Game recap September 13: The end of an era

Marlins 3, Mets 4 [Game 1] Marlins 2, Mets 5 [Game 2] It was a day where the games mattered even less than usual; Mets captain David Wright announced that this season would be his last, and the collective wail from Mets fans meant the doubleheader sweep of the Marlins was a joyless one. On […]

MLB: Game One-New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 16: This is why we can’t have nice things, because baseballs hit them in the hand

Game One: Mets 24, Phillies 4 Game Two: Phillies 9, Mets 6 Just over two weeks after an epic drubbing by Washington — where they lost by 21 runs on July 31 — the Mets saw things from the other side of the equation as they scored the most runs in franchise history, which included […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 24: Doesn’t look like anything to me — What do you do with a calm win?

Mets 5, Brewers 0, Final You’ll forgive Mets fans for not knowing what to do with games like last night. Wednesday night’s late-inning implosion against the Marlins makes sense; that kind of collapse and waste of individual effort is baked into our DNA. Thursday’s display of exemplary starting pitching, extra-base hits and bullpen competence is simply […]
