MLB: Game One-New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 16: This is why we can’t have nice things, because baseballs hit them in the hand

Game One: Mets 24, Phillies 4 Game Two: Phillies 9, Mets 6 Just over two weeks after an epic drubbing by Washington — where they lost by 21 runs on July 31 — the Mets saw things from the other side of the equation as they scored the most runs in franchise history, which included […]

Game recap August 14: Bad baseball

Primer The Orioles are one of the few teams that are having an even more depressing season than the Mets, sitting at 35-84. Jason Vargas is on the mound against the much-better-but-still-boring-and-bad Andrew Cashner. As a cherry on top of this shitty game sundae, Gary Cohen is on vacation for this series, with Wayne Randazzo […]

MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees

Game recap August 14: Run support for deGrom again? Against the Yankees?

Another week, another deGrominant output. The Mets’ ace was at it again against a potent Bronx Bombers’ lineup. The struggling crosstown ace, Luis Severino, has not had even close to his best stuff recently – and last night was no different. Amed Rosario opened the game with his first career lead-off home run, followed by […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap August 7: Jason Vargas leaves early, a love story

Primer It’s a Jason Vargas start. Don’t think much more really needs to be said. At least the greatest second baseman of all time – Jeff McNeil – is still in the lineup. Game Recap Mercifully, Jason Vargas wasn’t in the game for long. After recording only one out and giving up three hits, an almost […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap August 2: Are you not entertained? (No, we are not)

Braves 4 Mets 2 | Final On a humid and miserable night that ended with rain dampening whatever was left of the spirits of whatever was left of the Flushing faithful, the Mets limply lurched to another loss, while Atlanta played for a share of first place. It wasn’t until the third when the Mets […]

Game recap July 28: A man with many talents

It’s incredibly difficult to reach and succeed as a hitter in the big leagues. It’s also incredibly difficult to reach and succeed as a pitcher in the big leagues. That’s why you rarely, if ever, see a two-way player in baseball anymore (Shohei Ohtani is the exception). It’s not surprising that Jacob deGrom – who’s […]

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, […]

Game recap July 20: A second half team

Noah Syndergaard held the potent Yankees offense to only one run, Yoenis Cespedes had two hits including a home run and Michael Conforto drove in three runs during Friday night’s series opener with the Yankees. In a lot of ways, this game was everything the Mets envisioned could be routine when they broke camp in […]
