MLB: Los Angeles Angels at New York Mets

Padres Series Preview May 23-25

The Mets and their major league-worst 5.14 ERA welcome the last-place Padres to town for a three-game set that pits baseball’s lowest-ranked offense in terms of batting average and on-base percentage against a patchwork pitching staff that’s spent more time on the trainer’s table than on the mound. New York will look to win consecutive […]

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at New York Mets

Game recap May 20: No sweat

Terry Collins became the Mets’ all-time leader in games managed last night, and the Mets celebrated as only they could: putting five straight Angels on base in the ninth inning to face Mike Trout. I fully expected another bullpen implosion, but Trout only hit a sacrifice fly and the Mets were able to escape 7-5. […]

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at New York Mets

Game recap May 19: Home sweet home

Primer  Oh boy have the Mets been bad. After finally climbing the hill back to .500, the Mets dropped seven straight to fall 8.5 games back in the division. Matt Harvey has been awful, Robert Gsellman looks like he’s pitching hurt, and Tommy Milone has been underwhelming. The only two bright spots in the rotation, […]

Game recap May 15: Don’t be surprised, don’t be anything

Well, if you had any hopes of the Mets washing away an embarrassing sweep against the Brewers with a victory in Arizona last night, you went to sleep disappointed. The Mets dropped their fifth game in a row after losing to the Diamondbacks 7-3. Panic City seems to be in full effect, as the Amazins’ continue […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 13: Ugly in pink

What Happened, In One Implosion: The Mets gave up a season-high eight runs in the fifth as part of an 11-4 loss to the Brewers. Mets starters now have an MLB-worst 5.13 ERA. Every time I watch Robert Gsellman, I look for signs that he’ll regress to the mean. The young right-hander entered Saturday with […]

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 May 6: Offensive powerhouse New York Mets

What Happened, In a Sentence The Mets rode five first inning runs to an 11-3 win, but lost Asdrubal Cabrera to a left thumb injury. Mets Start Hot With Wei-Yin Chen out with a tired arm, the Marlins turned to Odrisamer Despaigne to make his first major league start of the season. Despainge was so […]

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. […]
