Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has been in a much better mood this week, and whether it’s because he doesn’t have to field a dozen question about Carson Wentz’s return, or because he has his QB back in the first place, let’s just say the coach is smiling wider these days. The team is back at practice on Wednesday and there’s a lot of work to be done to not only get Wentz ready for his first game of the season, but to figure out what they are going to do with a banged up group of receivers and...

Mets shut out by Phillies as Syndergaard struggles

The Mets lost the series finale in Philadelphia in uninspiring fashion. With the way the Mets have played over the past few weeks, it wouldn’t be fair to say they’ve been mailing it in. But if you’ve been mailing it in as a fan, well, you didn’t miss much in the team’s loss to the Phillies on Wednesday night. In the last meeting between the two teams in 2018, the Mets just didn’t do much. Aside from Amed Rosario, who went 3-for-4 and is now hitting .260/.298/.393 on the season, the offense just didn’t do much. Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, and Brandon Nimmo had one hit apiece, but...
