MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: The Ian Desmond Game

WHO WON: The Ian Desmond-led Colorado Rockies WHAT HAPPENED, NOAH SYNDERGAARD DID NOT HAVE A NICE START: The easiest thing to do is to start with the negative.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap May 1: Welcome to the new dynasty

Primer Meet the Mets, same as the old Mets. Yoenis Cespedes was supposed to miss three days with a jammed thumb, instead he’s in the lineup after the team decided he didn’t even need an MRI. When have we heard that story before I wonder? Steven Matz also said he was fine, then was announced […]

MLB: New York Mets at San Diego Padres

Game recap April 27: deGrom plays stopper

After dropping three of their previous four contests, including a gut-wrenching defeat in the rubber game in St. Louis Thursday, Jacob deGrom was exactly the man the Mets wanted on the mound Friday night. The team needed a stopper and the ace right-hander delivered in spades as New York topped the Padres 5-1 in the series opener. For […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap April 21: New season, same Mets

Jacob deGrom may be the unluckiest starting pitcher in all of baseball. deGrom turned in another fantastic start for the Mets Saturday night, as he struck out 10 and allowed only four hits in seven shutout innings.

Braves 12, Mets 4 Final Just when the good feelings seem to be carrying Mets fans aloft, gravity pulls everyone back to Earth.

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap April 16: The Mets never change

The New York Mets have been spectacular in 2018. Entering Monday night, the Amazins’ sat at 12-2, healthily atop the National League East.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets

Game recap April 13: Glove Potion No. 9

On a day the Mets listened to countless talking heads belittle their dominant beginning to the 2018 season by using their cataclysmic catching situation as a reason it won’t be good enough over the long haul, New York drowned out the noise en route to their ninth consecutive victory. Friday night’s series opener with the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 11: I don’t know what’s happening, but I like it

The New York Mets are the best team in baseball. With their 4-1 victory over the Marlins last night, they are tied with the Angels for the most wins in the league with 10, though the fighting Mike Trouts are 10-3, while New York is 10-1. So that means the Mets have a better winning percentage, which means […]

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 […]
