MLB: New York Mets at San Diego Padres

Game recap July 27: An inauspicious start

Thursday was a bittersweet day for Mets fans as we said goodbye to Lucas Duda, a player who spent 10 years within the Mets organization, eight of which were in the big leagues. And while we all had probably come to terms with the eventual reality that the Mets would ship Duda off, I personally am said […]

MLB: New York Mets at San Diego Padres

Game recap July 24: Shades of angst

Mets 5, Padres 3, Final Last night was the kind of start that epitomizes Mets fans’ agony; a starter provided a superlative outing, but instead of making for an enjoyable watchable game, it only makes the Flushing faithful dream about what might have been this summer. Jacob deGrom provided eight stingy innings, allowing two earned runs […]

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres

Padres Series Preview July 24-27

The Mets (45-51) begin a ten-game road trip on Monday night at spacious Petco Park against Andy Green’s San Diego Padres (43-55). New York has won four of five, their streak snapped on Sunday with a 3-2 loss to Oakland. The Padres return home after taking three of four in San Francisco. While these two […]

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 19: Playing for Pride

At this point in the season, wins and losses for the Mets don’t hold much meaning; they’re not going to get back in the race, and I think even most of the players would admit to that now. So as enjoyable as last night’s 7-3 win may have been, it really didn’t mean much towards anything. […]

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap July 14: Welcome back

Primer After being snubbed for the All-Star Game, Jacob deGrom got the first start for the Mets out of the break, squaring off against the second Wild Card team Rockies. Jon Gray, the Rockies’ opening day starter who missed significant time with a stress fracture in his foot, made his sixth start. Perhaps most importantly, […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Colorado Rockies

Rockies Series Preview July 14-16

The Mets host Colorado this weekend for a three-game series to kick off the unofficial second half of the season, one which figures to see significant roster turnover with Terry Collins’ club facing double-digit deficits in both the division and Wild Card races. The Rockies come out of the All-Star break with a rather firm […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game recap July 8: At least Jay Bruce can hit

Despite all the confusion about whether the Mets are officially sellers yet and Michael Conforto’s place in the lineup, I thought Saturday’s game would be a respite. Adam Wainwright is now a below replacement level pitcher. The Mets should be able to pound their former tormentor. Even if the pitching and fielding collapse, it never […]
