Stat Preview: Miami Marlins, May 21-23

The Marlins come into town after blowing a five-run ninth inning lead in Atlanta Sunday afternoon. The pitching is young and inexperienced, and that has shown through in the walk totals, as Miami is tied for third in the league in bases on balls (187, Mets pitchers are 25th at 135). There have been some […]

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays

Stat Preview: Toronto Blue Jays, May 15-16

The Mets return home after a disappointing road trip, hoping to rebound in a shortened interleague series with the Blue Jays. Toronto has struggled as of late too, losing seven of their last 10.

The one place they did add over the winter […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at St. Louis Cardinals

Stat Preview: St. Louis Cardinals, April 24-26
