MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game Recap August 2: Flexen Their Muscles

Last night, the Mets rode a classic Coors Field offensive eruption to overcome a 5-0 deficit and knock off the wild-card-leading Rockies in a fun come-from-behind win. Chris Flexen got off to a decent start, wiggling out of tight spots in both of the first two innings. He worked around doubles in each inning and didn’t allow a run […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game Recap July 19: Playing for Pride

At this point in the season, wins and losses for the Mets don’t hold much meaning; they’re not going to get back in the race, and I think even most of the players would admit to that now. So as enjoyable as last night’s 7-3 win may have been, it really didn’t mean much towards anything. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game Recap July 3: Two Bad Bullpens, But Only One Bad Team

While the Mets’ 2017 season has basically just been one endless descent in the standings, the one argument constantly raised in favor of the Mets still having a chance has been the much-maligned Nationals’ bullpen, which has been the anchor holding the team down, and the only reason they’re still in the same galaxy as […]

Game Recap June 28: A Breath of Fresh Air

The struggles of the Mets’ starting pitching this season has been well-documented. Going into last night, the team’s starting pitcher ERA was 5.05, the third-worst mark in the majors. This is horrendous and unexpected, but we’ve talked about it enough. But I also stumbled upon something else yesterday. Do you want to see something frightening? […]

MLB: New York Mets at Los Angeles Dodgers

Game Recap June 22: Pill Can’t Alleviate Mets’ Woes

The Mets have had a rash of underperformance in their starting rotation lately. And last night, they turned to Tyler Pill against the Dodgers in hopes he could turn things around for them. But Pill was not effective, because he’s not a very good pitcher. Starting not-very-good pitchers is fine once in a while, but it’s […]

Game Recap June 14: Actually Entertaining Baseball

Wednesday seemed like it was just another day in the life of the 2017 New York Mets. The day started out with the news that everyone’s favorite relief pitcher, Rafael Montero, was returning to New York to re-join the Mets. A little later on, things got even worse when the corresponding roster move was announced. Josh […]

MLB: New York Mets at Texas Rangers

Game Recap June 7: Good Things Can Happen To The Mets, Too

The 2017 season has largely been a practice of Murphy’s Law for the Mets to this point. And their failures have been well-documented; I don’t really need to rehash everything that’s gone wrong. I don’t need to talk about the starting rotation. I don’t need to talk about how frighteningly close they are to Paul Sewald, Closer. I […]

Johan Santana

No-Han, Five Years Later: Where Are They Now?

Today, we celebrate the five-year anniversary of one of the most unforgettable moments in New York Mets history. On June 1, 2012, Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in franchise history, 51 years and 8,020 games into the team’s existence. The entire game was a heart-stopping thrill ride, and one of the most incredible and […]
