MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap August 3: Groundhog’s Day

How Jacob deGrom has managed to keep a remotely upbeat attitude over these past few months is nothing short of astonishing. Friday night’s game against Atlanta represented the Mets’ latest chance to play spoiler in a division race that they themselves have long been out of, and despite yet another gem from their ace, New York […]

Game recap July 29: Zack Wheeler, miracle man

Primer Yup, we’re still here, for whatever reason. Zack Wheeler took the mound against Joe Musgrove mere hours after Jacob deGrom got screwed out of yet another win. Austin Jackson was getting the start in FF because the recently resurgent Michael Conforto has a sore thumb, leaving us less than optimistic for a better offensive […]

Game recap July 27: Deep Freese

David Freese will forever be a known name in Mets lore after his strikeout completed Johan Santana’s 2012 no-hitter, but on Friday night, the veteran extracted a little bit of revenge against the boys in orange and blue. In New York’s 5-4 loss in Pittsburgh the veteran right handed hitter drove in all five Pirates’ runs, […]

That the Mets 7-6 loss to the Yankees in the second game of the Subway Series wasn’t even the third biggest team-related story of the day tells you all you need to know about what’s been going on in Flushing this year. News broke late Friday night of an impending trade with the Athletics for […]

Game recap July 14: The new old Zack Wheeler

Mets 7, Nationals 3 The Mets pitching staff continued its streak of dominant outings Saturday, this time behind a 7.2-inning performance from right-hander Zack Wheeler. While the starting rotation has been incredible throughout much of the season, the team has routinely wasted brilliant performances from almost every member of the staff (we’re looking at you, […]

MLB: New York Mets at Toronto Blue Jays

Game recap July 3: Dear Mets, your bullpen is bad and you should feel bad

Primer Some of us are still watching these games, for whatever reason. Maybe we enjoy being frustrated on some level. Maybe we’re just too damn hot from the heat wave. Regardless of the reason, we didn’t even get the usual enjoyment of GKR, with Gary Apple and Ron taking over the broadcasting while the real […]

Game recap June 26: Wilmer Walkoff

On one of the most whirlwind days in recent Mets’ memory, the Amazins rallied late to reward everyone involved with the team with a feel good walk-off win. Tuesday afternoon at Citi Field began with an impromptu press conference to shockingly announce GM Sandy Alderson was taking a leave of absence immediately due to health complications. […]
