MLB: San Diego Padres at New York Mets

Game Recap May 25: The Tears, They Fall Like Rain

Mets News On Wednesday night, the news that late waiver-bait acquisition Tommy Milone hit the “it’s literally a 10-day” disabled list signaled that preseason number-eight starter Rafael Montero would likely start Saturday’s game at Pittsburgh. That Montero would pitch on the road had nothing to do with the purported “hostile environment” which led the Mets to start […]

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap May 16: Desperate in the desert

By the eighth inning of last night’s game, I started wondering, “are moral victories in baseball?” College sports can have teams that are so obviously mismatched that you don’t really expect your team to win. As long as they don’t embarrass themselves, the loss isn’t that bad. The Mets weren’t getting blown out of this […]

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Diamondbacks series preview May 15-17

There aren’t a lot of positives surrounding New York’s National League club in recent weeks. Mired in controversies, suspensions, and so many injuries that one could mistake the Citi Field diamond for a gridiron, the Mets (16-20) still managed to win four of six and head into this past weekend with some perceived momentum. That […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 13: Ugly in pink

What Happened, In One Implosion: The Mets gave up a season-high eight runs in the fifth as part of an 11-4 loss to the Brewers. Mets starters now have an MLB-worst 5.13 ERA. Every time I watch Robert Gsellman, I look for signs that he’ll regress to the mean. The young right-hander entered Saturday with […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 12: Harvey shows up, offense doesn’t

WHO WON: The beer-themed not Mets WHAT HAPPENED, MATT HARVEY HAS A WEIRD START AFTER A WEIRD WEEK: If you have been on Twitter or have even a mild interest in baseball, you have heard about the Matt Harvey saga and all that it entails. A night out, a migraine, golfing, bodyguards being sent to […]

Brewers series preview May 12-14

The Mets (16-17) head to Miller Park for a weekend series with the Milwaukee Brewers (18-17), a club that has won three of four and six of its last nine at home. New York wrapped up a homestand where they were one blown save away from a 5-1 record against Miami and San Francisco, considered a […]

MLB: San Francisco Giants at New York Mets

Game Recap May 8: Walker Walks Off

Mets News This feels like the darkest timeline. With the hapless Giants in town to face the bumbling Mets, some are asking whether two teams have ever both been swept in a three-game series. Prognosticators are demonstrating that losing Noah Syndergaard hurts the Mets more than any team losing its best pitcher. Asdrubal Cabrera crooked his […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: Offensive powerhouse New York Mets

What Happened, In a Sentence The Mets rode five first inning runs to an 11-3 win, but lost Asdrubal Cabrera to a left thumb injury. Mets Start Hot With Wei-Yin Chen out with a tired arm, the Marlins turned to Odrisamer Despaigne to make his first major league start of the season. Despainge was so […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap April 5: Never say die

I have to say, with Rafael Montero on the mound tonight, I did not have high expectations about this game. Coming into their Cinco de Mayo matchup, the Marlins held a 5-2 edge over the Mets in 2017, with the Amazins’ only real triumph being outlasting the Fish in a 16-inning marathon back in April. […]
