Morning Briefing: Goodbye Grandy!

Tonight, the New York Mets will take on the Miami Marlins at 7:10 p.m. on Pix 11. Rafael Montero has the ball for New York and will face Vance Worley.

Last night, a rain delay pushed the start time of the game to 9 p.m. Chris Flexen struggled in the second and third but was decent overall. He has certainly been progressing well since making the leap straight from Double-A Binghamton. The Mets offense had virtually nothing going all night behind the young right-hander.
