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: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game recap June 19: Coors

Primer The Mets have a nice little three-game win streak going, and they even got Jacob deGrom a win Monday. Brandon Nimmo is one of the best hitters in baseball, Michael Conforto is heating up and Jay Bruce is finally going on the DL. Things are almost looking up. Oh, except for the fact that […]

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap June 15: Things keep going from worse to worse

The Mets collective asses remain in the jackpot. As astonishingly terrible as things have been going for the Mets, what is equally shocking is just how long their complete offensive inadequacy has gone on.

MLB: Chicago Cubs at New York Mets

Game Recap June 2: Another No deCision

Cubs 7, Mets 1 Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but Jacob deGrom was brilliant once again and the Mets still somehow found a new and excruciating way to lose. The Mets ace worked in and out of trouble all night, allowing seven hits, none of which were hard hit, and one earned […]

Game recap May 28 (Game 2): Rain delays and runs

Thankfully, the New York Mets four-game losing streak didn’t last very long. The Mets rebounded from their crushing loss earlier Monday to defeat the Braves 8-5 in Game 2 of their doubleheader. Because you already got one recap out of me and it’s well into the wee hours of the night, a short introduction will have to suffice. Here […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

How well have the Mets drafted in recent years?

Tonight, At&T Stadium in Dallas will play host to the NFL draft, easily the most publicized draft of all of the major sports. All 32 professional football teams will be looking to add players who can make an immediate impact, which got me thinking about how different things work in Major League Baseball. The MLB draft […]
