Meet the Mets

Thirteen months to the day since his last appearance at Citi Field, Jacob deGrom was perfect through five and led the Mets to their fourth win over the Braves in five games.

Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue, NY Post, Daily News,, Newsday, ESPN.

Jacob deGrom returned to the Citi Field mound, and God, oh God it was beautiful.

In his return, deGrom set a new major league record for most strikeouts in the first 200 games of a career.

As far as team records go, deGrom, Rodriguez, and Diaz tied Tom Seaver and David Cone at the top of the Mets’ single game strikeout leaderboard with 19.

It’s not quite a clinched division yet, but it’s safe to say that the 2022 Mets will not roll over and die.

All of the Boys are Hot after this weekend, but Pete Alonso might be the most hot of all the Boys.

In his second start off of the injured list, Jesús Luzardo shut down the Cubs for seven innings in the Marlins’ 3-0 win over Chicago.

Pete Rose brushed off questions about his sexual relationship with a minor, saying that the allegations were “55 years ago, babe” as he attended an event commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the Phillies’ 1980 title.

Around Major League Baseball

The Padres are new and cool and shiny, but that didn’t stop the Dodgers from doing what they usually do and stomping them into next week.
