MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies

Game recap August 17: Stealing Syndergaard

The Phillies ambushed Noah Syndergaard in the bottom of the first inning Friday night, scoring twice before the Mets’ righty had even recorded an out, and while he was able to settle in as the night progressed, the poor beginning to the contest was enough to do him in. Matched up against Philadelphia ace Aaron […]

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 […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 1: Jose Reyes gets…redemption?

Every series the Mets play against the Nationals seems to follow the same exact script: In no particular order, one game is a total blowout where the Mets get destroyed, one game is a frustrating affair in which the Mets get completely shut down on offense and blow a bunch of opportunities (these are usually against Gio Gonzalez) and the third game […]

Game recap July 20: A second half team

Noah Syndergaard held the potent Yankees offense to only one run, Yoenis Cespedes had two hits including a home run and Michael Conforto drove in three runs during Friday night’s series opener with the Yankees. In a lot of ways, this game was everything the Mets envisioned could be routine when they broke camp in […]

Game recap July 13: That’s more like it

While trade rumors continue to swirl around the Mets’ pitching staff, Noah Syndergaard’s return from a lengthy DL stint gave the club a glimpse of why they should potentially not deal from their only strength. Syndergaard wasn’t quite dominant, but he was plenty good enough Friday night, limiting the Nationals to only one run across […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 25: Shrimp

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. Fresh off their ho-hum win Thursday in the series opener with Milwaukee, the Amazins’ felt good about their chances […]

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 […]

Game recap April 15: A rout

Well that was a sight for sore eyes. After struggling to score only 17 collective runs in their past eight games, the Mets offense exploded for 12 runs on 16 hits in Tuesday night’s series-opening win over Toronto, an even more impressive feat when you consider both Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto did not play. […]

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: The Ian Desmond Game

WHO WON: The Ian Desmond-led Colorado Rockies WHAT HAPPENED, NOAH SYNDERGAARD DID NOT HAVE A NICE START: The easiest thing to do is to start with the negative. Sept. 7, 2016 was the last time Noah Syndergaard issued four free-passes in one start. In fact, over 68 career big league starts, Syndergaard had walked four […]
