Royals beat Mets 4-1 00:01:23
New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto was the only batter to drive in a run in the Mets 4-1 loss to Kansas City.

The Mets fell to the Royals 4-1 on Friday night at Kauffman Stadium. >> Box score

Four takeaways from Friday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard was magnificent through the first four innings. He ran into trouble quickly in the fifth, allowing a single and then back-to-back double by Meibrys Viloria and Nicky Lopez. Two runs scored in the fifth, giving the Royals a 2-1 lead. Syndergaard got into another jam in the sixth, but with tow runners on, he struck out Bubba Starling and Ryan O'Hearn to end the threat. Syndergaard went six innings, allowing just two earned on five hits. He had gone at least seven innings in each of his prior six starts.

Callaway praises Rosario, Alonso 00:02:20
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway praises both shortstop Amed Rosario and first baseman Pete Alonso with how well they've been hitting.

Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso made Mets history on Thursday night.

During Thursday's 10-8 win over the Braves, Rosario and Alonso each recorded five hits, the first time two Mets have ever done that in the same game. 

Rosario went 5-6 on the night with four runs scored, providing a spark at the top of the lineup and upping his season average to .289.

"He has really upped his game on top of what he did last season," Mickey Callaway said after the game. "He is continuing to develop, like we talked about the last couple years, right in front of our eyes, and he's becoming a great hitter. What he's done the last few months is spectacular."

Mets beat Braves 10-8 00:01:38
New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario and third baseman Pete Alonso combine for 10 hits as the Mets beat the Braves 10-8.

The Mets escaped Atlanta with a 10-8 series finale over the win thanks to an early offensive outburst. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Thursday's game

1) Pete Alonso and Amed Rosario led an early offensive outburst for the Mets, as New York scored three runs in the first two innings. In the first, Rosario doubled and Joe Panik singled, which helped the Mets cash in three runs on Alonso's 39th home run. In the next inning, Rosario tripled after Ronald Acuna missed a liner with a dive. That scored Marcus Stroman and then Wilson Ramos plated two more runs with a single to right field later in the second. 

In total, both Alonso and Rosario had five hits and Alonso tallied six RBI.

Overshadowing the Mets' loss to the Braves on Tuesday night in Atlanta was the sight of Jeff McNeil pulling up lame and grabbing his hamstring after trying to leg out an infield hit in the ninth inning.

McNeil walked off the field with a noticeable limp and said after the game that he "felt a little snag" and was hoping it was just a cramp.

But while the Mets got good news after McNeil's MRI, he has been placed on the 10-day IL.

Nats avoid sweep 00:01:19
Former Met Asdrubal Cabrera's two-run double broke a 3-3 tie as the Nationals avoided a sweep and snapped the Mets 8-gm winning streak, 7-4

The Mets couldn't keep their winning streak alive, as the Nationals collected a win, 7-4, at Citi Field on Sunday. >> Box score

Five Takeaways from Sunday's game...

1) Jacob deGrom didn't begin the game the way he wanted to, as a crucial botched play allowed three runs to cross the plate in the top of the first inning. With the bases juiced, Pete Alonso made a nice diving play and the inning looked to be over. However, he was called for a throwing error that allowed all the runs across despite deGrom stopping before reaching the bag. Overall, deGrom went five innings, allowing three unearned runs on four hits while striking out seven and walking one...

Mets down Nationals 4-3 00:01:48
New York Mets infielder Luis Guillorme tied the game with his 1st career HR but J.D. Davis' sac fly gave the Mets the lead for good.

The Mets' magic extends streak to wins in 15 of their last 16, as they top the Nats 4-3. >> Box score

Five Takeaways from Saturday's game

1) Luis Guillorme picked a heck of a time to hit his first-career home run. After thinking he had walked, Guillorme stepped back into the batters back in the eighth and sent the next pitch into the upper deck in right field against pitcher Fernando Rodney, tying the game at three as Juan Soto hit a solo homer in the top half of the inning to give the Nats a brief 3-2 lead. The excellent hitting of J.D. Davis then continued, as he scored Joe Panik with a sacrifice fly for the game-winning run later in the frame.

2) The resurgence that RHP Noah Syndergaard has experienced continued against the Nats. Syndergaard allowed seven hits, two runs and two walks in seven innings. Syndergaard collected five strikeouts as well. With the seven innings of work, Syndergaard's reached that number of innings pitched in his last six starts, a streak that leads the majors. Syndergaard navigated a successful outing despite throwing 29 pitches in the first inning.

Mets stun Nats in 9th 00:01:32
Todd Frazier hit a game-tying 3-run HR and Michael Conforto finished off the 9th inning comeback as the Mets rallied to beat the Nationals

The Mets scored four runs in the ninth inning to beat the Nationals 7-6 in dramatic fashion. >> Box Score

Four Takeaways from Friday's game

1) Trailing 6-3 in the bottom of the ninth, JD Davis gave the Mets some hope with a leadoff double down the third-base line. Wilson Ramos then singled up the middle, giving the Mets first and third. Todd Frazier then delivered maybe his biggest hit as a Met, crushing a three-run shot just inside the left-field foul poul.

Joe Panik then recorded his first hit as a Met, a single up the middle. Juan Lagares tried to bunt, but Panik was thrown out at second on the fielder's choice. With two away, Amed Rosario singled to the left side, setting the stage for Michael Conforto, who delivered with a walkoff single to win the game.

2) Marcus Stroman's Citi Field debut got off to an electric start. The Medford, N.Y. native struck out seven through the first three innings, but he got into trouble in the fourth, allowing three runs, including a two-run home run from Juan Soto. Stroman battled back, though, and in after a shutdown fifth inning, he got out of a second-and-third jam with one out. He struck out a season-high nine batters.

The Mets (56-56, 9.5 GB in NL East, 2.5 GB in Wild Card) aim to sweep a doubleheader against the Miami Marlins (42-68, 22.5 GB in NL East, 15.5 GB in Wild Card) in the second game of a four-game series on Monday at Citi Field on SNY.

The Mets offense showed support for Jacob deGrom on Monday en route to a 6-2 win vs. the Marlins in the first game of a doubleheader at Citi Field, putting the team at a .500 record for the first time since May 28 (56-56). >> Box Score

Five Takeaway's from Monday's game

1) While known for his skills at hitting anything, Jeff McNeil's started to build himself a power reputation over the past few days. McNeil homered for the third-straight game on Monday and wasted little in doing so. McNeil hit a homer on the first throw from Marlins pitcher Robert Dugger in the game. Not only that, Dugger was making his major league debut, so McNeil sent the first pitch of his career over the right field fence in Citi Field.

The Mets jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back, winning 13-2 over the Pirates >> Box Score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard continued his dominance, allowing just three hits through 7.0 innings of work. This is his fifth straight start where he went at least 7.0 innings. Sadly, his four game streak of at least eight strikeouts came to an end, as the right-hander only struck out three Pirates batters. Syndergaard improves to 8-5 on the season with this win.

Marcus Stroman
Marcus Stroman

During his six years in the majors, Marcus Stroman has made opposing hitters repeatedly put the ball on the ground. This has led to countless, obvious articles being written about how the Mets' poor infield defense will hurt his effectiveness.

This is not untrue, but it's also not as extreme as people think.

For instance, as Eno Sarris of FanGraphs recently pointed out, while the Mets do have weak infielders, the Blue Jays have been nearly as bad -- giving up a .256 average on ground balls compared to New York's .264 average. In total, Sarris explains, this amounts to roughly the handling of 50 more ground balls, of which 40 or so were rated routine.

Could Amed Rosario be a center field option for the Mets?

Maybe one day, but for now, Mickey Callaway is pumping the brakes on that idea. 

"As an organization, we're always going to be willing to do everything we can and think outside the box to be the best we can," Callaway explained on Friday. "The one thing we did focus on and knew we were going to focus on before we did anything with (Rosario) was to continue to try to help him develop at short, and it seems like that's really paying off."

Syndergaard dominant in Chicago 00:02:02
New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard threw a gem but back-to-back HRs from Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto secured the victory in 11.

The Mets let a masterful start from Noah Syndergaard go to waste, but they fought back to win 5-2 in 11 innings. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard was stellar, and at times absolutely unhittable, especially early on in the game. He breezed through the first four innings on just 41 pitchers and allowed one baserunner, a third-inning walk to Yolmer Sanchez. He finished the game with just five hits allowed over 7.1 innings, giving up just one unearned run. He also struck out a season-best 11 hitters. If this was Syndergaard's last start with the Mets, it was a terrific one.

Not that there was any real doubt, but Robinson Cano's "I'm Not Done Yet" night at Citi Field on Tuesday was a pointed reminder the Mets will be trying to patch together and add to their flawed roster with the hope of trying to win again next season rather than rebuild.

Which raises an obvious question with the trade deadline a week away: what's the best way to improve for 2020?

Trading free agents-to-be Todd Frazier, Jason Vargas, and even Zack Wheeler won't bring back much in the way of difference-making talent for next season -- not with the way GMs hold tight to their best prospects these days, especially in deals for rental players.

Four takeaways from Tuesday's game

1) What do you know, Robbie Cano? After hitting just one a home run at Citi Field the first half of the season, the Mets second baseman belted three against the Padres in a 4-for-4 day at the plate on Tuesday. Cano crushed a solo shot in the fourth inning and laced a two-run blast in the sixth, both off ace Chris Paddack. He gave an encore performance in the seventh when he turned on a 95 mph fastball and sent it into the upper deck in right field off reliever Logan Allen to put the Mets up 5-0. Cano is now hitting .342 with five home runs and 10 RBIs since the All-Star break.

When it comes to Mets shortstop Amed Rosario, two things can be true.

It can be true that Rosario hasn't yet put it all together during an at-times frustrating three seasons -- especially when you consider the expectations that were heaped on him when he was viewed as one of the best prospects in all of baseball.

It can also be true that at just 23 years old, Rosario has shown more than enough to potentially be part of the Mets' solution going into 2020 and beyond. Definitely not up there with Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, or Michael Conforto, but in the conversation nonetheless.

Mets lose in extras again 00:01:49
Mickey Callaway, Dominic Smith, Amed Rosario and Jacob deGrom on Smith's 10th inning error that led to the Mets 1-0 loss

For the second straight night in San Francisco, a pitchers' duel carried the ball game into extra innings. And while Friday's game didn't last 16 innings like the previous night, it ended in a loss just as deflating.

In the bottom of the 10th inning, with two runners on, Jacob Rhame forced a weak pop up to shallow left field off the bat of Pablo Sandoval. With Dominic Smith coming in and Amed Rosario drifting out, there was a brief moment of hesitation Smith's part, and just like that, the ball dropped to the grass and a hustling Alex Dickerson scored all the way from first base, handing the Mets a 1-0 loss

Smith was charged with an error on the game-ending play.

Mets suffer another tough loss 00:00:54
Jacob deGrom struck out 10 over 7 stellar innings of work but Dom Smith's error in the 10th dealt the Mets another heartbreaking loss, 1-0

The Mets wasted another gem from Jacob deGrom, and the game's only run scored on a Dominic Smith error as the Giants beat the Mets 1-0 in 10 innings. >> Box score

Five things to know about Friday's game

1) In the bottom of the ninth inning of a scoreless game, the Mets turned the ball to Jacob Rhame. Coming off of his one-game suspension, Rhame walked two batters in the inning, but with two away, Joe Panik struck out to send the game into extra innings.The Mets stuck with Rhame to start the 10th. After walking Alex Dickerson to start the inning, Pablo Sandoval blooped a ball to left, and after Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith had some miscommunication, the ball fell in for an error charged to Smith, allowing Dickerson to score the winning run all the way from first base.

2) Jacob deGrom dazzled through seven innings on Friday night. Though the Mets couldn't give him any run support, deGrom was as dominant as he's been all season, allowing just three hits while striking out 10. He allowed just one extra-base hit, a double to Kevin Pillar in the fifth. DeGrom was pulled after 108 pitches, 74 of which was strikes. He also passed Ron Darling for sixth place on the Mets' franchise strikeout list.

Pete Alonso moonshot in 8th 00:00:19
Pete Alonso had a no-doubt home run in the 8th inning for his 31st this year. It hit the 3rd deck at Target Field in Minnesota.

The Twins may have gotten on the board first, but Amed Rosario tied it up quickly in the top of the third. 

In his first at-bat of the day, Rosario took a Martin Perez cutter over the left field fence to make it a 1-1 game....

The Mets (42-51, 15.0 GB in NL East) take on the Twins (58-34, 6 GA in AL Central) in the opening game of a brief, two-game series on Tuesday at 8:10 p.m. 

Mets notes

The Mets are returning to Target Field for the first time since 2013, where they took all three games from the Twins that season. It took two visits to complete the series six years ago, as April weather in Minnesota forced a postponement and a return trip to complete the series in August... The Mets split a two-game series against the Twins at Citi Field earlier this season, but have won eight of their last nine games against them dating back to 2013... Amed Rosario is batting .287/.317/.431 with 11 doubles, four triples, three home runs, 24 RBI and nine walks in 50 games on the road this season... Coming off homers in back-to-back games for the first time since 2017, Robinson Cano is slashing .395/.422/.558 over his last 11 contest... Jeff McNeil's .366 batting average on the road is tops in all of baseball.

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario was not in the starting lineup in Sunday's 6-2 win against the Marlins, one day removed from an apparent lack of hustle on a fly ball. 

There were mixed messages as to why Adeiny Hechavarria started at shortstop over Rosario for the rubber match.

Prior to the game, manager Mickey Callaway told reporters that Rosario had the day off, however, Wayne Randazzo said multiple times that Callaway informed him that Rosario was benched for not running out a fly ball in the eighth inning on Saturday.

Now that Brodie Van Wagenen has made his concession speech, admitting that his "come get us" bravado resulted in "they came and got us," the Mets can officially move on to the brainstorming portion of the schedule.

That is, everything they do over the final two and a half months should be with a vision of 2020 and beyond in mind, rather than trying to squeeze the most possible wins out of a lost season. 

Mostly that means getting answers to as many questions about the future of this team as possible. I'd start with these 10:

I wanna believe. But, despite what Mickey Callaway has told reporters, I know it's very unlikely the Mets will claw their way back into the Wild Card race.

Therefore, if Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen -- who addressed the media Friday -- concludes that the Mets will again finish with a losing record, he will give serious thought to trading more than just a few players this summer.

The fact is, while some on this roster helped get the Mets to a World Series in 2015, most were not part of that squad. And those that were on that team are either due for major increases in salary or they're about to be or will be free agents very soon.

Brodie Van Wagenen
Brodie Van Wagenen

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen will speak with reporters before the team opens the second half of the season against the Marlins on Friday night in Miami.

With the Mets at 40-50 and the trade deadline less than three weeks away, here are five questions Van Wagenen should be asked...


What is the trade deadline strategy?

With the Mets not in contention, the expectation is that pending free agent Zack Wheeler will be traded. Also on the block should be fellow pending free agents Todd Frazier and Jason Vargas. But what is Van Wagenen's strategy beyond selling off the obvious pieces?

Teams have recently come calling about Noah Syndergaard, with SNY's Andy Martino reporting that a trade at some point feels inevitable. While it seems likelier that Syndergaard -- who isn't eligible for free agency until after the 2021 season -- could be moved after the season, would Van Wagenen pull the trigger now if he's blown away? What about dangling pieces like Seth Lugo and Dominic Smith? And is there any chance the Mets would go full rebuild and deal Jacob deGrom?

In making calls for a Wilson Ramos column last week, I heard a comment from a scout that in some ways summed up Brodie Van Wagenen's misguided attempt at assembling a win-now team in his first attempt as a GM.

"The Mets need to figure out who they are," the scout said.

He explained that for a team that believed its strength was a dominant starting rotation, the Mets needed a defense-first catcher who could enhance the abilities of the starting pitchers -- not a defensive liability like Ramos.

It was a crazy scene of events on Saturday night at Citi Field when Todd Frazier and Mickey Callaway were both ejected in the fifth inning following Jake Arrieta hitting Frazier with a pitch. 

Frazier hasn't liked being hit by the Phillies this season, which is why he threw down his bat and traded words with Arrieta has he walked to first base. Home plate umpire Tripp Gibson issued a warning to both benches following the play, but Frazier continued to argue it, which caused his ejection. 

The feud didn't finish when the game was over, though, as Arrieta said, "If Frazier's not happy about it, he can come see me. I'll put a dent in his skull."

The Mets considered having prized shortstop Amed Rosario get work in center field last summer. 

However, despite the need in center field last season, Rosario did zero work in the outfield. And he didn't see any work there this Spring Training either. 

But here we are again, with manager Mickey Callaway saying earlier this week that the team is again considering Rosario in the outfield.

Mets lose to Braves 7-2 00:01:17
New York Mets kept it close until the 6th inning when Josh Donaldson broke the 2-2 tie with a home run.

Things fell apart for Steven Matz and the Mets in the sixth inning on Wednesday in Atlanta, as they fell to the Braves 7-2.  >> Box score

5 things to know from Wednesday's game...

1) The Braves jumped on Matz right out of the gates. In the first inning, Dansby Swanson roped a single to center, followed by a two-run shot from Freddie Freeman. The Mets had given Matz an early 1-0 lead, but the lefty couldn't shut down the Braves in the bottom half of the first. He rebounded to keep the Braves quiet for the next four innings, but a Josh Donaldson two-run home run broke a tie and gave the Braves the lead for good.

After an ugly loss in which their all-too obvious flaws were exposed, the Mets suddenly find themselves 8.5 games behind the streaking Braves, and perhaps on the precipice of another lost season.

In June. Again.

Last year they went 5-21 in June to make the rest of the season feel more like an exercise in garbage time. This month hasn't spun out of control quite yet, as the Mets are 6-9 as of Tuesday. But at 34-38 they are only a few games better than their record at this time last year.
