Game Recap August 1: Meet Amed

Mets News The best news. As if you hadn’t heard, Amed Rosario, midseason #2 prospect in baseball, was promoted on Monday, minutes after the trade deadline passed. Purportedly, it was Sandy Alderson’s plan all along to delay calling up Rosario “until the roster had solidified.” Alderson’s strategy, however, may not extend to instructing his manager […]

MLB: Oakland Athletics at New York Mets

Game recap July 22: The Wilmer Flores Walkoff

Mets brought 15,000 Noah Syndergaard bobbleheads to Citi Field last night. If fans were fortunate enough, they could sit in line for hours waiting for the gates to open and actually get rewarded for it. Of course, there weren’t enough bobbleheads to go around. All those fans stuck in line arrived to a stadium ill-prepared […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap July 18: Well, that escalated quickly

I must admit, after the weekend series against Colorado, I was still holding out hope. There’s enough baseball left for anything to happen. However, it’s time to accept the facts, the main being that this Mets team just isn’t equipped to rattle off the 10 or 15 wins needed to thrust themselves back into contention. […]

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at New York Mets

Game recap May 21: Over before it ever began

WHO WON: The red and haloed not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, THE TOMMY MILONE EXPERIENCE: Look, you can say a lot about what happened while Tommy Milone was on the mound in this one. None of them good. The best way I can describe Milone’s performance is how he faced Jefry Marte. Marte came into this one […]

Game recap May 15: Don’t be surprised, don’t be anything

Well, if you had any hopes of the Mets washing away an embarrassing sweep against the Brewers with a victory in Arizona last night, you went to sleep disappointed. The Mets dropped their fifth game in a row after losing to the Diamondbacks 7-3. Panic City seems to be in full effect, as the Amazins’ continue […]

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: San Francisco Giants at New York Mets

Game recap May 9: Righting the ship

Thanks to the media circus following Matt Harvey, one could hardly tell that the Mets are becoming one of the hotter teams in baseball right now. Winning eight of their last 11, including a 6-1 tilt against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night, the Mets have righted the ship and injected life back into a […]

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. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game Recap May 1: 24 Hours with Michael Conforto and Jerry Blevins

Sunday 4/30 3:20 p.m.: Just got back from my Sunday softball doubleheader. The Mets are losing 13-5. Guess I’m not watching today. 5:53 p.m.: Final score of today’s game against the Nationals was 23-5. If I didn’t have to recap Monday’s game, I almost wouldn’t watch out of principle. Also, how has upper management not […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Milwaukee Brewers

Braves Series Preview May 1-4

Ah, Thor. You told us you couldn’t raise your arm over your shoulder for bicep soreness, yet you refused an MRI. After pushing your start back three days, you claimed you had no discomfort and were ready to pitch on Sunday. Then you gave up five runs, lasted merely 38 pitches over an inning and a third, and […]
