Even-steven: Mets, Nats expect long battle

The Mets rode a dominant outing from left-hander Steven Matz to a 2-0 victory Wednesday afternoon to take two out of three games from the Nationals at Nationals Park.

Familia sets Mets' mark with nailbiting save

Jeurys Familia has spent his past year building a resume as one of the best closers in Mets history. When he escaped a two-on, no-outs jam Wednesday to seal a 2-0 win over the Nationals, Familia set a franchise record with his 32nd consecutive regular-season save conversion dating back to last season, passing Billy Wagner's 31 straight from 2006-07.

What Mets Can Do Internally and Externally to Fix First Base

The Lucas Duda injury coupled with Travis D’Arnaud being already sidelined leaves a gaping hope at the bottom of the Mets lineup. In Tuesday’s loss to Washington, the bottom four of the order were Eric Campbell, Kevin Plawecki, Ty Kelly and the pitcher. You could make the case that those are three AAA bats and the pitcher rounding out the lineup. The Mets options are limited...

Possible First Base Options for the Mets

The New York Mets now have a hole in their lineup, as first baseman Lucas Duda was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a stress fracture in his lower back. At this point, it is unclear how long Duda will be sidelined with the injury, but with a lack of internal options, the Mets might be forced to try to find someone to fill the gap elsewhere to fill the void until Duda is able...

Noah Syndergaard is the Ace of the New York Mets

In Major League Baseball, the term “ace” is frequently used to describe a teams number one pitcher. The only issue is every team has a number one starter in the rotation, but not every team has an “ace.” An ace is shutdown. An ace is a guy that can take the ball at any given time and dominate.
