MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets took an 8-7 win over the Phillies on Sunday Night Baseball in a game that cannot be done justice by a fun little recap at the top of this news.

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

Shortly after temporarily blowing the game, Edwin Diaz left the game during the replay review with a stiff back.

Dominic Smith and Miguel Castro were both fined for their role in Friday’s bench-clearing incident.

For a league that wants to make people think it lets the kids play, MLB sure does a lot of play policing.

It’s easy to lose sight of it after, you know, everything that happened in the game, but David Peterson actually had a nice start.

Thanks to Osama bin Laden being caught and compromised to a permanent end during Sunday Night Baseball 10 years ago, last night’s game doesn’t even get to be the wildest Phillies-Mets game ever.

Things are progressing well and Luis Guillorme may be able to come straight off of the injured list when his ten days are up.

Despite leaving his last start early, Marcus Stroman is moving and vibing well and is optimistic about his chances of making his next start.

Around the National League East

In an NL East showdown, Max Scherzer threw a complete game while his wife was in labor as the Nationals won 3-1 against the Marlins.

Atlanta’s pitchers let them down again as they took a 7-2 loss at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays of Dunedin.

With a thumb sprain threatening his season, Travis d’Arnaud has been placed on the 60-day injured list with William Contreras and Jeff Mathis taking his spot on the roster and as the starting catcher.

In a very short time, Contreras went from the catcher of the figurative tomorrow to the catcher of the literal tomorrow.

After his game-tying home run became a game-not-tying double, Rhys Hoskins remained very agitated, even after the game.

For the part he played in Friday’s ruckus, Jose Alvarado was suspended by MLB for three games, but he decided to appeal it, leading to his pitching in last night’s loss for Philly.

Around Major League Baseball

The Blue Jays sent Old Friend Tommy Milone and large catcher Alejandro Kirk to the 10-day injured list.

Jesus Luzardo suffered a hairline fracture in his hand after falling victim to a heated gaming moment.

Some Red Sox players held a group prayer before their game, listening to the only song that you need at that moment: ...Baby One More Time.

Though the benches cleared on Saturday, Amir Garrett was still talking incredibly spicy about the Cubs on Sunday.

A strained right hip flexor has put a long pause on Luis Robert’s sophomore season with the White Sox.

Believe it or not, Mike Trout has officially passed Ken Griffey Jr. in fWAR.

Royals prospect Daniel Lynch will make his major league debut today, getting the start against Cleveland.

They may not have any real chance at getting in, but sometimes the most interesting players on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot are the ones who are nothing more than solid dudes.

A throwing-arm injury has sent the Dodgers’ Dustin May to the 10-day injured list.
