MLB: Game One-New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 16: This is why we can’t have nice things, because baseballs hit them in the hand

Game One: Mets 24, Phillies 4 Game Two: Phillies 9, Mets 6 Just over two weeks after an epic drubbing by Washington — where they lost by 21 runs on July 31 — the Mets saw things from the other side of the equation as they scored the most runs in franchise history, which included […]

MLB: New York Mets at New York Yankees

Game recap August 14: Run support for deGrom again? Against the Yankees?

Another week, another deGrominant output. The Mets’ ace was at it again against a potent Bronx Bombers’ lineup. The struggling crosstown ace, Luis Severino, has not had even close to his best stuff recently – and last night was no different. Amed Rosario opened the game with his first career lead-off home run, followed by […]

Game recap August 10: Wheelin’ and Dealin’

When the Mets traded Carlos Beltran and his expiring contract to San Francisco in July 2011, they envisioned the Single-A pitcher they brought back in return, Zack Wheeler, becoming a staple in their starting five and a dominating force in their rotation for years to come. It has taken roughly seven years, but the Mets’ […]

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap August 6: I love Jeff McNeil and you should too

The New York Mets are a very interesting team to support. One day, you are furious – steaming mad – that Mickey Callaway is batting Jose Reyes over Jeff McNeil and Luis Guillorme. And then after a few losses, you’re saying, “well, I see some glimpses of hope here.” And that is exactly what last […]

Game recap July 27: Deep Freese

David Freese will forever be a known name in Mets lore after his strikeout completed Johan Santana’s 2012 no-hitter, but on Friday night, the veteran extracted a little bit of revenge against the boys in orange and blue. In New York’s 5-4 loss in Pittsburgh the veteran right handed hitter drove in all five Pirates’ runs, […]

Game recap July 9: The Enigma

Mets 4, Phillies 3 During any given start, Zack Wheeler can look like the ace many projected him to be once upon a time. The problem though is that during any given start, Zack Wheeler can also look like a backend starter that should be moved to the bullpen. The 6’4 right-hander is an enigma, […]

MLB: New York Mets at Toronto Blue Jays

Game recap July 4: Jose, Can You See?

It’s cool when the Mets prove they can actually win a game once in a while. The Mets defeated the Blue Jays last night by a score of 6-3, for just their seventh victory in their last 30 games. Apparently, wins are so rare for the Mets nowadays that they now call for firework celebrations —or at […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap June 29: No end in sight

On Friday night the Mets continued their furious surge…towards the worst record in the National League. New York’s night in Miami got off to a rocky start long before first pitch, when starting pitcher Jacob deGrom had to be scratched late due to a family emergency. In his place, young Corey Oswalt made his first […]
