MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap September 7: A glimmer of normalcy

Mets 7, Reds 2 Final On a night Noah Syndergaard pitched a rehab assignment with the Brooklyn Cyclones in the final game of their dismal season (two innings, three runs allowed on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts), Mets fans will be forgiven for thinking the most compelling baseball in the Mets universe […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap September 4: Death, taxes, and crushing the Phillies

There are only a few true certainties in life. Death, taxes, and the Mets thrashing the Phillies.

The victory allowed the Mets to keep the grim reaper at the gate and stave off […]

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

Game recap August 31: Not very Amazin’

Mets 2, Reds 7, Final The Reds notched a series win against the Mets for the first time in four years, as two teams going nowhere got there in an economical two hours and forty two minutes in the hyperbolically named Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.

Game recap August 8: Three True Outcomes, One Met Win

Mets News Fred and Jeff Wilpon made $52,666,666.67 yesterday.* Every MLB ownership group did. One year ago, Disney bought one-third of BAMTech — the streaming media property founded by Major League Baseball that powers MLB.tv, HBO Now, and many other online video services — for a cool $1 billion. Yesterday, Disney paid another $1.58 billion to acquire […]

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets

Game recap August 5: Blame Collins, not Sewald

When Michael Conforto strode to the plate in the second inning, the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers had every reason to be worried. The Mets were already up 3-0 and had two runners on. Conforto had already homered in his first at-bat. Dodgers’ lefty Rich Hill couldn’t fool anyone with his straight 90 mph fastball. So […]
