Final Score: Phillies 6, Mets 4-Error and injury

A short bench got shorter. The Mets dropped the series finale to the Phillies with a sloppy 6-4 loss. Noah Syndergaard started off with a scintillating first, but some crucial fielding mistakes behind him cost him dearly in the early innings. Jay Bruce got his first start at first base in a Met uniform and fielded a ground ball cleanly, but some miscommunication between Neil Walker and Noah Syndergaard led to a throwing error at first which cost the Mets a run. The next inning Asdrubal Cabrera committed an error which led to a couple of runs and put the Mets behind early. Syndergaard was...

Mets trade rumors: Phillies ‘came closest’ to Jay Bruce trade

Philadelphia made a run at Bruce this winter, when the Mets made him available. The Phillies came closest to acquiring Mets outfielder Jay Bruce in a trade this winter, according to Marc Carig of Newsday. Obiously, no deal materialized, leading the Mets to keep Bruce through the offseason. Philadelphia’s strong pursuit comes at least as a mild surprise, as the Orioles were consistently mentioned as a suitor for Bruce and the Giants were known to be discussing the possibility as well. Philadelphia decided to sign free agent Michael Saunders instead of pulling the trigger on a Bruce...

Mets activate Jeurys Familia, demote Rafael Montero and Sean Gilmartin, transfer David Wright to 60-day DL, recall Kevin Plawecki

The Mets have made some roster moves. With Jeurys Familia eligible to return from his suspension and injuries to Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud, the Mets announced a flurry of roster moves today before tonight’s game against the Phillies.

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Jay Bruce powered the Mets to a much-needed win over the Phillies.

Mets vs. Phillies Recap: What losing streak?

Bruce goes deep twice, and the Mets lose two players to injury Since Thursday night’s marathon game in Miami, each Met game has looked shockingly alike: close until late, when a poor managerial decision, bullpen arm, or over-the-hill third baseman makes an error that costs the team a heartbreaker. It looked like last night might be one of those nights again, but, against all odds, the Mets persevered and took the second game of the series from the Phillies, 5-4. Win 5-4 Robert Gsellman, who had not looked like the same pitcher from 2016 so far this season, looked...
