Meet the Mets
On Sunday Night Baseball, Max Scherzer and the Mets were tormented by the dreaded Kyle Schwarber, beat up on the Phillies’ pitching, and walked away with a 10-6 win over Philadelphia.
As the two best teams in baseball playing in the same town as each other, it is only natural to compare the Mets and Yankees in a head-to-head scenario.
While the no-hitter celebrations on the field were raucous, the celebrations back in the players’ homes were just as jovial.
A partially torn UCL might spell the end of Sean Reid-Foley’s 2022 season, but Tommy John Surgery hasn’t been booked at the moment.
The Robinson Cano era could meet its end on this day.
Even if today is not the end, if you look close enough, you can see Cano’s role on the Mets shrink by the day.
But, if the Cano Era is over, you can count Francisco Lindor on the unhappy side of the reaction.
As of Sunday night, the final cuts are still being debated, but Yoan Lopez appears to be one of the two players heading out.
Taijuan Walker made some dreams come true as he gave tickets to a young Mets fan making their first ever trip to the ballpark.
Buck Showalter was very upset to learn that the Francisco Lindor bobblehead is actually a gnome.
Around the National League East
Sandy Alcantara surrendered the first home run of Julio Rodriguez’s career in the Marlins’ 7-3 loss to the Mariners.
The Braves gave up seven runs in the first three innings as they dropped Sunday’s contest to the Texas Rangers, 7-3.
In a non-7-3 game, the Nationals smacked around Alex Cobb on their way to an 11-5 win over the Giants.
Kyle Schwarber is too good against the Mets and I think he’s gotta knock it off, right now.
As Clayton Kershaw goes through the back end of his career, he is still making history, but with a different vibe to it.
Shohei Ohtani was removed from Sunday’s contest with groin tightness, but the move was mostly precautionary and he could be back in the lineup today.
Around Major League Baseball

For the Blue Jays, Kevin Gausman is recording strikeouts and preventing walks at the best level in major league history...for the month of April at least.
Unsurprisingly, the Camden Yards renovation has taken the ballpark from the easiest in the sport to hit a home run in to the hardest.
