BP Mets Unfiltered: 40 Questions About “The Four Horsemen”

Last week, a 30-second MLB.com commercial–starring Steven Matz, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Matt Harvey–began circulating on Twitter. I have no idea where it came from, or where it’s being aired. Honestly, I know absolutely nothing about this ad. But I would like to know more. Here’s what I’d like to know: What was the […]

How Syndergaard and deGrom can be the Next Koufax and Drysdale

New York’s Best Real-Life Fantasy Options

When I was a kid, a unique combination of dread and excitement overtook my house each year in early March, culminating in a strange and wonderful night: my dad’s fantasy baseball draft.

Game recap September 17: Never say die

What Happened: After a long and painful day, the Mets got to celebrate a franchise-record 201 home runs in a season as Curtis Granderson hit a game-tying homer in the 11th and a game-winning homer in the 12th.

Game recap September 1: The Christian Yelich Show

Some team sports are more dependent on individual performances than others. Baseball, pitchers aside, is much more of a holistic endeavor than, say, watching LeBron James carry a “Who’s Who? No, Really, Who?” lineup to deep playoff runs in multiple seasons. But on certain nights, all roads lead through one player’s singular performance. For the […]

Game recap August 24: A flirtatious smile, a hint of hope, a reminder of reality

WHO WON: The red-and-white arched not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, ALRIGHT, WHO MESSED WITH THE DIAL ON JACOB DEGROM’S BACK? That’s a real question, in case you were wondering, because Jacob DeGrom looked rather…uninspiring. When all was said and done, deGrom surrendered five runs across 4.2 innings, but that just scratched the surface. Three of the 12 hits […]

Game recap August 18: Ace-off!

In a sentence A pitcher’s duel ended in a 10-7 Giants win, just like we all wrote it up. The good Seven runs!
