MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

Game recap August 6: I love Jeff McNeil and you should too

The New York Mets are a very interesting team to support. One day, you are furious – steaming mad – that Mickey Callaway is batting Jose Reyes over Jeff McNeil and Luis Guillorme. And then after a few losses, you’re saying, “well, I see some glimpses of hope here.” And that is exactly what last […]

Game recap July 29: Zack Wheeler, miracle man

Primer Yup, we’re still here, for whatever reason. Zack Wheeler took the mound against Joe Musgrove mere hours after Jacob deGrom got screwed out of yet another win. Austin Jackson was getting the start in FF because the recently resurgent Michael Conforto has a sore thumb, leaving us less than optimistic for a better offensive […]

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 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. We’ve been watching this story for about six weeks now, and this team is just entirely incapable of getting out of […]
