MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap April 20: Everybody hurts sometimes

WHO WON: The red and gray not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, A ROUGH START: The Mets looked great on the defensive end in the first inning. They looked great, but that’s probably because Noah Syndergaard struck out the side. What about when baseballs were put in play? Well, that’s another story. Things started to unravel in the […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap April 9: Syndergaard, Conforto and puppies

WHO WON: The dog-friendly Mets WHAT HAPPENED, SYNDERGAARD FLEXES ANGLING SKILLS, CATCHES MARLINS CHASING THE BAIT 16 TIMES: Yes, that is just one drawn out fishing pun to say Noah Syndergaard did well on Sunday night against the Miami Marlins. Sure, I could’ve said “Syndergaard uses sinkers and hooks to fillet the Marlins,” or “Syndergaard […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap April 3: Together we’ll ring in the new year

WHO WON: The Mets, and anyone who watched this pitcher’s duel WHAT HAPPENED, NOAH SYNDERGAARD IS REALLY GOOD AT BASEBALL: It has been a while since we’ve seen Noah Syndergaard pitch in a regular season game but, in case you forgot, he is good. Well, he’s better than good. He was dominant. He struck out […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap September 21: Erase this one from your memory (trust me)

WHO WON: The navy-colored not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, NOTHING REALLY MATTERS: Things looked great for the first six innings of this one. Asdrubal Cabrera and Rene Rivera used the long-ball to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. Bartolo Colon was doing Bartolo Colon things, as he allowed no runs, walked nobody and struck out six batters. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap September 14: Robert Gsellman can’t do it all

WHO WON: The red and white first-place not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, IT WAS A GOOD GAME: It’s not as if the Mets got blown out, or the Mets couldn’t get a runner on base, or played sloppy defense, or really did anything poorly at all. Rookie starter and apparent wizard Robert Gsellman turned in a strong […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game recap August 24: A flirtatious smile, a hint of hope, a reminder of reality

WHO WON: The red-and-white arched not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, ALRIGHT, WHO MESSED WITH THE DIAL ON JACOB DEGROM’S BACK? That’s a real question, in case you were wondering, because Jacob DeGrom looked rather…uninspiring. When all was said and done, deGrom surrendered five runs across 4.2 innings, but that just scratched the surface. Three of the 12 hits […]

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap August 16: Scraping by on good hair and a nice smile

WHO WON: The blue and grey Mets WHAT HAPPENED, BATS, BLUNDERS, AND WELL-HIT BASEBALLS: Early on there wasn’t much offensive activity of note. The Mets tried to lead a charge in the second inning with Kelly Johnson and T.J. Rivera on base, however the Mets’ old nemesis—hitting with runners in scoring position—decided to rear its […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game Recap July 22: Run of the mill win still a win

WHO WON The blue-hatted, grey jersey’d Mets. WHAT HAPPENED, METS PITCHING BEATS MARLINS BATTING It’s not that Logan Verrett dominated the Marlins. He didn’t. He did, however, give the Mets five solid innings of work while locked in what one might call a pitchers-duel with Marlins pitcher Adam Conley. Verrett was able to hold the […]
