MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap May 21: Ace Jason Vargas

There are few things that bring me more dread than the thought of recapping a game that features Jason Vargas starting for the Mets. The Amazins’ prized free agent acquisition has been awful in 2018; in three starts, he’s surrendered multiple runs in the first inning of each game. It’s no secret that the Mets, […]

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

Game recap May 7: That’s what winning looks like

Boy did the Mets need that one. Entering last night, the team was in a pretty noticeable tailspin, dropping all six games of last week’s homestand. On Monday, they resembled the explosive team we had the privilege of watching during the first few weeks of the season. New York rebounded in Cincinnati, defeating the Reds […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap April 16: The Mets never change

The New York Mets have been spectacular in 2018. Entering Monday night, the Amazins’ sat at 12-2, healthily atop the National League East. After completing a sweep against the Nationals only eight days ago, the Mets had the perfect opportunity to deal an early season death blow to their hated rivals. The game began with […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 9: Is this too good to be true?

After the New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 4-2 Monday night, a tweet by The Ringer’s Sean Fennessey caught my eye and summed up exactly how I was feeling. “This Mets season feels so good already, which likely means it will go bad in fantastic, operatic fashion. Like ‘Team plane flies into an alternate […]

MLB: New York Mets at Seattle Mariners

The case for Jay Bruce 2.0

This past season sucked. That may be blunt, but it’s probably the best way to summarize the 2017 Mets. By way of poor play and injuries, fans watched the front office dismantle a team that was only a year removed from back-to-back playoff appearances and two years removed from a pennant. They said goodbye to key pieces […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap September 25: Only five more of these to go

With less than one week remaining, we can finally say goodbye and good riddance to the season. The 2017 campaign left Mets fans with nothing but frustration, despair, and kept everyone wondering if it was really possible for things to get worse. Ravaged by injuries, we were deprived of the opportunity to watch a Mets team […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 5: When the Phillies play like the Nationals

Good news, everyone. If you were one of those delusional fans who were counting on the Mets to make a miracle run and power their way back into the NL East race, you can finally put those aspirations to rest. The Mets were officially eliminated in their divisional race after being shellacked by the last-place […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 4: Death, taxes, and crushing the Phillies

There are only a few true certainties in life. Death, taxes, and the Mets thrashing the Phillies. That’s just what the Amazins’ did in Flushing on Monday, rebounding from an abhorrent series against the Astros to defeat Philadelphia 11-7. The victory allowed the Mets to keep the grim reaper at the gate and stave off […]

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Game recap August 21: Pollock-ed

It’s been a whirlwind of a week for those following the orange and blue. First, we said goodbye to Curtis Granderson, who was shipped off to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed reliever Jacob Rhame. Granderson was not only a key component in the success this team has found over the last few […]
