Game recap September 21: A win for deGrom!

Jacob deGrom added to his Cy Young candidacy in D.C. on Friday night, hurling his MLB record 23rd consecutive quality start. That part isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, but what was encouraging was the Mets’ offense rewarding him with a victory, a pleasant deviation from the norm. The Mets actually put a run on the board […]

Game recap September 20: Thank god for…Jose Lobaton?

Mets 5 Nationals 4, 12 innings There might be games left on the schedule, but you’ll forgive Mets fans for believing the season over. A day after the team announced that Zack Wheeler would be shut down until 2019 due to workload, fan favorite Wilmer Flores was shut down for the year — diagnosed with […]

Miami has been something of a bugaboo for deGrom; he’s only 4-5 against them in his career, though he did memorably strike out the first eight […]

MLB: New York Mets at Los Angeles Dodgers

Game recap September 4: The Real Jason Vargas

Primer Monday night was a frustrating but still enjoyable experience, because we had the pleasure of watching Jacob deGrom. Watching the best of the Mets’ three-ish homegrown aces is a reminder of the sort of potential this team had and still has. Tuesday, we got Jason Vargas, a reminder of why that potential has been and […]

Game recap September 2: Synder-God

WHO WON: The Mets, but on the West coast WHAT HAPPENED, THE NOAH SYNDERGAARD SHOW: Sunday featured some interesting storylines. Michael Conforto homered. Jeff McNeil and Todd Frazier recorded a pair of hits. Most important? Noah Syndergaard was freaking good. It’s no secret that August was a rough month for Syndergaard, whose 2018 has been […]
