 2-1 and 8-1, respectively.

That Sixto kid is not a friend of the Phillies as Sixto Sanchez plowed through and past his former team in the first half of Sunday’s doubleheader.

With the 98th game of 10 or more strikeouts in his career, Max Scherzer officially surpassed Sandy Koufax on the all time list.

Around Major League Baseball

The Yankees observed a moment of silence for Tom Seaver before their game against the Orioles.

The Chicago CubsAlec Mills tossed the second no hitter of the season, and the second from a Chicagoan, after Lucas Giolito.

David Ross became the 11th man in major league history to catch one no hitter and manage another.

After nearly 100 powerless plate appearances, Albert Pujols finally connected for home run number 660, tying him for fifth on the all time list with Willie Mays.

While he can’t be in the stadium, Mike Cameron is still intently following the rookie season of his son, Daz.

At some point during the course of today, the Athletics will make their acquisition of Jake Lamb official.

Another incorrect report from exactly the guy you’d expect created some issues and resulted in quite a quote from Alex Dickerson.

This Date in Mets History

Madam Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, the first lady of the United States, and my fellow citizens: feast your eyes upon the starting pitcher edition of the Mets State of the System.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Happy 46th birthday to everyone’s favorite submariner: Chad Bradford.
