MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game recap June 19: Coors

Primer The Mets have a nice little three-game win streak going, and they even got Jacob deGrom a win Monday. Brandon Nimmo is one of the best hitters in baseball, Michael Conforto is heating up and Jay Bruce is finally going on the DL. Things are almost looking up. Oh, except for the fact that […]

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.

Game recap June 9: Rinse and repeat

YANKEES 4, METS 3 If Mickey Callaway thought a lineup change would do the trick, it’s safe to assume he’s already back to the drawing board, pondering any possibility imaginable to spark this anemic Met offense.

MLB: New York Yankees at New York Mets

Game recap June 8: Wasted

I’d say the Mets’ offensive ineptitude is getting ridiculous, but that narrative is beyond redundant. On Friday night, New York dropped their series opener with the Yankees 4-1, making them losers of all seven games on their current home stand. In those seven contests, the Mets have scored eight runs. EIGHT. They’ve scored three times […]

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

The financially restricted Mets are getting nothing out of their most expensive assets

The New York Mets have not been spending big-time money over the past decade. While this news will come as a surprise to no one, it reinforces the fact that the money this franchise does spend is all-the-more important. As the Mets continue to struggle this season—they sport a 16-26 record over their last 42 games […]

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: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 5: Are we there yet?

In what’s already been a tumultuous week for the Mets and their fanbase, it feels as if Saturday night’s 2-0 loss to Colorado may actually be rock bottom. The loss was the fifth straight for the Mets and marked the third time in four games the offense has failed to score a run. The Mets […]
