Game recap September 13: The end of an era

Marlins 3, Mets 4 [Game 1] Marlins 2, Mets 5 [Game 2] It was a day where the games mattered even less than usual; Mets captain David Wright announced that this season would be his last, and the collective wail from Mets fans meant the doubleheader sweep of the Marlins was a joyless one. On […]

MLB: New York Mets at San Francisco Giants

Game recap September 1: Matz more like it

Steven Matz was utterly dominant in his 25th start of the 2018 season, tossing seven innings of one-run ball against an Andrew McCutchen-less Giants offense.

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap May 22: A plane flight, a double, a loss

Primer After a month of futility, the Mets found themselves in another good patch, having won four straight games and facing the lowly Marlins again on Tuesday night.

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.

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap April 21: New season, same Mets

Jacob deGrom may be the unluckiest starting pitcher in all of baseball. deGrom turned in another fantastic start for the Mets Saturday night, as he struck out 10 and allowed only four hits in seven shutout innings. With the pitcher’s spot due up to begin the seventh, manager Mickey Callaway sent Wilmer Flores up to […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

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

BP Mets Unfiltered: With d’Arnaud out, Mets should think creatively behind the plate

On Wednesday, breaking a shocking streak of good news, the Mets announced catcher Travis d’Arnaud has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL, the ligament often referenced in correlation with Tommy John Surgery. On the surface, as much as I hate to say it, I’m not entirely surprised by this development. When the Mets acquired […]
