Brett Baty is real, and strong, and he has been promoted to the major leagues for the Mets’ series against the Dodgers.

It took a bit longer to get here than people would like and there is no doubt that Baty earned the call to the majors.

Eduardo Escobar, Francisco Alvarez, and Buck Showalter had nothing but praise for Brett Baty ahead of his season debut.

Pete Alonso’s 154th career home run tied him with Dave Kingman for fifth on the Mets’ all-time leaderboard.

Against the Dodgers, the Mets will face Dustin May, Clayton Kershaw, and Old Friend Noah Syndergaard.

Dylan Bundy’s first start in AAA for the Mets went...badly as the veteran gave up nine runs before finishing the fifth inning.

As of this morning, the Mets lead the National League with 20 successful stolen bases.
