MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap August 2: Are you not entertained? (No, we are not)

Braves 4 Mets 2 | Final On a humid and miserable night that ended with rain dampening whatever was left of the spirits of whatever was left of the Flushing faithful, the Mets limply lurched to another loss, while Atlanta played for a share of first place. It wasn’t until the third when the Mets […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 1: Jose Reyes gets…redemption?

Every series the Mets play against the Nationals seems to follow the same exact script: In no particular order, one game is a total blowout where the Mets get destroyed, one game is a frustrating affair in which the Mets get completely shut down on offense and blow a bunch of opportunities (these are usually against Gio Gonzalez) and the third game […]

Game recap July 31: There’s always a new low

Primer Zack and Jake are still here. That’s good! Bautista and Mesoraco are still here. That’s bad. Both will pass through waivers. That’s good! The Nationals didn’t blow it up. That’s bad. This game (Steven Matz vs Tanner Roark to start a two game set in D.C.) comes with free frogurt. That’s good! The frogurt […]

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 25: They’re not the worst!

The Mets beat the Padres by a score of 6-4 yesterday afternoon, capping off their first series win since May, which fittingly came against the only team in the National League with a worse record than them.

Game recap July 14: The new old Zack Wheeler

Mets 7, Nationals 3 The Mets pitching staff continued its streak of dominant outings Saturday, this time behind a 7.2-inning performance from right-hander Zack Wheeler. While the starting rotation has been incredible throughout much of the season, the team has routinely wasted brilliant performances from almost every member of the staff (we’re looking at you, […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap July 10: What’s a Drew Gagnon?

Primer A day after they were forced to start Corey Oswalt, the Mets turned to 28-year-old Drew Gagnon to make his major league debut against the Phillies. Meanwhile, the Phillies debuted top prospect Enyel De Los Santos, a 22-year-old from the Dominican Republic. That matchup seems like a pretty good snapshot of where these two […]
