Stanton keeps mashing the Mets

With another homer on Wednesday, Giancarlo Stanton came away with two long balls in the three-game series with the Mets, bringing his career tally against them to 35. Only one player has hit more homers against a single opponent since Stanton entered the league in 2010. Meanwhile, Stanton has been nearly as effective against the Nationals.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Mets C Travis d'Arnaud's home run was the 5,690th HR in MLB this season. That's 4 shy of breaking the record for HR in a season set in 2000.

If you can't say something nice ... so, umm, Matt Harvey's return from the DL could have gone better so far. He gave up 12 hits and seven runs in just four innings to the Marlins -- including Giancarlo Stanton's 55th home run. That's 21 runs in 14.1 innings since his his return and you wonder: Does pitching this poorly make it more likely or less likely that he'll be back with the Mets in 2018? The Mets may not want him, but his trade value is as low as it can go right now.
