MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Mets

Game recap July 6: Grand finale

Most of America has been celebrating the Fourth of July all week, and on Friday night the Mets provided their own fireworks complete with a grand finale.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Dom Smith’s Last Best Shot

The Adrian Gonzalez experiment officially reached its conclusion Sunday night when the Mets released the veteran following their 2-0 series finale win over the Yankees.
