Mets Morning News for June 12, 2018

Your Tuesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links Meet the Mets With the Mets apparently set on not calling up Peter Alonso this season, and Adrian Gonzalez cut, Dominic Smith appears to have the rest of 2018 to prove he can play first base at the major league level. Jay Bruce is mad about the slump he’s in and wants to do better. Jake Dickey wonders whether the Mets would be any better off rebuilding with the current regime still in charge. Kevin Kernan doesn’t think trading Syndergaard or deGrom is a good idea. While Tim Tebow is still far from a great...

Mets are counting on major improvement from Dominic Smith

Dominic Smith wasn’t exactly killing it at Triple-A Las Vegas, but will now be expected to help stabilize first base for the Mets. Adrian Gonzalez’s release following the Mets’ 2-0 victory over the Yankees in the Subway Series finale Sunday left the bulk of the first-base duties to Smith, who had a pedestrian .713 OPS...

Final Score: Yankees 4, Mets 1—Again? Yes, again.

Jacob deGrom made one mistake all night, but it was enough for him to take the loss in the series opener. Brandon Nimmo led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run and that was the only run the Mets’ anemic offense would manage all night, once again giving Jacob deGrom virtually no room for error. The errors came on the part of the Mets’ defense. In the top of the sixth inning, Masahiro Tanaka hit a grounder that Adrian Gonzalez botched to put Tanaka on base. Gleyber Torres then hit a single and deGrom walked Brett Gardner to load the bases. Aaron Judge hit a fly ball...

Final Score: Orioles 2, Mets 1—Offense has flown the coop

The Mets managed only three hits against the Orioles. Alex Cobb has had a dreadful year for the Orioles so naturally he shut the Mets down on their way to a 2-1 loss. Cobb took a no-hitter into the fifth inning when the Mets collected their first hit and only run. The struggling Jay Bruce got the rally started with a lucky single and Kevin Plawecki followed with a double. After Adrian Gonzalez popped up, Jose Bautista brought the run home with a sacrifice fly. Unfortunately the Mets were already trailing at the time since Jason Vargas got off to another shaky start. He allowed two runs to...
