Game recap September 20: Thank god for…Jose Lobaton?

Mets 5 Nationals 4, 12 innings There might be games left on the schedule, but you’ll forgive Mets fans for believing the season over. A day after the team announced that Zack Wheeler would be shut down until 2019 due to workload, fan favorite Wilmer Flores was shut down for the year — diagnosed with […]

The 2018 Mets Minor League Awards

MVP: Peter Alonso Tyler Oringer: Well, this one is obvious. If you’ve been following any of my coverage throughout the season, you know how much I love the future first baseman for the Mets. The fact that the 23-year old was not called up this season in order to manipulate service time for his age […]

Game recap September 15 – Ah, September baseball

In three September appearances, Corey Oswalt has allowed seven earned runs in just 5.2 innings, spanning two starts and a relief outing. The AL East-leading Red Sox were the latest team to take advantage of an inefficient Oswalt, who recorded just five outs despite throwing 61 pitches on the afternoon. Trouble found the 25-year-old immediately, […]

Game recap September 11: Defense fails deGrom. Again.

Primer After being scratched due to weather concerns on Sunday and rained out on Monday, Jacob deGrom finally got to take the mound against the Marlins on Tuesday night. Miami has been something of a bugaboo for deGrom; he’s only 4-5 against them in his career, though he did memorably strike out the first eight […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 7: Team Too Many Homers

The Mets didn’t beat the Phillies in their series opener on Friday, but they did push across three runs against Philadelphia ace Aaron Nola, raising his ERA and in theory helping Jacob deGrom inch closer to the Cy Young award. In a season that has been lost for several months now, you have to take […]

MLB: New York Mets at Los Angeles Dodgers

Game recap September 3: Brandon Nimmo saves the day

It was almost a cruel joke for Jacob deGrom against the Los Angeles Dodgers last night. One start removed from being the only offensive contributor in a game where he pitched eight innings of one-run, 10-strikeout ball, the should-be Cy Young and his orange and blue counterparts were back to their old ways. deGrom promptly surrendered […]

MLB: New York Mets at San Francisco Giants

Game recap September 2: Synder-God

WHO WON: The Mets, but on the West coast WHAT HAPPENED, THE NOAH SYNDERGAARD SHOW: Sunday featured some interesting storylines. Michael Conforto homered. Jeff McNeil and Todd Frazier recorded a pair of hits. Most important? Noah Syndergaard was freaking good. It’s no secret that August was a rough month for Syndergaard, whose 2018 has been […]
