MLB: Chicago Cubs at New York Mets

Game recap June 3: Welp

Primer The Mets dropped the first three games of their series with the Cubs, most recently with an excruciating 14 inning loss Saturday night. Steven Matz took the mound against Jon Lester as the tail-spinning Mets looked to avoid the sweep. You can basically ignore all of that though, because Kevin Plawecki was batting cleanup – […]

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: Game One-New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap May 28 (Game 1): Jacob deGrom deserves better

I love doubleheaders. I wish Major League Baseball would utilize them more regularly instead of just contingency plans for weather issues. Thanks to a rainout on April 22, the Mets were scheduled to play two games against the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves. Currently four games out of the division lead, Monday offered a unique […]

Game recap May 26: Glad that’s over with

THE GOOD The Mets had 12 hits and scored six runs, which felt like an explosion considering the team’s recent offensive performance. The six runs were the most they’ve scored in a game since last Tuesday, when the Amazins’ put up a 12 spot against the Blue Jays. Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto both hit […]

The Mets came back from the dead to have a legitimate chance to win on Friday night, but reliever A.J. Ramos’ inability to throw strikes ultimately led to them dropping an extra inning contest to the Brewers 4-3.

Game recap May 23: deGrom deServes better

When you start one of the five best pitchers in baseball against one of the five worst teams in the league, you generally expect to win most of the time. When that pitcher fires seven shutout innings, you really expect to win. When Fangraphs gives you a 92.2% chance to win in the ninth inning […]

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Game recap May 20: That’s baseball, Amed

WHO WON: The Fightin’ Amed Rosario’s WHAT HAPPENED, A MATTER OF TIME: If you want an accurate recap of how the Mets hit, don’t look at Clay Buchholz’s line. The righty missed most of last season with an injury, but found a start with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. Welcome back to The Show, here’s […]

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap May 11: Conforto Clutch

Has a team ever needed a hit like the one Michael Conforto delivered tonight more than the 2018 New York Mets? Mired in a miserable offensive stretch that has seen the Amazins’ get shut out three times in the last week and a half, and score only three times in their previous two games against […]
