Meet the Mets
The Mets had a chance to sweep the White Sox yesterday afternoon and pull within four wins of .500, but they failed to do so. José Quintana fared pretty well in his first major league start for the Mets, but Chicago’s American League squad beat them fairly easily.
Just as the game was getting underway, the Mets placed Starling Marte on the injured list because of the migraines he’s been dealing with recently.
Tommy Pham left the game with a groin injury, the same thing that forced him out of a game earlier this month, but says he’s optimistic that it isn’t as bad this time around.
Gary, Keith, and Ron remain a highly-rated broadcast booth.
Pete Alonso is well aware of his slump.
If the Mets were somehow to become buyers at the deadline, this list suggests Blake Tidwell could be a trade chip for them.
Will Sammon looks at the Mets’ trade deadline approach a bit more realistically.
Jay Horwitz wonders what might have been with David Wright’s Hall of Fame candidacy had he not gotten injured.
Mark Vientos will take Starling Marte’s spot on the roster.
