Braves edge Mets 6-4 00:01:26
New York Mets scored two big runs in the 9th but the rally fell short with the bases loaded and the Mets drop another game in Atlanta.

The Mets fell to the Braves 6-4 on Wednesday night at SunTrust Park. >> Box score

Six Takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1) Steven Matz was tremendous for the Mets on Wednesday night. He got into some trouble in the second inning, allowing an RBI double to Ender Inciarte, but outside of that inning, he made easy work of the Braves' lineup. The lefty allowed just two hits, striking out five. His night came to a close after six innings and 79 pitches, a questionable decision by Mickey Callaway to turn things over to the pen. Matz also helped himself with two hits of his own.

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.

Five Takeaways from Tuesday's game...

1) Zack Wheeler entered the game fresh off of two tremendous outings, but Tuesday was simply not his night. The right-hander gave up a career-high 12 hits over 5.0 innings of work. Wheeler gave up two runs in the first, snapping his 15-inning scoreless streak, and was seemingly never able to find his groove. Ronald Acuna Jr. slammed his 34th home run of the season off of Wheeler in the fourth inning.

The Mets entered Monday's doubleheader against the Marlins with a chance to get above .500 for the first time since late-May, and they did just that -- in front of a raucous crowd at Citi Field.

Jacob deGrom was dominant in Game 1, and the Mets hit three homers in the seventh inning of Game 2 to erase a 4-2 deficit and get to 57-56 while pulling within 2.5 games of a playoff spot.

"When guys' shirts come off, it's probably a pretty good day," Mickey Callaway said. "So that was a good one."

The Mets have shocked everyone with their recent string of wins. Everyone except the guy on their own hot corner. 

New York is now 19-6 since the All-Star break and have won 13 of their last 14 games. They're currently riding a six-game winning streak. 

Mets third baseman Todd Frazier said he's not shocked about the turnaround, though. In fact, he expected it.

Ramos 3-run home run in 3rd 00:00:14
The Mets now lead the Marlins 4-0 after a 3-run home run by Wilson Ramos in the 3rd inning.

Scoring early has been a key to the Mets' recent success, and they were at it again on Tuesday night against the Marlins.

As Marlins starter Hector Noesi made his first major league appearance since 2015, the Mets jumped on him quickly. With two on and two out, Todd Frazier lined a ball to left field. Left fielder Jon Berti made a leaping attempt, but the ball glanced off his glove and fell in for a double, scoring the first run of the game.

Lost a bit in the shuffle of the Mets' 2019 season has been the remarkably consistent performance of J.D. Davis.

Acquired by Brodie Van Wagenen in the offseason for three prospects, Davis' path to playing time initially seemed blocked at the big league level.

His primary position of third base was covered by Todd Frazier. Davis played some first base with the Astros, but with Pete Alonso and Dominic Smith at first base in New York, that wasn't going to happen, either. His outfield experience only consisted of five games in left field in 2018, but that has increased with 30 games in left this season.

The Mets (51-55, 11.5 GB in NL East, 5 WCGB) take on the Chicago White Sox (46-58, 18.0 GB in AL Central, 13 WCGB) at Guaranteed Rate Field on Wednesday at 8:10 p.m. in the second game of a three-game series. 

The Mets enter the game on a five-game winning streak, their longest of the season and have won seven of their last 10. ... Amed Rosario leads the National League with a .368 batting average in the month of July and has reached base safely in 17 of his last 18 games. ...

Mets win 6th straight game 00:01:31
New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was sensational tossing 11 Ks. Todd Frazier and Michael Conforto led the way on offense in this 4-2 win.

The Mets' bats came to life in the ninth inning, leading to a 4-2 win over the White Sox, the team's sixth straight victory. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) Jacob deGrom continued his stellar pitching for the Mets while getting little run support from the team's lineup, an unfortunate trend this season when he starts. In seven innings of work, deGrom allowed one run on five hits. In total, deGrom fanned 11 batters, the seventh time this season and 39th time in his career he's reached double-digit strikeouts in a game. Overall, deGrom has at least eight strikeouts in 13 of his 22 starts this season.

Matz tosses gem in Mets win 00:01:05
Steven Matz tossed the first complete game of his career, a five-hit shutout, as the Mets blanked the Pirates, 3-0

The Mets shut out the Pirates 3-0 on Friday behind a spectacular start from Steven Matz and a pair of home runs. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) Steven Matz pitched his best game since returning to the Mets' rotation, and the best game of his entire young career. Matz was simply masterful, pitching into the eighth inning for the first time since August 2016. In a scoreless game in the top of the sixth inning, Matz allowed runners to reach first and third with one out, but he quickly forced Melky Cabrera into an easy 5-4-3 double play to end the threat.

Matz went the distance for the first time in his career, allowing just five hits while striking out seven on just 99 pitches. It was just the eighth time in Mets history that a pitcher threw a complete game on less than 100 pitches, with Johan Santana being the most recent to accomplish the feat in 2012.

Five takeaways from Friday's game

1) Jeff McNeil's three-run home run gave the Mets offense the shot in the arm that it needed early on in the game. It looked like it could be a long night offensively, after Pirates starter Dario Agrazal retired the first seven hitters he faced. But Amed Rosario tripled, then Zack Wheeler was hit by a pitch, giving McNeil a chance with runners on the corners and one out and his team trailing in the third inning, 1-0. The left-hander got a slider that he was able to lift just over the wall in right for his 10th homer of the year.

It didn't matter that the Mets took the field not even 14 hours after the completion of the previous night's game or that he only got "about three hours of sleep" -- Todd Frazier was ready to get to work.

The Mets third baseman has been struggling lately, hitting just .161 with only two home runs and three RBI over his last 15 games entering Thursday -- a stretch extending back before the All-Star Break -- but Frazier was determined to make a change, and his manager noticed.

"Usually, the reasons for success are reasons nobody knows," Mickey Callaway said. "But, he got up really early this morning and was in the cage at 7 a.m. before anybody got here. He felt like he and Chili [Davis] identified something after the game last night, and even though it was a noon game, he got out of bed and was hitting in the cage and watching video."

1) The Mets jumped on Padres pitcher Eric Lauer early, as his day only lasted 2.1 innings. All four of the Mets' runs came in the first inning. Wilson Ramos scored J.D. Davis on a sac fly for the game's first run, then Todd Frazier knocked in two more on a line-drive double to center field. Michael Conforto then scored Frazier on a soft ground ball to right field against the defensive shift, giving the Mets their fourth and final run of the game.

The Mets are willing to move most players on their roster, particularly free-agents-to-be like Zack Wheeler, Jason Vargas and Todd Frazier.

Of that group, the team is getting the least amount of action on Frazier, according to major league sources.

Frazier has fallen into an ill-timed slump, batting .167 in July. Although anything can change before the July 31 deadline, as of now he appears the most likely to stay put.

Mets fall 3-2 in extras 00:01:07
The Mets lost 3 out of 4 in extra innings against the Giants. Mike Yastrzemski hit a walk off home run in the 12th inning

The Mets lost for a third time in extra inning to the Giants on Sunday, 3-2. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Sunday's game

1) The Mets went 5-4 in their road trip following the All-Star break and the pitching staff has played well and while the offense has struggled. From the 3rd inning to the 11th, the Mets did not record a hit against the Giants on Sunday. Over the final two innings, the bats were once again silent. Robert Gsellman took the loss as he gave up the walk-off home run to Mike Yastrzemski. However, the inning prior, Gsellman entered the game and recorded three outs as Jeurys Familia walked two batters and was pulled in the 12th inning. From innings seven to 10, Justin Wilson (1 IP), Seth Lugo (2 IP) and Edwin Diaz (1 IP) held the Giants without a hit.

Smith happy to produce in win 00:01:22
New York Mets first baseman Dom Smith was happy he was able to knock in 4 RBIs after committing a game-ending error the night before.

A day after a costly error in the outfield, Dom Smith's bat led the way for the Mets in an 11-4 win over the Giants. >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game

1) Smith had a tough Friday evening in the outfield, but his fortunes have since changed drastically. After his costly error less than 24 hours earlier, Smith scored the first run of the game with a bomb of a solo home run, which went over the deepest part of Oracle Park, Triples Alley in right-center field. Smith then recorded his second RBI of the game on a single in the fourth inning. As the Mets were padding runs on late in the ninth inning, Smith added two more RBI, bringing his game total to four with a single. 

2) Smith was in the game early because Pete Alonso was not. Skipper Mickey Callaway gave Alonso the day off and started Smith at first base, despite Alonso's wishes to play. It paid off with Smith's early performance, but Alonso, despite not starting due to his rare day off, still found a way to contribute. Coming off the bench in the sixth inning, Alonso hit a 444-foot, three-home homer. Alonso reached 75 RBI on the season with the shot, a team rookie record.

The Mets have struggled to score runs through the first two games of their series with the Giants, pushing just two runs across in 26 innings.

But as they look to get the offense going on Saturday, they'll do so without Pete Alonso.

Dominic Smith will get the start at first base on Saturday against Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija, as Mickey Callaway looks to give his rookie first baseman a bit of a breather.

"I was talking to [Todd] Frazier the other day, just about his experience, and he said coming out of that Home Run Derby the year he did it, he was worn out. We kind of took it out of Pete's hands. We've got the righty going today, we've got the lefty tomorrow, give him a day and let him get after it tomorrow."

The Mets hit a bunch of homers and took advantage of lots of shoddy defense by the Twins to sweep their two-game set on Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota >> Box score

Five things to know about Wednesday's game

1) With two outs in the top of the eighth and New York leading, 5-3, the Twins gave the Mets a gift when left fielder Eddie Rosario dropped what should've been a routine fly out by Adeiny Hechavarria. Two runs scored on the error as the Mets extended their lead to 7-3. Jeff McNeil then followed with an RBI double before Dominic Smith's RBI single made it 9-3, New York. Pete Alonso -- who had gone 0-for-4 up to that point -- then demolished a 474 foot two-run homer to the second level of the upper deck in left field to make it 11-3. The Mets added three runs against Twins position player Ehire Adrianza in the ninth inning.

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.

Mets pitchers allowed three home runs as they fell to the Marlins 8-4 to start the second half. >> Box score

Five things to know from Friday's game

1) Jason Vargas' night got off to a strong start, as he retired the first six batters he faced. The lefty got into trouble in the third, though, after the Mets had just given him a 2-0 lead. Jorge Alfaro singled and stole second to start the inning, and he came around to score on a Miguel Rojas sac fly. Then, another former Met struck again, as Curtis Granderson lofted a two-run home run to give the Marlins the 3-2 lead. The next batter, Garrett Cooper, homered as well, staking the Marlins to a 4-3 lead. Vargas ended up going five innings for the Mets, allowing six earned runs.

Van Wagenen addresses media 00:02:46
New York Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen spoke to the media about the Mets' first half, looking into trades, and Mickey Callaway.

Talking before the Mets opened the second half of the season in Miami, Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said he is "incredibly disappointed" about where the team is and all but confirmed they will be sellers in advance of the July 31 trade deadline. 

"We have to face our reality," Van Wagenen said. "We have to be open-minded. We're gonna be thoughtful and measured in terms of what we do as we approach the deadline. ... our mission statement doesn't change."

That "mission statement" is about winning now and in the future, and that is something Van Wagenen said he is not abandoning. In other words, there will not be a full rebuild commencing before July 31.

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?

The Mets stumbled into the All-Star Game with a 40-50 overall record, and unless the team comes out of the break in a sprint, trade rumors will continue to swirl. Mets third baseman Todd Frazier knows that drill all too well.

At the 2017 trade deadline, Frazier landed in the Bronx with the Yankees from the Chicago White Sox. Frazier didn't go far as a free agent, landing with the Mets on a two-year deal. Now, that deal is expiring, the 33-year-old infielder will continue to see his named linked to trades out of Queens.

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.

Jeff McNeil said earlier on Monday that he was ready to be Pete Alonso's "hype man" during the Home Run Derby and he continued to hype Alonso up even after he had won.

McNeil was ecstatic for Alonso's feat, and while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. generated the most buzz during the Derby, McNeil made sure to stress this night belonged to his teammate. 

"The show Vlad put on was pretty incredible, but I think Pete put on a better on," McNeil said.

CLEVELAND -- Zack Wheeler has become a pitcher in high demand, and the Mets have now begun trade talks, according to major league sources. Among the teams who have been in contact are the Yankees and Red Sox, both of whom are interested in Wheeler.

The Braves and Cubs are two other possibilities for Wheeler. According to one source, there is significant interest in Wheeler. A trade is not believed to be close with any one suitor, but the Mets have shifted into a more aggressive sell mode.

Jason Vargas and Todd Frazier are also available. Noah Syndergaard isn't a total lock to stay, but it is far more likely that the Mets explore trading him again this winter, per sources.

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."

Jeff McNeil added four hits, Edwin Diaz pitched a scoreless ninth, and the Mets beat the Phillies 6-5 on Saturday. >> Box score

Six things to know from Saturday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard battled his way through five innings, but he didn't have his best stuff on Saturday. He allowed four earned runs on seven hits, including a pair of home runs to Jay Bruce and Maikel Franco in the top of the second inning, putting the Mets in an early 3-1 hole after Michael Conforto had given them a 1-0 lead.. Syndergaard finished his first half of the season with a 4.68 ERA.

2) McNeil, looking to become just the second Met ever to lead the majors in batting average at the All-Star break, helped his cause in a big way on Saturday, recording four more hits. McNeil now has four four-hit games on the season, and his league-leading batting average is up to .356

With the Mets effectively out of playoff contention, their next move is to pivot to trade talks about Zack Wheeler, as SNY reported last week.

The team would also love to rid themselves of Jason Vargas because of his lack of contrition about a recent assault threat, and they will see how other clubs value Todd Frazier.

In all likelihood, that will represent the totality of their action in advance of the July 31 trade deadline -- but the Mets know they would be remiss to not at least survey the market for Noah Syndergaard and Edwin Diaz.

Ever since last winter, when the Mets were talking about Syndergaard with the Marlins, Yankees and Padres, it's been clear that they're willing to move on if the right deal presents itself. Unfortunately, rivals confirm the obvious: Syndergaard's 4.56 ERA and injured list stint have left the Mets with a diminished trade chip.

From there, the Mets capitalized on their opportunities with two outs. Jeff McNeil had a two-run single to take the lead, and Pete Alonso's RBI double gave the Mets some insurance as well.

Mets react to blown save 00:01:32
The Mets gave up 5 runs in the 9th to fall 6-3 to the Phillies to complete the 4-game sweep. It was a tough road trip for NY.

The Mets' latest loss to the Phillies was simply debilitating. 

After the Phillies walked it off in a five-run bottom of the ninth, manager Mickey Callaway had to stand in front of the New York media to answer for the heartbreak. And he couldn't say much about how he and the team felt other than how tough it was to be up late in a game and lose yet again.

"The same as the others," he said about the loss. "It's tough to swallow. That's about all you can say about it."
