Game recap September 28: David Wright returns

The Mets were hammered in their series opener¬†against Miami on Friday night, but quite honestly, nobody really cared. David Wright appearing in a Major League baseball game for the first time since May 27, 2016, easily offset the disappointment of the Amazins’ 8-1 loss, and set the stage for what is sure to be a […]

Game recap September 21: A win for deGrom!

Jacob deGrom added to his Cy Young candidacy in D.C. on Friday night, hurling his MLB record 23rd consecutive quality start. That part isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, but what was encouraging was the Mets’ offense rewarding him with a victory, a pleasant deviation from the norm. The Mets actually put a run on the board […]

Game recap September 14: Win No. 69

New York Mets’ righty Noah Syndergaard has struggled to consistently be the dominant force many expect him to be for much of 2018, but on Friday night in Boston, he was at his best. Syndergaard went seven scoreless innings, holding baseball’s best team to only three hits, and the visitors were able to take the […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 7: Team Too Many Homers

The Mets didn’t beat the Phillies in their series opener on Friday, but they did push across three runs against Philadelphia ace Aaron Nola, raising his ERA and in theory helping Jacob deGrom inch closer to the Cy Young award. In a season that has been lost for several months now, you have to take […]

MLB: New York Mets at San Francisco Giants

Game recap August 31: Curse of the Bullpen

Zack Wheeler has been on an absolute roll for the better part of the past three months, and despite another dominant outing on Friday night, the righty was dealt a tough luck loss against the club that drafted him. For most of the evening, Wheeler found himself locked in a tight pitcher’s duel with Giants’ […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap August 24: Hello, Jason Vargas

Jason Vargas’ two-year/$16 million free agent pact has been nothing short of an abomination thus far, but for one night, at least, the Mets got their money’s worth. Vargas held the free-falling Washington Nationals scoreless over six impressive frames on Friday night, allowing only three hits and punching out a season high eight hitters as […]

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 17: Stealing Syndergaard

The Phillies ambushed Noah Syndergaard in the bottom of the first inning Friday night, scoring twice before the Mets’ righty had even recorded an out, and while he was able to settle in as the night progressed, the poor beginning to the contest was enough to do him in. Matched up against Philadelphia ace Aaron […]

Game recap August 10: Wheelin’ and Dealin’

When the Mets traded Carlos Beltran and his expiring contract to San Francisco in July 2011, they envisioned the Single-A pitcher they brought back in return, Zack Wheeler, becoming a staple in their starting five and a dominating force in their rotation for years to come. It has taken roughly seven years, but the Mets’ […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap August 3: Groundhog’s Day

How Jacob deGrom has managed to keep a remotely upbeat attitude over these past few months is nothing short of astonishing. Friday night’s game¬†against Atlanta represented the Mets’ latest chance to play spoiler in a division race that they themselves have long been out of, and despite yet another gem from their ace, New York […]
