Meet the Mets

The first place New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks by securing a 4-2 Sunday afternoon win in Flushing. Of course, Jacob deGrom left the game before the sixth inning with some tightness, so that’s not rad.

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

In his first start back from lat inflammation, Jacob deGrom departed the game while warming up for the sixth inning with what the team described as “right side tightness.”

If you were expecting a nice update on deGrom’s MRI in this space, I am sorry, but that is coming later today.

Shaking up the bullpen, Trevor Hildenberger was sent down to Syracuse while Drew Smith makes his return to the major league roster for the first time since last season.

With ten extra pounds over the offseason and some more work during the regular season, Edwin Diaz has found himself in a nice groove.

Happy and healthy as a party of four, Mother’s Day means a lot more to the McCann family than pink catcher’s gear.

If you’ve noticed the Mets being more aggressive on the bases this season, that’s by design.

Queens native, and Mets fan, Justin Yu became the recipient of the 100,000th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine administered at Citi Field.

Around the National League East

In the Bronx, Giancarlo Stanton walked off the Nationals in the ninth inning, giving the Yankees a 3-2 win over last place Washington.

It wasn’t quite a walkoff, but the Marlins dropped their Sunday afternoon game to the Brewers after 10 innings in a 2-1 contest.

Airing on the Illustrious ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, the Braves and Phillies battled with Atlanta coming out on top, 6-1.

On a one-year contract for $1.5M the Braves have officially reunited with reliever Shane Greene.

Around Major League Baseball

Albert Pujols’ final hours with the Angels were so chaotic and heated that you’ll be shocked that it didn’t come straight from the office of the Wilpons.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, a few of the matriarchs of the Houston Astros threw out the first pitch(es).

In what should be a familiar-sounding headline Old Friend Jake Marisnick exited Sunday’s contest with a right hamstring injury.

With the Yankees already on the upswing, things may get even better with the return of Luke Voit potentially coming on Tuesday.

For the Blue Jays, Nate Pearson made his 2021 debut and it was firmly in the realm of Not What You Want.

Playing against the Colorado Rockies for the first time in his career, Nolan Arenado’s Revenge Game saw him hit a home run in his first at bat against the black and purple.

I assume you will all be upset to learn that the Dodgers’ losing ways have resulted in Trevor Bauer entering a state of being “pissed” which is unfortunate.

Okay, now that you’ve had that nice moment of schadenfreude, I am afraid I have to tell you that Adam Wainwright is still freezing guys with his curveball at 39.

As my way of apologizing for telling you about Wainwright, please enjoy this adorable collection of stories from and about the moms of Major League Baseball.
