MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Mets

Game recap July 8: Not a perfect game

WHO WON: For the 51st time, it wasn’t the Mets. WHAT HAPPENED, THE GOOD: There were plenty of bad things that happened on Sunday, but cheer up. It wasn’t all for naught, right? There were…some good things that happened. Right? …Right. Here were the positives that came out of Sunday: Brandon Nimmo singled in the seventh to […]

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Mets

Game recap July 6: Grand finale

Most of America has been celebrating the Fourth of July all week, and on Friday night the Mets provided their own fireworks complete with a grand finale. Jose Bautista appeared done earlier this year when the longtime Blue Jay was cut by Atlanta, but since signing with the Amazins, he’s become a surprisingly successful reclamation project. […]

MLB: Game One-New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap May 28 (Game 1): Jacob deGrom deserves better

I love doubleheaders. I wish Major League Baseball would utilize them more regularly instead of just contingency plans for weather issues. Thanks to a rainout on April 22, the Mets were scheduled to play two games against the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves. Currently four games out of the division lead, Monday offered a unique […]
