An emotional night for Mets' Flores

"When I came up to hit [in the 7th] I heard everybody cheering," Wilmer Flores said. "I said, why? There's no reason. I thought [a trade] was the only reason. I was sad, being with the Mets forever, and all my teammates here. That's why I got emotional."

The deal that was, then wasn't

Around 9 p.m. ET, Mets SS Wilmer Flores and RHP Zack Wheeler were reportedly on their way to Milwaukee in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez. Around 11 p.m. ET, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the trade "has not and will not transpire." Wait, what?
