MLB: New York Mets at Chicago Cubs

Game Recap September 13: Wrecked in Wrigley

Saturday, October 17, 2015. Two of the best pitchers in baseball, Matt Harvey and Jon Lester, faced off against each other in a highly-anticipated Game 1 of the 2015 NLCS. Harvey fired 7.2 brilliant innings, fanning nine Cubs batters and only allowing two runs on four hits. Lester didn’t pitch as well, going only six innings […]

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs

Cubs Series Preview September 12-14

After wrapping up a surprising 5-2 homestand with a blowout loss on Sunday, the Mets travel to the Friendly Confines for a three-game set against the defending World Series champions. Chicago holds a tenuous grip on first place after being swept by Milwaukee over the weekend. Leading St. Louis by two games and the Brewers […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap September 7: A glimmer of normalcy

Mets 7, Reds 2 Final On a night Noah Syndergaard pitched a rehab assignment with the Brooklyn Cyclones in the final game of their dismal season (two innings, three runs allowed on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts), Mets fans will be forgiven for thinking the most compelling baseball in the Mets universe […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 5: When the Phillies play like the Nationals

Good news, everyone. If you were one of those delusional fans who were counting on the Mets to make a miracle run and power their way back into the NL East race, you can finally put those aspirations to rest. The Mets were officially eliminated in their divisional race after being shellacked by the last-place […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 4: Death, taxes, and crushing the Phillies

There are only a few true certainties in life. Death, taxes, and the Mets thrashing the Phillies. That’s just what the Amazins’ did in Flushing on Monday, rebounding from an abhorrent series against the Astros to defeat Philadelphia 11-7. The victory allowed the Mets to keep the grim reaper at the gate and stave off […]

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

Game recap August 31: Not very Amazin’

Mets 2, Reds 7, Final The Reds notched a series win against the Mets for the first time in four years, as two teams going nowhere got there in an economical two hours and forty two minutes in the hyperbolically named Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Jose Reyes accounted for both Mets runs, driven in […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 26: TKO

Part of why we love baseball is the feeling that we can’t fully predict anything. Then there are games like Saturday, where the outcome felt like it was decided in the first inning. Asdrubal Cabrera got bad coaching and was easily thrown out at home. Robert Gsellman and Amed Rosario’s mistakes in the field led […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 26: RIP Cespedes

The Mets had already scored once in the top of the first when Dom Smith singled off pitcher A.J. Cole’s glove. Yoenis Cespedes tried to turn on the jets to score the Mets’ second run. In another cruel twist for 2017, Cespedes immediately started limping. He hopped his way to home plate, but it didn’t […]

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 […]
