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 […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap May 1: Welcome to the new dynasty

Primer Meet the Mets, same as the old Mets. Yoenis Cespedes was supposed to miss three days with a jammed thumb, instead he’s in the lineup after the team decided he didn’t even need an MRI. When have we heard that story before I wonder? Steven Matz also said he was fine, then was announced […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game recap April 26: Not with a bang, but with a blown save

Cardinals 4, Mets 3, final The cliché that baseball is a game of inches was never more true as the Mets came within a few of them of escaping St. Louis with a win Thursday. As the baseball hit off Jose Martinez’ bat eluded Juan Lagares’ glove in deep center field in the bottom of the […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap April 20: Mets Make Mistakes, But Outlast Braves in 12

It wasn’t necessarily pretty, but the Mets persevered through a 12-inning marathon Friday night to top the Braves 5-3 and even their weekend series at Sun Trust Park. The game started with a bang for Atlanta, as after their starter Sean Newcomb tossed a scoreless first inning, second baseman Ozzie Albies greeted Mets ace Noah […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Staff Post: Small Sample Size Theater

Whatever else happens this season, we’ll always have the 11-1 record. Best start in baseball. An accomplishment the Yankees have never unlocked. Who cares if no team in the last 30 seasons has won a playoff series after starting 11-1 or better? That’s not a fun fact, it’s a wet blanket fact. What’s fun is […]
