MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game recap June 18: Unsurprisingly Nimmo, surprisingly rest of team back the dominant deGrom

Ah, Coors Field. The first play of Monday night’s game indicative of what was to come when Brandon Nimmo, who grew up two hours from Coors, continued his scorching hot play as he opened up the Rockies series with an inside-the-park home run. The hitting To no surprise, the hustling Nimmo was home to home in […]

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 […]

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap June 14: Scripted

Diamondbacks 6, Mets 3, Final It seemed like the same old story was unfolding at Chase Field: a decent outing by a starting pitcher, anemic offense and an imploding bullpen would converge for a desultory loss by the Mets in Arizona. And other than a late rally and generally close game, things otherwise followed the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap June 12: Mickey Callaway goes home

Primer Another trip to Atlanta, what could possibly go wrong?

The Mets dropped the second game of the Subway Series, their eighth straight, all of which have come at […]

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 – […]

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 […]

MLB: Chicago Cubs at New York Mets

Game recap May 31: The Fog of WAR

Cubs 5, Mets 1 The Mets fell to 27-27 with a desultory display against the Cubs on a foggy night in Flushing where outfielders lost balls in the haze. It was a fitting backdrop behind the team falling to .500, as it’s not clear if the Amazins are coming or going; after all, the best […]
