My trip to Indianapolis on Monday was mostly disappointing. Yoan Moncada went 1-5 with a single. Lucas Giolito gave up 5 runs in 5 innings and struggled with his control (4 walks). Both are top 10 prospects and could develop into major league stars—although I'm growing more skeptical of Giolito—but they didn't show much on Monday.
Matt Harvey came clean yesterday, admitting that he made embarrassing decisions last weekend. After initially floating rumors that he would file a grievance with the Players Association, Harvey changed his tune and took sole responsibility for staying out late on Cinco de Mayo. Joel Sherman writes today about the Mets and Harvey needing each other more than ever.
The worst team in baseball is...the San Francisco Giants. Who saw that coming at the beginning of the year? And lest you think that the Giants' 12-23 record is unlucky, their -69 run differential is also worst in baseball.
