MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game Recap September 20: Only 10 more of these to go

On Wednesday, the Mets lost 9-2 to the Marlins, who finished off a three-game sweep of the Mets in a series that hardly rustled leaves in the baseball world. For the Mets, the still-bad Rafael Montero made his 17th start of the season, which is just mind-blowing. Montero got roughed up in four innings, giving up […]


Game recap September 18: Matt Harvey is bad now

Primer It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these. The distraction of starting a Ph.D. and moving back to my native NYC has been rather nice, giving me a multitude of excuses to duck out on watching a bad Mets team drag the corpse of their season across the finish line. It’s always […]

Game recap September 12: Blown out of the Windy City

What will you remember most about the 2017 Mets season?

Game recap May 21: Over before it ever began

WHO WON: The red and haloed not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, THE TOMMY MILONE EXPERIENCE: Look, you can say a lot about what happened while Tommy Milone was on the mound in this one. None of them good. The best way I can describe Milone’s performance is how he faced Jefry Marte. Marte came into this one […]

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks

Game recap May 16: Desperate in the desert

By the eighth inning of last night’s game, I started wondering, “are moral victories in baseball?” College sports can have teams that are so obviously mismatched that you don’t really expect your team to win. As long as they don’t embarrass themselves, the loss isn’t that bad. The Mets weren’t getting blown out of this […]

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Diamondbacks series preview May 15-17

There aren’t a lot of positives surrounding New York’s National League club in recent weeks. Mired in controversies, suspensions, and so many injuries that one could mistake the Citi Field diamond for a gridiron, the Mets (16-20) still managed to win four of six and head into this past weekend with some perceived momentum. That […]
