MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Miami Marlins

Marlins Series Preview September 18-20

Winners of two in a row after dropping five straight, the Mets visit South Beach for the final time this year to face a reeling club that has won just three of its last twenty games. The Marlins return for the first time in almost two weeks, forced to play three “home” games in Milwaukee […]


Game recap September 17: The Good Robert Gsellman

WHO WON: The blue and gray Mets! WHAT HAPPENED, THE NORI AOKI GAME: Normally I lead my recaps off with pitching, but yesterday was different. It deserves a shakeup, all thanks to the one of the one they call Norichika Aoki. Leading off for the Mets on Sunday, Aoki reached base four times (two singles, a […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap September 17: Just like they wrote it up

Before the season started, Mets fans probably expected more games like Saturday night’s 7-3 win against the Braves. An ace starter throws seven dominant innings. The offense relies on extra base hits to put up some crooked numbers. Once again, the Mets flatten a hapless division opponent. Of course, 2017 hasn’t worked anything like the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Chicago Cubs

Game recap September 15: Swept away

Cubs 14, Mets 6 Final In the bottom of the seventh inning of last night’s shellacking, Phil Evans took the field at third and Matt Reynolds replaced Jose Reyes at short — Reyes had himself replaced Amed Rosario, who left the game in the fifth with a tight hip flexor. As the few hopeful signs […]

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: New York Mets at Chicago Cubs

Game recap September 12: Blown out of the Windy City

What will you remember most about the 2017 Mets season? When you look back on this Mets season in 15 years—assuming, of course, that the world has not been destroyed in a nuclear war by then, and baseball still exists in its current form—what will stand out the most? Yes, the injuries were a major issue. […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap September 9: Can’t even tank properly

Rafael Montero started for the Mets on Saturday, and of course there were plenty of good seats available. Nothing scares fans away quite like a slow pitcher who walks five batters per nine innings in his career. Montero got his five walks in just five innings, but Cincinnati couldn’t cash in during a 6-1 Mets […]

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: 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 […]
