MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap July 18: Well, that escalated quickly

I must admit, after the weekend series against Colorado, I was still holding out hope. There’s enough baseball left for anything to happen. However, it’s time to accept the facts, the main being that this Mets team just isn’t equipped to rattle off the 10 or 15 wins needed to thrust themselves back into contention. […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies

Phillies series preview June 30-July 2

It feels like everytime I step forward to write a series preview, the Mets are on the verge of pulling you back in. This club is 10.5 games behind the NL East leading Washington Nationals and 9.5 games behind the second Wild Card spot currently occupied by the Colorado Rockies. But rather than submitting to […]

MLB: New York Mets at Los Angeles Dodgers

Game recap June 19: Weird baseball

Baseball is weird. On a night that Clayton Kershaw, the de facto best pitcher in baseball, was staked to a 7-0 lead, we saw a below average team claw their way back into a game that they had no business clawing back into. Unfortunately, the Mets still came up empty, dropping 10-6  to the Los […]

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets

Game recap May 29: Gsellman saves the day

If the Mets have any hope of turning around their injury plagued 2017 season, now is the time to get going. Yes, it’s only May, but playing yourself into a hole can sink even the best teams. We saw the 2016 Astros go on a historic tear to close the season, but because of their […]

Game recap May 15: Don’t be surprised, don’t be anything

Well, if you had any hopes of the Mets washing away an embarrassing sweep against the Brewers with a victory in Arizona last night, you went to sleep disappointed. The Mets dropped their fifth game in a row after losing to the Diamondbacks 7-3. Panic City seems to be in full effect, as the Amazins’ continue […]

MLB: San Francisco Giants at New York Mets

Game recap May 9: Righting the ship

Thanks to the media circus following Matt Harvey, one could hardly tell that the Mets are becoming one of the hotter teams in baseball right now. Winning eight of their last 11, including a 6-1 tilt against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night, the Mets have righted the ship and injected life back into a […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap April 5: Never say die

I have to say, with Rafael Montero on the mound tonight, I did not have high expectations about this game. Coming into their Cinco de Mayo matchup, the Marlins held a 5-2 edge over the Mets in 2017, with the Amazins’ only real triumph being outlasting the Fish in a 16-inning marathon back in April. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game Recap May 1: 24 Hours with Michael Conforto and Jerry Blevins

Sunday 4/30 3:20 p.m.: Just got back from my Sunday softball doubleheader. The Mets are losing 13-5. Guess I’m not watching today. 5:53 p.m.: Final score of today’s game against the Nationals was 23-5. If I didn’t have to recap Monday’s game, I almost wouldn’t watch out of principle. Also, how has upper management not […]
