MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Game recap August 21: Pollock-ed

It’s been a whirlwind of a week for those following the orange and blue. First, we said goodbye to Curtis Granderson, who was shipped off to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed reliever Jacob Rhame. Granderson was not only a key component in the success this team has found over the last few […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap August 20: Sunday bloody Sunday

WHO WON: The Miami not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, A WEIRD START: Weird is the best way to describe Jacob deGrom’s start on Sunday afternoon. With eight strikeouts and no walks in 6.1 innings, you might think he shined – except there’s more to this story. deGrom gave up 10 hits and allowed five earned runs, three […]

MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees

Game Recap August 14: Hansel Pitched, Hansel Pointed, Hansel Blew It

In this lost season, most Mets games — especially the losses — have followed a similar pattern, almost resembling that of a Choose Your Own Adventure.

Game recap August 11: Amed Rosario saves the day

Primer The Mets are bad. The Phillies are worse. At this time of the year, that leads to some pretty boring games, and the matchup of Seth Lugo and Nick Pivetta didn’t really do much to change that perception. On the other hand, there are plenty of prospects in the major leagues for mediocre teams at […]

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 10: Back home in Philly

Mets 10, Phillies 0 Final In a matchup between two teams playing for the future, the lopsided outcome was not in doubt as the Mets put up three runs in the first and never looked back. In a season that has offered both Mets pitchers and fans unending pain, an otherwise dominant night was marred […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves

Phillies Series Preview August 10-13

On the heels of yet another disappointing homestand where they were lucky to eke out one win, the Mets (50-61) head to Philadelphia to face a rebuilding club sporting the majors’ worst record. After dropping the first five on their recent road trip, the Phillies (42-69) salvaged the final three games before returning to Citizens […]
