Game recap Aug. 28/29: The Walkoff

Primer Jacob deGrom versus a red-hot, newly-acquired, long-time Met rival Cole Hamels is a pretty juicy matchup. It’s too bad one of these teams is competently run and has maintained its status as a National League powerhouse since ascending in 2015 while the other has crashed and burned in spectacular fashion. So it goes. Brandon […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap August 24: Hello, Jason Vargas

Jason Vargas’ two-year/$16 million free agent pact has been nothing short of an abomination thus far, but for one night, at least, the Mets got their money’s worth. Vargas held the free-falling Washington Nationals scoreless over six impressive frames on Friday night, allowing only three hits and punching out a season high eight hitters as […]

MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game recap June 19: Coors

Primer The Mets have a nice little three-game win streak going, and they even got Jacob deGrom a win Monday. Brandon Nimmo is one of the best hitters in baseball, Michael Conforto is heating up and Jay Bruce is finally going on the DL. Things are almost looking up. Oh, except for the fact that […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap June 9: Rinse and repeat

YANKEES 4, METS 3 If Mickey Callaway thought a lineup change would do the trick, it’s safe to assume he’s already back to the drawing board, pondering any possibility imaginable to spark this anemic Met offense. The Mets dropped the second game of the Subway Series, their eighth straight, all of which have come at […]

MLB: New York Yankees at New York Mets

Game recap June 8: Wasted

I’d say the Mets’ offensive ineptitude is getting ridiculous, but that narrative is beyond redundant. On Friday night, New York dropped their series opener with the Yankees 4-1, making them losers of all seven games on their current home stand. In those seven contests, the Mets have scored eight runs. EIGHT. They’ve scored three times […]
