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 29: Zack Wheeler, miracle man

Primer Yup, we’re still here, for whatever reason. Zack Wheeler took the mound against Joe Musgrove mere hours after Jacob deGrom got screwed out of yet another win. Austin Jackson was getting the start in FF because the recently resurgent Michael Conforto has a sore thumb, leaving us less than optimistic for a better offensive […]

Game recap July 27: Deep Freese

David Freese will forever be a known name in Mets lore after his strikeout completed Johan Santana’s 2012 no-hitter, but on Friday night, the veteran extracted a little bit of revenge against the boys in orange and blue. In New York’s 5-4 loss in Pittsburgh the veteran right handed hitter drove in all five Pirates’ runs, […]

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 […]

Game recap July 9: The Enigma

Mets 4, Phillies 3 During any given start, Zack Wheeler can look like the ace many projected him to be once upon a time. The problem though is that during any given start, Zack Wheeler can also look like a backend starter that should be moved to the bullpen. The 6’4 right-hander is an enigma, […]

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 June 20: This park is stupid

Coors Field, in theory, is a lot of fun. It’s a place where the baseball magically flies further, with dingers all over the place and double-digit run totals all the time. It’s extra-base hit galore, and every home run goes 450 feet. It’s like some kid messed with the settings on a video game. It’s a mythical […]
