The Mets are off tonight and will play a double header on Saturday due to Hurricane Harvey.
Yesterday, nothing went right for the Mets. Jacob deGrom was shaky and the Mets offense found no success against Robert Stephenson. Brandon Nimmo got a hit and RBI in the loss. His OBP is up to .368 and wRC+ is at an even 100.
The big news late last night was Justin Verlander getting traded to the Houston Astros for three prospects.
