MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Mets

Game Recap May 16: Bringers of rain

So it is technically my job to recap the Mets game yesterday to you, the reader, and talk about things you would care about reading. It is not my job to make it about myself, because you probably don’t care too much about me or my personal experiences. That said, I feel the best way I can fully convey the misery […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game Recap April 25: The St. Louis Blues

Yesterday, a day where a former elite pitcher refused to speak to the media about his move to the bullpen, and the day after a former top pitching prospect had another rocky start, continuing the unevenness that has defined his injury-laden career, another former top pitching prospect started for Mets, and got lit up, prolonging his struggles. In […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game Recap April 18: Redemption

The past few days have been a trying time in Metsland. After Monday’s heartbreaker in which the team blew a 6-1 lead in the eighth inning, followed by Tuesday’s frustrating loss, it was looking like the early-season mirage was over. The Mets were still the same old losers, and the Nationals still owned them. It was back […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 11: I don’t know what’s happening, but I like it

The New York Mets are the best team in baseball. With their 4-1 victory over the Marlins last night, they are tied with the Angels for the most wins in the league with 10, though the fighting Mike Trouts are 10-3, while New York is 10-1. So that means the Mets have a better winning percentage, which means […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap April 4: Is Facebook cool again?

I created my Facebook account in 2010, when it was the place where all the cool kids were; I could log in and see what all my friends were up to and what pages they were “becoming a fan” of and what their status updates were. Kids and adolescents could legitimately spend hours a day on Facebook […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

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

One week ago today, I set a trend. I had just finished writing a recap of a game I didn’t particularly care about, and was looking forward to the thought of not having to push myself through recaps of meaningless, monotonous games anymore (at least until next year). The games are boring, and they don’t mean […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game Recap September 20: Only 10 more of these to go

On Wednesday, the Mets lost 9-2 to the Marlins, who finished off a three-game sweep of the Mets in a series that hardly rustled leaves in the baseball world. For the Mets, the still-bad Rafael Montero made his 17th start of the season, which is just mind-blowing. Montero got roughed up in four innings, giving up […]
