MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap September 30: Only one more of these to go

Terry Collins began 2017 with more losses than any other New York Mets manager. Regardless of what happens tomorrow, this year will be Collins’ worst performance in Queens.

Game recap September 27: Only three more of these to go

So […]

Game recap September 24: Only seven more of these to go

WHO WON: It was…not the Mets WHAT HAPPENED, ONE MISTAKE: Sunday was one of those typical Jacob deGrom starts.
