MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants

Giants series preview May 8-10

The Mets finally play someone outside their division when the San Francisco Giants come to town. Last time the Mets faced the Giants, Madison Bumgarner took control of the Wild Card game and ended the Mets’ season. This year, both clubs are below .500 entering the rematch and facing a slew of injuries. The Mets […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: Offensive powerhouse New York Mets

What Happened, In a Sentence The Mets rode five first inning runs to an 11-3 win, but lost Asdrubal Cabrera to a left thumb injury. Mets Start Hot With Wei-Yin Chen out with a tired arm, the Marlins turned to Odrisamer Despaigne to make his first major league start of the season. Despainge was so […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap April 5: Never say die

I have to say, with Rafael Montero on the mound tonight, I did not have high expectations about this game. Coming into their Cinco de Mayo matchup, the Marlins held a 5-2 edge over the Mets in 2017, with the Amazins’ only real triumph being outlasting the Fish in a 16-inning marathon back in April. […]

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Miami Marlins

Marlins series preview May 5-7

The Mets return home this weekend to host Miami after a successful road trip in Washington and Atlanta where they won four out of six despite continuing to be plagued by injuries, thanks in no small part to a recent offensive outburst. New York was ahead 3-1 in the fourth inning on Thursday night when […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game Recap May 3: Doing it for the run differential

Poor starting pitching, contact-based offense, and timely hitting: This wasn’t the team profile the Mets were supposed to have going into this season. That wasn’t exactly their blueprint for success. But that was the formula last night, as the Mets overcame yet another poor start—this time by Jacob deGrom, seemingly the only starter left in the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game Recap May 2: A Dark Night

Mets News Entering Tuesday, the Mets had been outscored 36-24 over their previous four games … in which they secured three victories. Nothing like a 23-5 blowout (that could have been much worse) to debit the RS/RA ledger.  The Sunday blowout and serious injury sustained by Noah Syndergaard overshadowed the undeniable fact that the Mets were […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game Recap May 1: 24 Hours with Michael Conforto and Jerry Blevins

Sunday 4/30 3:20 p.m.: Just got back from my Sunday softball doubleheader. The Mets are losing 13-5. Guess I’m not watching today. 5:53 p.m.: Final score of today’s game against the Nationals was 23-5. If I didn’t have to recap Monday’s game, I almost wouldn’t watch out of principle. Also, how has upper management not […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Milwaukee Brewers

Braves Series Preview May 1-4

Ah, Thor. You told us you couldn’t raise your arm over your shoulder for bicep soreness, yet you refused an MRI. After pushing your start back three days, you claimed you had no discomfort and were ready to pitch on Sunday. Then you gave up five runs, lasted merely 38 pitches over an inning and a third, and […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game Recap April 30: Queens is Burning

The first two games of this Mets-Nationals series felt like an oasis in the desert. Despite losing 10 of their last 11 games with a severely undermanned roster, the Mets won Friday and Saturday’s games against their streaking divisional rival, offering a glimpse at how good they are when getting timely hits and solid pitching. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap April 29: The turnaround

“It’s impossible to conceive of the Mets going forward without Michael Conforto playing just about every day.” – Gary Cohen The Mets came in to Washington looking like they were dead in the water.
