Cold bats, hot seats the story as Nats visit Mets

Managers are rarely the focal point of a baseball series, especially one between two longtime rivals expected to battle each other for a division title this season. But the New York Mets and Washington Nationals are both a long way from looking like contenders, which is why Mickey Callaway and Dave Martinez are likely to be in the uncomfortable spotlight Monday night when the Mets host the Nationals in the opener of a four-game series.

Mets right-hander Drew Gagnon (1-0, 4.09 ERA) is expected to make his first start of the season when he opposes Nationals left-hander Patrick Corbin (4-1, 2.91).

Both teams continued their extended funks Sunday, when the Mets suffered a 3-0 loss to the host Miami Marlins and the Nationals fell to the visiting Chicago Cubs 6-5.
