  • The Mets’ defense made a handful of crucial mistakes that cost starter Kodai Senga two unearned runs and the bats remained silent, too, as the Philadelphia Phillies took the series opener 5-1

  • After the game, Senga took the blame, saying he “failed to execute” and “it’s something I have to work on”

  • But the big news happened in the second inning when the Mets traded Eduardo Escobar to the Los Angeles Angles

  • Francisco Lindor and Buck Showalter gave their reactions to the trade and Escobar posted a heartfelt message on social media to thank teammates and fans

  • SNY MLB Insider Andy Martino reported the Mets will absorb Escobar’s salary

  • And despite the trade, Lindor believes the Mets are still built to contend

  • At Triple-A Syracuse, Mark Vientos banged out a pair of hits in a win over Durham

  • Kevin Parada talked about improving his defense and working with Francisco Alvarez on The Mets Pod.

  • The Pod gang also discussed if changes were coming to the front office this offseason with David Stearns available

  • Showalter spoke pregame about the hope that the demotion to Triple-A gives Tylor Megill a chance to find command, consistency

  • The Mets Off Day Live crew wondered if NY could be deadline sellers and took a close look at Lindor’s recent success at the plate

  • Before Friday’s trade, Martino wrote about how taking on players with bad contracts  – like Patrick Corbin and Josh Donaldson – could be a path for the Mets to add bullpen help

  • Martino’s piece was then fodder for a debate on Baseball Night in NY
