Brewers series preview May 12-14

The Mets (16-17) head to Miller Park for a weekend series with the Milwaukee Brewers (18-17), a club that has won three of four and six of its last nine at home. New York wrapped up a homestand where they were one blown save away from a 5-1 record against Miami and San Francisco, considered a […]

MLB: San Francisco Giants at New York Mets

Game recap May 9: Righting the ship

Thanks to the media circus following Matt Harvey, one could hardly tell that the Mets are becoming one of the hotter teams in baseball right now. Winning eight of their last 11, including a 6-1 tilt against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night, the Mets have righted the ship and injected life back into a […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap April 5: Never say die

I have to say, with Rafael Montero on the mound tonight, I did not have high expectations about this game. Coming into their Cinco de Mayo matchup, the Marlins held a 5-2 edge over the Mets in 2017, with the Amazins’ only real triumph being outlasting the Fish in a 16-inning marathon back in April. […]

Guess I’m not watching today. 5:53 p.m.: Final score of today’s game against the Nationals was 23-5. If I didn’t have to recap Monday’s game, I almost wouldn’t watch out of principle. Also, how has upper management not […]

Forget the losing streak – the Mets hadn’t even sniffed a lead in a week before heading to face their main […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap April 28: The streak always breaks

You get a sense sometimes, or, at least, I do, that things won’t get better. That this bad weather or bad mood or string of bad luck will never end. That you’re stuck in this state of despair forever. The Mets felt like that. Everything had gone wrong: the slumps and the injuries were relentless […]

Game recap April 21: Pitchers hitting, pitchers running, some pitchers pitching better than others

Primer A bruised and battered Met team faced off against the Washington Nationals, starting a three-game set over the weekend to start the season series against their biggest rival for the division crown. Jacob deGrom was slated to start, but was of course hurt (stiff neck), meaning Matt Harvey got to move up a day […]

As they wrap up the third week of a young but already very eventful season, New York welcomes the first-place Washington Nationals to town for a three-game set with both teams seemingly headed in opposite directions.
