MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game Recap April 18: Redemption

The past few days have been a trying time in Metsland. After Monday’s heartbreaker in which the team blew a 6-1 lead in the eighth inning, followed by Tuesday’s frustrating loss, it was looking like the early-season mirage was over.

Game recap April 4: Is Facebook cool again?

I created my Facebook account in 2010, when it was the place where all the cool kids were; I could log in and see what all my friends were up to and what pages they were “becoming a fan” of and what their status updates were. Kids and adolescents could legitimately spend hours a day on Facebook […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap April 1: Sunday blues

Primer After Noah Syndergaard was brilliant (don’t let two juiced ball homers obscure a fantastic Opening Day start) and Jacob deGrom battled his way into a solid start in Game two, the Mets found themselves with a 2-0 record atop the NL East. Steven Matz took the mound opposite Cardinals 2017 breakout pitcher Luke Weaver, […]
