Madden: Mets GM Sandy Alderson has to make some brave moves to get his team back in NL East contention

It took a three-year maturation process, but there they stand today, Foltynewicz and Newcomb at the top of the Braves’ rotation, a combined 12-6 with a 2.52 ERA, along with Teheran and another budding phenom, 2015 first-round pick Mike Soroka (2.57 ERA for his first four major league starts), who no-hit the Mets for six innings Wednesday. The overall 3.84 ERA of the Braves starting rotation ranks sixth in the NL while their bullpen, populated with castoffs from other teams, closer Aroldis Vizcaino (2.03, 12/14 saves) and set-ups, Dan Winkler (0.99), Shane Carle (2.14), Jesse Biddle, are 32-1 while leading after the eighth inning, fifth best in the NL.
