MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap June 14: Scripted

Diamondbacks 6, Mets 3, Final It seemed like the same old story was unfolding at Chase Field: a decent outing by a starting pitcher, anemic offense and an imploding bullpen would converge for a desultory loss by the Mets in Arizona. And other than a late rally and generally close game, things otherwise followed the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap May 29: Who needs fingers anyway?

Primer After Monday’s day of arguably-too-much-baseball, the Mets and Braves were back at it again on Tuesday night after yet another rain delay. Steven Matz took the mound for the Mets, giving New York what appeared to be a significant advantage over Braves starter Anibal Sanchez. In more nightmarish news, Jose Reyes was in the […]

Game recap May 28 (Game 2): Rain delays and runs

Thankfully, the New York Mets four-game losing streak didn’t last very long. The Mets rebounded from their crushing loss earlier Monday to defeat the Braves 8-5 in Game 2 of their doubleheader. Because you already got one recap out of me and it’s well into the wee hours of the night, a short introduction will have to suffice. Here […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 24: Doesn’t look like anything to me — What do you do with a calm win?

Mets 5, Brewers 0, Final You’ll forgive Mets fans for not knowing what to do with games like last night. Wednesday night’s late-inning implosion against the Marlins makes sense; that kind of collapse and waste of individual effort is baked into our DNA. Thursday’s display of exemplary starting pitching, extra-base hits and bullpen competence is simply […]

Game recap April 15: A rout

Well that was a sight for sore eyes. After struggling to score only 17 collective runs in their past eight games, the Mets offense exploded for 12 runs on 16 hits in Tuesday night’s series-opening win over Toronto, an even more impressive feat when you consider both Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto did not play. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 10: This team just doesn’t know how to lose

Primer Times are good in Mets land. Panic City is a ghost town, as the Mets have jumped out to an incredible start, running the best record in baseball and tying a club record for best start to a season. The good times were set to keep rolling, with Jacob deGrom taking the mound against […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap April 8: Surging Mets complete statement sweep in D.C.

It’s dangerous to put too much stock in an early April series, but what the Mets just accomplished in D.C. this weekend certainly sent shots over the Nationals’ bow. New York’s 6-5 win in 12 innings on Sunday night completed a three-game sweep against their arch rivals, but the way the Mets won was indicative […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap April 1: Sunday blues

Primer After Noah Syndergaard was brilliant (don’t let two juiced ball homers obscure a fantastic Opening Day start) and Jacob deGrom battled his way into a solid start in Game two, the Mets found themselves with a 2-0 record atop the NL East. Steven Matz took the mound opposite Cardinals 2017 breakout pitcher Luke Weaver, […]

MLB: Spring Training-New York Mets at Houston Astros

What we’re not talking about: spring training stories that deserve a second look

Spring training is in full swing for the New York Mets and while everyone’s attention has seemingly been on Mickey Callaway’s inaugural season as manager, Hansel Robles getting shelled and the unwarranted smear campaign of Yoenis Cespedes — don’t get me started on that last one — there are plenty of things going on in camp that […]

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap September 29: Only two more of these to go

Primer The Mets are bad. The Phillies are worse. Ben Lively is mediocre (bordering on bad). Matt Harvey is worse. Both teams are better served by losing. It’s late season baseball at the bottom of the standings, folks, so get excited. Game Recap In what is probably (hopefully) his last series in a Mets uniform, […]
