The New York Mets are understandably wobbling. Travis d’Arnaud is on the disabled list. Steven Matz missed his scheduled start in Colorado over the weekend due to elbow soreness. David Wright and Curtis Granderson, the Mets No. 1 and 2 hitters, are slumping. Matt Harvey has been ineffective — and doesn’t know why.
Warthen first. The Mets pitching coach offered a handful of possibilities, but no definitive answer.
Before the Mets can “turn the page” on 2015, they will have it shoved down their throats one more time when the Royals raise their World Series flag during the pre-game ceremony tonight at Kaufmann Stadium.
“That will sting a little bit,” said David Wright. “I know when I look back on it, it sucks to come up just short … but at some point you’ve got to turn the page. It’s 2016, it means nothing now.”
