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."

Mets big bats power 14-4 win 00:01:31
Dominic Smith gave the Mets the lead in the seventh inning, but Pete Alonso's monster home run wowed in the eighth in the 14-4 win.

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 fall 8-4 in Miami 00:01:23
Wilson Ramos and Todd Frazier provided the runs in the 8-4 loss to Miami, but NY dropped the first game after the All-Star break.

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

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.

It's been a weird and dramatic past few days for the Mets. However, despite the colorful headlines and sky-is-falling public reaction, the team sits just 4.5 games back in a Wild Race where no team is showing signs of breaking from the pack.

It's June 26, most teams have played nearly half of their games this season and only two NL teams are more than five games away from the final Wild Card spot. In addition, of the other teams fighting for the Wild Card, just one has won more than six of their past 10 games (with four having played at or below .500, including the Mets).

The Brewers and Phillies -- the top two teams in the Wild Card race -- each have lost seven of their past 10 games. Also, they both have a losing record on the road this season. The Rockies, who are tied with the Phillies for the second Wild Card spot, are 5-5 over their past 10 games and also have a losing road record. As a result, it is very, very difficult to gauge how most of the league will handle the July 31 trade deadline.

Mets lose 13-7 to Phillies 00:01:31
The Mets lost 13-7 to the Phillies on Monday. Matz continued to struggle in Philly while Ramos, Conforto, Frazier and Smith all homered.

The Mets went back-and-forth with the Phillies for five innings but things dismantled in the fifth as Philadelphia scored seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings to hand the Mets a 13-7 loss. >> Box score

Five things to know from Monday's game

1) Steven Matz continues to struggle at Citizens Bank Park. The southpaw had his worst start since he last took the mound in Philadelphia on April 16 when he allowed six runs and failed to get out of the first inning. Matz went a little longer this time but the result was nearly the same. He gave up seven runs on 10 hits and three walks, including three home runs. It was the second straight start in which he has allowed at least five runs, something he had only done once in his previous nine.

Callaway not happy after loss 00:00:26
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway isn't happy that the Mets dropped below the Nationals in the standings after 7-2 loss to Braves

A controversial coaching decision swung the momentum back into Atlanta's favor on Wednesday night.

With the game tied 2-2 in the top of the sixth inning, the Mets started a one-out rally. J.D. Davis and Todd Frazier notched a pair of singles, putting the Mets in prime position to take the lead.

Wilson Ramos then looped a single to right field, and with Braves right fielder Charlie Culberson playing the ball on a hop, Mets third base coach Gary DiSarcina aggressively waved Davis home. The throw beat Davis in plenty of time, and despite a leaping effort from the Mets' left fielder, he was out at home plate.

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.

Mets squeak by with 8-7 win 00:01:38
New York Mets second baseman Jeff McNeil makes a great throw to home plate to nail the runner and seal the victory.

Noah Syndergaard left the game with an apparent leg injury, while Pete Alonso slammed another home run in the Mets' 8-7 win over the Cardinals Saturday night. >> Box score

Six things to know from Saturday's game...

1) Syndergaard's night got off to a bumpy start, as Dexter Fowler followed up his three-run shot last night with a solo home run off of Syndergaard in the top of the first inning. He eventually settled down and pitched into the seventh inning, but after allowing a leadoff single, Syndergaard grabbed at the back of his right leg and was pulled from the game. He limped to the dugout with members of the training staff. His injury was later announced as a right hamstring strain.

Here's what went down on Friday, in case you missed it:


After blowing the save in Thursday night's suspended game, Edwin Diaz returned for the 10th inning to pitch again only to allow another run and take the loss as well. In the regularly scheduled game, it was Jeurys Familia who cost the Mets, blowing a one-run lead in the eighth by allowing four runs, including two home runs, in a 9-5 loss.

Cards outslug Mets 00:01:09
Mets pitching surrendered 4 home runs as the Cardinals, after winning the suspended game earlier, also took the scheduled contest, 9-5

After losing the end of Thursday's suspended game, which was blown by Edwin Díaz, the Mets lost their regularly scheduled game Friday to the Cardinals, 9-5, thanks to Jeurys Familia's eighth-inning implosion. >> Box score

Five things to know from Friday's game...

1) Familia entered in the eighth with a 5-4 lead gave up four runs. On his second pitch, he gave up a solo homer to Mets nemesis Paul DeJong, who drove in the game-winning run in the suspended game. DeJong has eight homers in 75 at-bats against the Mets. Familia then gave up a three-run homer to Dexter Fowler with two outs. It's the second time in his career Familia allowed two homers in a game, the first coming this season on April 6 against Washington. He's allowed five homers this season after giving up three all of last season. The four runs allowed increased Familia's ERA to 6.91 for the season as his return to the Mets continues to be disastrous.

Mets notes

The Mets entered the ninth inning with a 4-2 lead but as rain began pouring down the groundscrew began to roll out the tarp. The Mets convinced them to hold off so they can try to finish the game, but that decision backfired and Edwin Diaz blew the save. He allowed a leadoff walk, got the next two batters out before allowing a two-out RBI single to Kolten Wong and a double to Harrison Bader to tie the game. ... The Mets will have Todd FrazierWilson Ramos, and Amed Rosario up in the ninth against Andrew Miller.

The Mets are likely about to be close to full-strength, with Brandon Nimmo and Robinson Cano both in the middle of rehab assignments with Triple-A Syracuse and nearing returns to the big league roster.

And with the return of two everyday players will come two 25-man roster moves.

Here's how things could shake out and who the odd-men-out could be...

Mets on sloppy game vs. Yankees 00:01:54
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway is certain the Mets will battle back to over .500 and then take off and surprise people.

Just three weeks ago, Todd Frazier was the owner of a .203 batting average and another Mets hitter who, up to that point, had seriously underperformed. He had just three multi-hit showings through 22 games. Essentially, he was the same player who finished last season with a .213 average.

In the three weeks and 19 games since then, he's gathered seven multi-hit performances. Simply, he's experienced a serious turnaround in a relatively short amount of time. More so, he's in the midst of a hot stretch that has come to define his play in recent years.

Though the Mets have scuffled their way through much of the season, they've played better of late. They took two of three on the road against the lowly San Francisco Giants, and they surprisingly swiped two of three from the Colorado Rockies. Frazier is a big reason why...

Mets crushed 12-5 by Yankees 00:02:02

A promising start turned into a nightmarish finish as the Mets lost to the Yankees, 12-5, in Game 1 of their doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium >> Box score

Five things to know from Tuesday's game...

1) In a game the Mets led 4-1 heading into the bottom of the third inning, things got ugly fast. Done in by poor defense, bad pitching by Zack Wheeler, and some bloop hits mixed in with blasted ones, the game was 9-4 Yankees by the time the fifth inning was over. Overall, Wheeler allowed nine runs (six earned) on 10 hits while walking one and striking out six in 4.2 innings.
