When We Last Met
The Mets lost two of three just before the All-Star Break.
It’s Literally a 10-Day DL
Mets: Yoenis Cespedes left the game Saturday with a hip injury and sat out Sunday, but the Mets claim he’ll be ready for the series opener.
Cardinals: Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty were both placed on the disabled list over the weekend with various maladies.
“You’re always looking to see what transpires over the next seven to 10 days. But I think we’re at the point in the season where things would have to go exceedingly well for us to realistically change direction,” Sandy Alderson said Friday about the trade deadline.
