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 […]

Game recap August 4: Encouraging signs

The Mets decided against trading one of their best trade chips before the July 31 deadline, insisting Zack Wheeler’s improved performance was for real and he’d be a key cog in 2019. Other organizations reportedly worried the velocity gains weren’t for real and that he would soon regress back to his normal self, but the Mets were […]

Game recap July 25: They’re not the worst!

The Mets beat the Padres by a score of 6-4 yesterday afternoon, capping off their first series win since May, which fittingly came against the only team in the National League with a worse record than them.

Game recap July 20: A second half team

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 Toronto Blue Jays

Game recap July 4: Jose, Can You See?

It’s cool when the Mets prove they can actually win a game once in a while. The Mets defeated the Blue Jays last night by a score of 6-3, for just their seventh victory in their last 30 games. Apparently, wins are so rare for the Mets nowadays that they now call for firework celebrations —or at […]

Game recap July 3: Dear Mets, your bullpen is bad and you should feel bad

Primer Some of us are still watching these games, for whatever reason. Maybe we enjoy being frustrated on some level. Maybe we’re just too damn hot from the heat wave. Regardless of the reason, we didn’t even get the usual enjoyment of GKR, with Gary Apple and Ron taking over the broadcasting while the real […]
