Let’s Meet The Mets

I had a dream on Wednesday night/Thursday morning that I was Juan Lagares, and that I was just called up to the Mets from the minor leagues.

My dream started me off in the clubhouse — the big league clubhouse — meeting my teammates and getting all my gear and stuff immediately after I had arrived (I guess in New York?) after being recalled.

I also met the manager (but it wasn’t Terry Collins), and then met a bunch of my teammates before heading out to the field for batting practice.

And then, right before the game, my stupid girlfriend sent me a text message (ugh, girls) and woke me up from probably getting my first big league home run. And then I couldn’t fall back asleep because the world hates me, so I just woke up and forgot about the dream literally until right now as I’m writing this for you.

Anyways… here’s the latest on the Mets:

Jacob deGrom, Cy Young candidate? (Rising Apple).
Like we need the reminder that the Mets pitch really, really well and we are in trouble… the Rockies won’t actually see deGrom this series, it would seem, but he is pretty damn good (you know, that’s putting it lightly).

Mets’ path to playoffs will be particularly agonizing (New York Post).
I love New York media; even when things are going well, they’re going terribly.

Mets could skip Matt Harvey’s Sunday start (Sports Illustrated).
Not official yet, but this would be something! The Mets are trying to line up a rotation for the postseason and save some bullets for some of their very important starters, so perhaps the Rockies would benefit from that?
